Assembly

all the assembly was done using Slip Stitch in back loops only

you may use whip stitch if you so prefer.

I assembled the squares in panels of six in this order

top row: Variations 6, 4, 1

bottom row: Variations 3, 2, 5

Then I put four 6 square panels together to make a 24 square panel 8 squares wide and 3 squares high.

Then I put the three 24 square panels together to form a blanket that was 9 squares high and 8 squares wide.

72 total squares.

 

Picot Border

Using Color B

Join with SC at any corner.

SC around until you come to the join of two squares.

Make picot

continue around

To Make Picot

At the join of two squares ch 7, slip stitch in same space

 

Weave in all ends
