Pattern notes

The ch 3 at the beginning of each round counts as the first st of the round
Rounds 1 and 2 are the set-up rounds.
The pattern is formed by alternating plain and increase rows.
The blanket consists of six spokes formed by the six front post double crochets.
Increases are at the rate of 12 per
increase row which averages to 6 sts per row
