It went something like - every time there is bright blue there is a row of mustard, every three or four rows there is a row of cream/beige. In between I just took it free and easy with lilac. purple, mocha and brown. One 25g ball did two rows which makes up each stripe.
The stitch is 1dc, 1tr, 1dc, 1tr etc. Then on the next row you put the treble in the double crochet and the double crochet in the treble - Got that?? It is called cobble stitch. I can't think of a more apt name for my blanket as it is a bit cobbled together without a pattern.
It has a purpose, it is a wedding present for August. I hope they have many happy times picnicing, chatting and watching the clouds go by. I think I will buy them a flask to wrap up with it.
Happy crochet. Jo x
