While this pattern is written for a specific size with a specific gauge, I encourage you to make it your own! Increase for half the yarn you want to use, then use the second half to decrease. Choose a hook that will result in a loose gauge with your chosen yarn. Have FUN!
Sample pictured measures 30” square, and was increased to 91 sts before decreasing.
hdc 3 in the second ch from the hook.
ch 1 and turn. hdc 2 in the first st, hdc in ea st until one st rem, hdc 2 in the last st.
Repeat the Increase Row until the blanket is your desired width.

Join yarn to any space around the perimeter of the blanket.
