Here is the stitch I used to make this blanket! If you make one, I'd love to see.

Foundation chain - Multiple of 6 sts + 1

Row 1: 5 DC in 4th ch from hook, *skip 2 ch, 1 SC in net ch, skip 2 ch, 5 DC in next ch, repeat from * ending 1 SC in last ch. Turn

(I just picked up the next color as I turned each row, not cutting the previous color and worked them up so that I didn't have a gazillion ends to weave in)

Row 2: 3 ch, 2 DC in first sc, *skip 2 dc, 1 SC in next dc (the center dc of 5), skip 2 dc, 5 DC in next sc repeat * ending 3 DC in 1 ch. Turn

Row 3: 1 ch, skip first 3 DC, *5 DC in next sc, skip 2 DC, 1 sc in next dc (the center dc of 5), skip 2 dc, repeat from * ending 1 sc in 3rd of 3 ch, turn.

Repeat rows 2 & 3 until desired length.

Super simple, fast, but oh so mind numbing. Beautiful end results though which makes it all worth it.

Best of Luck!

Wow, that was so nice of you to post that. When I first pulled up your blog today (something I do almost every day) I saw the title of the post and told myself, "That couldn't be you, could it?" Anyway, thanks again. If I ever get it done, I will be sure to share pictures. Thanks.
