5( 5.5, 6.5, 7) oz Berroco Comfort Dk Color: Cream
Crochet hook 4mm/G Scissors
Tapestry needle

Note: This blanket can be made from any weight yarn, but you would need to adjust the amount of yarn, the hook size and rounds per granny for the different weights. You will want to stay with one weight for the blanket size you choose, so if you decide to make yours in worsted work all your grannies in that, also you may need to go up a hook size and make less rounds, fingering weight yarn you would want to drop a hook size and make more rounds.
Stitches Used:
Ch: chain
Sl st: slip stitch
Dc: double crochet Sc: single crochet

Instructions:
It isn’t mentioned below where to change your colors so you do it however you like or about every 2 rows like I did mine.
With your hook and yarn, make a magic circle,
Round 1: ch3, 2dc, ch1, 3dc, ch1, 3dc, ch1, 3dc, ch1, sl st with with ch3, pull the tail of the magic circle to close the hole.

Round 3: ch3 (counts as dc), 2dc in the first ch1 sp, *in the next sp between the 3 groups of dc make 3dc, [3dc, ch1, 3dc] in next ch1 sp* repeat from *to* until you reach the unfinished the first corner, 3dc, ch1 in the last ch sp, sl st with the ch3 from the beginning of the round.
Round 4-15: Repeat round 3, You will be increasing a 3dc clusters in between the corner clusters by 1 for every row. So round 3 has 1 3dc cluster, round 4 will have 2, round 5 will have 3 and so on.
