The ch 1/ch 2 at the beginning of each round does NOT count as stitch, and neither does the slst.
When finished, this blanket measures 55” square.
This throw is made by crocheting 25 motifs (13 of C1 and C3 and 12 of C2 and C3) then seaming them together to form a large square. You will then add a border.

Make 25 total squares. For 12 of them, substitute the “C1” note for “C2”. Or, have fun playing with as many colors as you’d like!

Feel free to substitute your preferred seaming method for this technique.
This throw uses a slst seaming technique. Work on the *wrong side* so that the seam is on the inside of the blanket. I recommend laying all the squares in your preferred order with the wrong sides facing. Slst across each row, then each column to join.
Refer to (the end of) this tutorial if needed: https://youtu.be/4esnNXv-YEQ
Seaming is complete; weave in any ends.
Proceed to Border Instructions
The border addition is completely optional, but provides a clean finish.
Join C1 to any st around the throw.
Round 1: ch 1, *sc in ea st until you reach the ch 1 space, sc 3 in the ch 1 space* four times. sc in ea st until the beg of the round. slst to the first st.
FO, weave in any ends, and proceed to Finishing Instructions
Weave in any ends you may have remaining. If you decide to block your throw, I recommend laying it flat, spritz it with water, and let air dry or steam lightly. The sample pictured isn’t blocked.
