This is the same pattern as you find here. I've just done a bit of sorting and made an all English version for you. (Have been meaning to do that for a while…)
Facts about my blanket:
12 x 16 = 192 squares
Number of colours: not known…
Yarn: The colours are mostly Sandnes Smart and Dale Falk + leftovers from my stash. The white yarn in Vestlandsgarn from Gjesdal.
Hook : 4 mm
The blanket weighs 1250 grams.
It measures ca 110 X 150 cm.
Please let me know if something is difficult to understand.
I’m using US crochet terminology.
(Follow the link to pages explaining the stitches.)
Start: make 5 ch, join with ss into a ring.
Round 1: 4ch (=1dc,1ch), 1dc + 1ch 11 times. Join with ss in 3rd ch. 12 dc.
Round 2: Start in one of the ch spaces. 3 ch (= 1dc), 1dc, 1ch, *2dc, 1ch* in the remaining ch spaces. Join with ss in 3rd ch. 12 groups of 2 dc.
Round 3: Start in one of the ch spaces. 3 ch (= 1dc), 2dc in ch space, 1ch, *3dc, 1ch* in the remaining ch spaces. Join with ss in 3rd ch. 12 groups of 3 dc.
Round 4: Start in one of the ch spaces. 4ch (= 1 tr), 1tr, 3ch, 2tr, (=1st corner),
*1ch, (2dc,1ch,2dc) in next ch space, 1ch, (2dc,1ch,2dc) in next ch space, 1ch, (2tr, 3ch, 2tr) (=2nd corner)**,
repeat * to ** 2 times, 1ch, (2dc, 1ch, 2dc) inthe next two ch spaces, 1ch. Join with ss to 4th ch.
I like the assemblyline method so I prefer to make a lot of circles before I start the 4th round.
Join as you go method:
I like to join the squares in the last round, like I show here.
(Moonstitches have a great tutorial for joining hexagons. It’s mostly the same.)
The squares are joined together in the corners and at two places on the sides.
Start by crocheting the fourth round on one of your circles. The joining starts with your second square:
Start in a corner. Crochet 5 ch (count as a tr) 1tr, 1ch, next ch through the corner of the other square, 1ch, 2tr. (The first corner is done)
First side: 1ch, (2dc, 1ch through 1ch on other square, 2dc), 1ch (2dc, 1ch through 1ch on other square, 2dc), 1ch
Next corner (where you will join your square to the square to the right and the one above): 2tr, 1ch, 1ch through corner of square to the right, 1 ch through corner of the square above, 2 tr.
Do the next side as the first. In the next corner you crochet 1 ch through the corner of the square above. Finish the round as in pattern for the 4th round.
This is how I did the border:
One row of dc first. On dc in every dc and one dc in every ch space. 5 dc in the corners.
One row of sc in every dc of last round. Make one extra sc in the corners.
One row of loops: Start with one sc, chain 4, skip two sc on last round – all the way round.
