Double V Baby Blanket - Free Pattern

Today, I'm sharing my latest free pattern.  It's called the Double V Baby Blanket.
I needed a light weight, airy blanket and this is what I came up with.
Here's a photo of the entire blanket.
And here's a close-up view of the stitch detail.

This is an easy pattern and works up quickly.  If you can do the following stitches : ch, dc, and sc, then you will have no problem at all.

Double V Baby Blanket - Free Pattern

Bernat Baby Sport yarn in Pale Blue (I had a big skein and used less than 1/3 of it.)
size H crochet hook
yarn needle for weaving in ends

special stitch : Double V - work (dc, ch 2, dc, ch 2, dc) in the same stitch.

ch 106.

1- in 7th ch from hook, work Double V, *sk 4 chs, work Double V in next ch, repeat from * across until there are 3 chs left, sk 2 chs, dc in last ch.

2- ch 3, turn.  *work Double V in the center dc of the Double V in the previous row, repeat from * across, dc in the top ch of the turning ch.

3 through 40 - repeat row 2.

at the end of row 40, you are ready to start the edging or border, ch 1, then sc evenly around the edge of the blanket, putting 3 sc in each corner st.  work 2 rows of sc for the edging, then finish off, weave in ends.  that's it.  super easy and lovely to look at.

***Note:  Please don't claim this pattern as your own.  If you would like to make a blanket off this pattern, please feel free to do so.  You may sell these blankets, but if you are asked, please give me credit for the pattern.  Thanks a bunch!***
