- The ch 1 at the beginning of each row doesn't count as a stitch.
- You will begin every row with a hdc in the very first stitch. It's a hidden height adjustment. It brings your hook up to just below where it needs to be so that all your stitches are actual hdcs and you don't have any chains that count as stitches on the side of your work. I think that it makes the whole blanket look neater overall.
If you would prefer you can do a ch 2 and then skip the very first st with the ch2 and the next stitch then begin your count of 14 hdcs. Just remember when you come to the end of your row your last stitch will end in your beginning ch 2 from the previous round.
- If you would like to increase the size of this blanket it is made in multiples of 30+4.

Row 1: Hdc in second ch from hook, skip next st, *hdc next 14 st, 3 hdc in next st, hdc 14, skip one ch*, repeat across, when you reach the last two chs, skip one and end with hdc in last ch, ch 1, turn. (Work in BLO for this round and every subsequent round.)
Row 2: Hdc in first st, skip 1, *hdc 14, 3 hdc in next st, hdc 14, skip 2 st*, repeat across, when you come to the last 2 st, skip one, hdc in last st, ch 1, turn. I worked 8 rows in each color. You can change more frequently or less frequently for wider or narrower stripes.
Row 3-120: Repeat row 2.
Rnd 1: Ch 1, turn, sc across top stitches starting with the very first stitch, in the same pattern as the blanket (Row 2 above). The only difference is that you no longer need to skip stitches at the beginning and ending of the row, just between the chevrons. 3 sc in first corner, sc down left side of the blanket.
Just keep your stitches even you don't need to achieve a certain number. Just don't let the side pucker and pull together. You can lay it on your lap and see how it's looking as you go along. When you reach the bottom corner, 3 sc in corner, sc across the bottom of blanket following the same pattern of the blanket, 3 sc in corner, sc up right side of blanket. 2 sc in same st as first st worked, join to top of 1st sc, ch 1, turn.
Rnd 2: Sc around blanket, keep working in pattern on top and bottom portions of blanket, on the top corners you are going to continue placing 3 sc in the center sc of the previous row's 3 sc. On the bottom corners, because they are more "pointy" you are going to work 2 sc in the previous row's 3 sc.
(On the following rounds you kind of just have to eyeball it and find what looks like the center 3 sc would be and put 2 sc in each of those 3 st. At the end of the round, ch 1, turn.
Finish off and weave in ends.
