Easy Shades of Grey Blanket

When I open my yarn cupboard
 (where I HOARD way too much yarn)…there’s a common colour.
GREY over everything.
Including tons of neutrals!
I have so many half/quarter skeins of grey yarn…and I had the idea of making a cozy grey blanket for a while.

I finally grabbed my Yarn Winder (best ever!) and collected all my tangled grey skeins.
I used an easy stitch that can be done at any level (even beginners!)
This blanket can be adjusted for size very easily.

Grab all that grey yarn and let’s do this!

Quick Notes before you begin:
-since you will be using multiple skeins of different yarn, make sure they are all the same weight (this one uses Super Bulky yarn, size 5/6)
-The key to making any size you want: your foundation chain needs to be in multiples of 6 + ch 2 (eg: Ch 30, ch 2, turn)
-the size I made is more of larger baby blanket/lap blanket
-I changed colours frequently, feel free to use one colour or as many as you want!
-Row 1 and 2 will show you exactly how to do the Shell Stitch (the pattern will just repeat those 2 rows throughout)
-When a row starts with a SC, it will end with a SC
-When a row starts with a half shell (3DC), it will end with a half shell

OTH Crochet Nook Pattern: Shades of Grey Blanket

Hook size: P/10.00mm 
Yarn suggestion: Super Bulky Grey Yarn

Repeat from *, your row will end with a SC, ch 2, turn

Row 2: (the ch 2 you just did COUNTS as 1 DC), 2DC in the very first stitch, *skip 2, SC in center of first shell from previous row, skip 2, 5DC in the single crochet from previous row, now Repeat from *, your row will end with 3DC in the single crochet from the previous row.

(See pictures below)

Row 3 – 42: Repeat Row 1 and 2

SL ST twice and fasten off

-from here you can SC around to add a border if you want, make sure each corner stitch has 3SC

-Colour changes: I did 3 rows of lighter greys, then 10 rows of dark grey – repeated that 3 times, and ended with 3 rows of light grey
