Modified version of Elisabeth Andree's Summer Blanket Square

Modified version of the Elisabeth Andree Summer Blanket Square


This is a modified version of Elisabeth Andree's japanese square that she used for her summer blanket here:

She said she used a pattern from a Japanese book but I couldn't find a link to it anywhere, so I have written up the pattern myself. It may not be exactly what Elisabeth has done but it's as close as I could get. I also added a around of double crochet at the end because I need to squares to go together with some other squares I'm working on, so it's a bit different than this one:

but you can keep the border she used if you wish (I don't include instructions on how to do it though).

YOU WILL NEED:
8ply yarn
4mm hook

Pattern is written in US terms.
Rounds 1, 3 and 4 I have advised you of what you should have at the ends of these rounds to make sure you're on track. E.g. (6 ch5 spaces)

Ch4 and ss into first ch to form a circle
Round 1 - *ch5, ss into circle**, repeat from * to ** five times. (6 ch5 spaces)
Round 2 - sc 4 times in each ch5 space, ss into first sc of the round.
Round 3 - ch3, *2dc in next stitch, dc in next stitch**, repeat from * to ** until end of round. (36 stitches)
Round 4 - ch6, *dc in next 3 dc, ch3**, repeat from * to ** ten more times, dc in next two dc, ss into 3rd chain of beginning ch6. (12 lots of 3dc)
Round 5 - ss into ch3 space, ch4, 2tr, ch2, 3tr all into ch3 space, skip dc, dc into next dc, skip dc, 3hdc into ch3 space, skip dc, sc in next dc, skip dc, 3hdc in ch3 space, skip dc, dc in next dc, skip dc, *3tr, ch2, 3tr into ch3 space, skip dc, dc in next dc, skip dc, 3hdc in ch3 space, skip dc, sc in next dc, skip dc, 3hdc in ch3 space, skip dc, dc in next dc, skip dc**, repeat from * to ** to end of round, ss into top of beginning ch3.
Round 6 - ch3, dc in next 2 dc, *2dc, ch2, 2dc into ch3 space, dc in each dc**, repeat from * to ** to end of round, ss into top of beginning ch3.
