5-Hole Windowpane Blanket Pattern

The pattern repeat is a solid block and a windowpane block. Each solid block looks like it has 10 dc by 5 rows Each windowpane block looks like it has 5 holes by 5 holes. Always plan on an odd number of blocks to have a solid block at all 4 corners. Light Worsted weight yarn (Caron Simply Soft) J Hook Gauge: 5 ½”/pattern repeat Ch 19 per pattern repeat +11 (for the last solid block) Here’s how to calculate how many chains to start with: 17 blocks = 8 pattern repeats x 19 st= 152 ch +11 ch (for last solid block) = ch 163 # of blocks 9 blocks 11 13 15 17 19 21 23 25 Foundation Chain Ch 87 Ch 106 Ch 125 Ch 144 Ch 163 Ch 182 Ch 201 Ch 220 Ch 239 Finished size w/o edge 25” 30.5” 36” 41.5” 47” 52.5” 58” 63.5 69”

Make sure your last stitch on every row goes into the turning chain of the previous row. It really helps to count the number of stitches and holes in each block as you go. It’s quite heartbreaking to have to pull out rows because you added a ch 1 in a solid block. Ch 2 counts as first dc. Ch 3 counts as first dc + ch 1. Row 1: Dc in 3rd ch from hook, dc in next 9 ch, *(ch 1, sk 1 ch, dc in next ch) 5 times, dc in next 9 ch*, repeat from * to * across. Turn. Rows 2-5: Ch 2, dc in next 9 dc, *(ch 1, sk 1 ch, dc in next dc) 5 times, dc in next 9 dc*, repeat from * to * across. Turn. Row 6: Ch 3, sk 1 dc, dc in next dc, (ch 1, sk 1 dc, dc in next dc) 4 times, *(dc in next ch-1 sp, dc in next dc) 4 times, dc in next ch-1 sp, (ch 1, sk 1 dc, dc in next dc) 5 times*, repeat from * to * across. Turn. Rows 7-10: Ch 3, sk 1 ch, dc in next dc, (ch 1, sk 1 dc, dc in next dc 4 times, *dc in next 9 dc, (ch 1, sk 1 ch, dc in next dc)*, repeat from * to * across. Turn. Row 11: Ch 2, dc in ch-1 sp, (dc in next dc, dc in next ch-1 sp) 4 times, *(ch 1, sk 1 dc, dc in next dc) five times, (dc in next ch-1 sp, dc in next dc) 4 times, dc in last ch-1 sp*, repeat from * to * across. Turn. Rows 12-15: Ch 2, dc in next 9 dc, *(ch 1, sk 1 ch, dc in next dc) 5 times, dc in next 9 dc*, repeat from * to * across. Turn. Repeat Rows 6-15 until desired length is achieved. Do not fasten off, continue to edging. Edging Ch 2, HDC in every stitch around edge of blanket. Use 2 HDC into the posts of each dc along the sides. Use 3 HDC at each corner. Join with a sl st to the first st. Repeat edging row as desired.
