Christmas Advent Blanket CAL

Welcome to my Christmas Advent CAL. I decided to make this Christmas blanket 3 weeks ago, so its been a bit of a rush! I wanted a blanket that myself and my daughter's could snuggle under and watch a movie on Christmas Eve, so this is what I came up with. I have tried to make the squares as easy as possible. I will be releasing them over the next 12 days, so that you can work at your own pace with them as some of the squares you will need to make 2, 3, or even 4 of. 

I have used a 4mm hook and Deramores Studio DK yarn - although you can use an DK yarn - this blanket would be great for using up your stash.

Blanket Measures approx. 115cm x115xm 

Tension Gauge 

19 stitches x 11 rows =10cm (rows of DC).

I blocked my squares to 22cm x 22cm.

(Don't worry if some of your squares are a little bit bigger than others,they will be fine once joined). 

Disclaimer - Due to the shortage of time I haven't been able to have the patterns tested by any other pattern testers. I have gone through the patterns throughly, but if you do notice any errors please let me know.
