I created this
some dear friends of mine who are adopting a baby. I worked on it in
evenings and was able to finish in 5 days. Thus the name. Some of
you could complete it in a weekend I am sure. It's much like some
of my other shell blankets but it is so fast, and uses less yarn.
20 oz total yarn - hard to measure, as I used up some of 'this
color' and some of 'that color'! Great stash buster!
I used a mixture of Caron Simply Soft yarn (worsted weight - 10 ply in UK), and Lion Brand Pound of Love (also worsted weight), and various other similar weight soft yarns. I mixed types of yarn and it turned out great! Use up your odds and ends.
Size H crochet hook (5.00 mm)
3 dc in the 4th ch from the hook. (*Skip 1 chain. Sc in the next ch.
1 chain, then work 3 dc (=1 shell) in the next chain.)
Rep from (*) across row, ending the row with 1 sc in last chain. Ch 3, turn.
Row 2: 3 dc in base of the ch 3. *1 sc in the center dc of the next shell, make 1 shell of 3 dc in next sc. * Rep the sts between (*) across the row. End with 1 sc in the middle of the previous row's shell. Ch 3, turn.
Row 3-?: Repeat Row 2 until 34" long, then fasten off.
with a sl st, anywhere along the edge of the blanket.
Sc around the entire blanket, at the corners do 5 sc in the corner stitch.
Join with a sl st in the first sc.
Ch 3 and 2 dc in same stitch, and then repeat the shell stitch pattern of Row 2, all around the blanket. Corners will work out fine because of the 5 scs you put there on the previous row.
