  • Chain until the chain is the lenth of the desired width of the blanket. Keep track of how many you chain- this needs to be an even number.  
  • Chain 4 more (for first DC and first space). 
  • DC in 6th chain from the hook.
  • * Chain 1, skip one chain from previous row, DC in next.  Repeate until row is complete (make sure you DC into the third chain of the chain 4 of the previous row).
  • Chain 4 to start the next row, DC in 2nd DC from the previous row. *
Continue to repeate the last two bullets until the blanket has reached its desired length.

For mine, I made the blanket to be throw sized- something I'd use on the couch while watching tv.  For the foundation chain, I chained 116 + 4 (for the DC on the end of the row and the first space).  This made the blanket 32 inches wide.  I used a little under 4 skeins of the yarn, which made the blanket 70 inches long.  Below is the blanket (folded so the width of the blanket is the longer side you see) on a full size bed.
