Sweet Ocean Breeze Baby Blanket (Original Version)
New to this pattern? Please click here for the updated version!
Hook: I (5.50mm)
Yarn: Bernat Satin in Sandstone (250 yards, or 2 skeins), Lagoon (140 yards, or 1 skein), and Snow (280 yards, or 2 skeins).
Finished Size: Approx. 34″x26″ (You can easily increase or decrease the size by adding to your starting Ch; just make sure you start with an odd number of Ch)
(1) This pattern is written in American Standard terms.
(2) When working in rows, I usually do my starting chain and first row in a hook one size bigger than the pattern asks for. I tend to chain tightly, which pulls at the finished project if I don’t use a larger hook to start. You can do the same if you wish. It is not noted in the pattern.
(3) “SC+DC” just means to put both a single crochet stitch and a double crochet stitch in the same place.

To Begin: Ch103.
Row 1: In 3rd Ch from hook, 1SC + 1DC. (Skip next St; 1 SC + 1 DC in next St) across.
Row 2: Ch2; turn. (Skip next St; 1 SC + 1 DC in next St) across. (Hint: You are working between the SC+DC pairings from the previous row. If you stretch out the row a bit, you’ll be able to see the small spaces in which you’ll be working. The last two stitches will go in the Ch2 space from the previous row.)
Rows 3-76: Repeat row 2.
Fasten off; weave in ends.
