ch – chain
dc – double crochet
hdc – half double crochet
sc – single crochet
sl knot – slip knot
sl st – slip stitch
sp(s) – space(s)
st(s) – stitch(es)
1. Ch 2, Ch 3, and Ch 4 count as a stitch throughout.
2. Written in US terminology.
3. Use the J hook for the yarn, and the P hook for the fur.
4. Do not end yarn at color changes, drop yarn and pull it up on side of blanket to start working with it when indicated.
Color sequence is 4 rows with Color (A) white, 1 row with Color (B) purple. Do not cut yarn, drop color and pick up to start working with it again. If the yarn is on the right side again, that’s ok, just bring it up and start the next row.
