I want to thank my friends at Yarnspirations and JOANN Fabrics and Crafts for sending a lovely box of their new outdoor yarn to try – Bernat Maker Outdoor!

Let’s get started!

Materials:

Yarn ~ 2 – Bernat Maker Outdoor Yarn in Oranges (249 yds ea) 475 Yards total

Hook ~ N

Stitches: 

St ~ Stitch

Sk ~ Skip

Ch ~ Chain

Sc ~ Single Crochet

Dc ~ Double Crochet

Size:

22″ x 36″

Instructions:

Ch 62

Row 1:  Sc in 2nd ch from hook and each across. = 61 sc

Row 2:  Ch 1, turn, *sc in 1st st, ch 1, sk st, sc in next st*, repeat *to* across. = 31 sc & 30 ch 1

Row 3:  Ch 1, turn, sc in 1st 2 sts, *ch 1, sk st, sc in next st*, repeat across, sc in last st. = 32 sc & 29 ch 1

Rows 4- 14: Repeat rows 2 & 3, then row 2 once more.
