Only use this version if you are resizing the original blanket to a different size based on the stitch pattern multiple of 6 sts + 3.

If you are making the full-size blanket using 165 stitches please use this version: Wonder Blanket CAL Part 2.

The alternate version will not look exactly as pictured above – the skip 1 stitch for the first Row was eliminated in order to make the stitch multiple work.

  1. Hi 🙂 This version works with a stitch pattern multiple of 6 + 3. If you chained 328 stitches initially at the end of R1 you would have 327 (because you lose 1 stitch for the turning chain); which gives you 327 stitches – 3 = 324 divided by 6 = 54 so yes it works 🙂 At the end of Mistie’s section you should have 327 stitches and it will work with my instructions.

  2. I am doing the Wonder Crochet Blanket CAL alternate size. I confirmed with Mistie on Part 1 in regards to changing my stitch count in order to cover a king-size bed. So I have a stitch count of 328. When crocheting your first row, I ended up with 5 dc, leaving 1 stitch for the final double crochet. But I think, the way I am reading the pattern, that I should end with dec5 together leaving 1 stitch for the final double crochet. Will your row 1 work with 328 stitches? Thanks.
