Five Ball Blanket 2

The principal is the same as Five Ball Blanket 1 but the sequence is different.

These are the colours I used.

A single square – 4 are needed

I began with four identical squares made in the same sequence.

Two pairs joined. Each pair will be built up into a separate module.

These were joined in pairs as before.

Then further rounds added, but all in a different sequence as laid out below.

Centre Squares – as mentioned you will need 4 in the same sequence

  • White
  • Sage
  • Aspen
  • Vintage Peach
  • Apricot

Join in pairs using APRICOT as shown in photo above.

I prefer to crochet these two modules simultaneously to maintain similar tension on each, but feel free to work them as you wish.

From this point the regular sequence differs from the first blankets. Continue in this sequence around both pairs of joined squares to form two modules.

  • Vintage Peach
  • Aspen
  • Sage
  • White
  • Sage
  • Aspen
  • Vintage Peach
  • Apricot
  • Vintage Peach
  • Aspen
  • Sage
  • White

When both modules are completed to this stage join them along the long side using white.

The sequence above continues – which will leave enough yarn for a two colour border. It was important that this edge was White and Apricot if your need is different – change the starting sequence to take this into consideration. So, to continue around the now joined rectangle.

  • Sage
  • Aspen
  • Vintage Peach
  • Apricot
  • Vintage Peach
  • Aspen
  • Sage
  • White
  • Sage
  • Aspen
  • Vintage Peach
  • Apricot
  • Vintage Peach
  • Aspen
  • Sage
  • White
  • Apricot
  • White

There will now only be enough for one more round. I made thes the border using Apricot.

I didn’t work on it every minute of the day by any means, but it took me less than a week.

(Photographed immediately after finishing and before blocking.)

Don’t forget to tell me if you make it – and use #5ballblanket on Instagram etc.

Have fun.
