April Preemie Blanket - CAL Day 24

Good morning all and hello day 24.

Today we move into the second last set of decorative stitches before the border. This month sure has flown by, and it's been so amazing to see everyone sharing their progress with me! You guys are making some pretty beautiful blankets!

You will need:

4.5mm hook
DK/8ply/light worsted weight yarn in minimum of 6 colours.

Yarn Note: I did not start with complete balls. All 6 of my balls were originally 100g balls with a little of each used. They are a mix of Stylecraft Special DK, King Cole Pricewise and Moda Vera Marvel 8ply for my 6 colours. You could choose 6 colours and follow my colour changes, or you could make every line a different colour (excellent way to use scraps) or you could even use some self striping yarn, or a solid colour.

Colour Changes: I change my colours by completing the last yarn over and pull through of the last stitch in the row with the new colour for the next row, so I don't have to join with slip stitches. Of course, this means you'll have to redo that one last stitch each day as you won't know what colour is next, but the finished piece will be much neater this way.

My Colours are

A - Beige
B - Blue
C - Dark Blue
D - Tan
E - Mint/Turquoise

F - Dark Grey

Day 24

With E
36: Ch3, turn, skip the first 4 stitches, *(2dc, ch2, 2dc) in the next stitch, skip the next 3 stitches*, repeat across, dc in the last stitch.
