Shop the Houndstooth Baby Blanket crochet kit here!
ABOUT This blanket uses alternating single crochets and double crochets while changing colors each row to create the houndstooth stitch. One main color is used while transitioning 4 or 5 accent colors to create the appearance of an ombré/fade until your blanket reaches your desired size. Feel free to choose any colors you love; your blanket does not have to fade as the sample blanket does - bright sections of color would be just as lovely!
GAUGE 4 x 4” (10 x 10 cm) = 14 sts and 12 rows in the houndstooth stitch with Main Gauge (larger) hook, blocked.
Using CC, ch 23, follow instructions from Section 1 until you have at least 18 rows completed. Measure the inner 4" (10 cm) of your blocked swatch to get the most accurate measurement. Within 4” (10 cm), you should have 14 sts and 12 rows in order to achieve the specified finished measurements.
