I recently completed an afghan as a gift for a friend. While I was making it, my daughter would often sit next to me on the couch and snuggle under the blanket as I crocheted. So as soon as I finished that afghan, I started this rainbow colored square throw just for her. I added the white scalloped trim so it would look like fluffy clouds along the edge. She just adores her new “color-y” blanket!
Most of the yarn I used was unlabeled, but I know it was a mixture of Red Heart Comfort, Super Saver and With Love. Yardage is included below.

Alternate DC Starting Chain (alt-ch): Turn your work, but do not chain. Insert hook in first space, yarn over and pull up a loop, yarn over and pull through both loops, insert hook in left front vertical bar of stitch just made, yarn over and pull up a loop, yarn over and pull through both loops. A photo tutorial of this technique can be viewed HERE.
