I love this! have been looking for a quick, easy pattern to make for 2 relatives heading off to college in the fall. This will be easy to make in their new college colors.

I agree with lockyerlt, it does need a border, or maybe some fringe on the two short ends

I made a variation of this blanket for my daughter several years ago. I used navy, an emerald green and an off white for the stripes. Instead of single crochet I used the following all across the row: single crochet followed by double crochet. It gives it an interesting texture. It's a very simple pattern. Just decide how wide you want the stripes, and how long & how wide you want the blanket, and which direction you want the stripes to go, then make your "cast on" chain accordingly. A pattern really isn't necessary. I really don't even count the cast on chain stitches. I just keep going until I like the length. I count the rows in the 1st stripe so I know how many rows I'll need of each color. The number of skeins of yarn will depend on the size you want to make. I always get the "no dye lot" skeins in case I misjudge and have to go back for more.

This blanket is cute and looks fun to make, but I think it needs a border.

Dlrsling - if you click on the 'Click here' link, it takes you to a LiveJournal page with several pictures. At the bottom of those pictures is the pattern. (It isn't a very complex pattern, I can see why you missed it.)

I haven't been able to find the instructions , just a picture .
