Remix River Rock Baby Blanket



I am apparently on a blanket roll and decided to work on designing a baby blanket. Instead of recreating the River Rock blanket in a smaller format, I changed it up a bit, and I have to say I was able to make it with 2 Caron Cakes, including 3 rows of edging. I crochet loose and use a big hook, but I think for those who have 2 cakes can now add this one to their project pile. This blanket measures approximately 40x36 inches.

You may not copy, redistribute, sell, or represent this pattern or these photos as your own. Feel free to sell finished items made from this pattern. Please make sure you credit me as the original designer.

Now this part is optional, you either add the edging or not. But if you want to continue with the edge, without cutting the yarn, ch 1, then 2 sc in each space on the side of the of the blanket until you get to the first corner. Do 4 sc in the corner then sc in each stitch on the bottom of the blanket until the next corner. Do 4 sc in the corner, then 2 sc in each space on the side of the blanket until the next corner. Do 4 sc in the corner, then sc in each stitch across until the next corner. Do 4 sc in the corner, and then sl st in the ch 1. Just sc in each stitch across until you get to the corner. You will do 2 sc in one sc, then 2 sc in the next sc for your corner. Just repeat this until you have 3 rounds of edging. This is optional and more of a recipe so use if you want.

Fasten off and weave in any ends.
