Hey all! This is another square for our plaid patchwork blanket that isn’t plaid, however, I thought the rustic nature of this antler square would work wonderfully with the project. I do want you to make your blanket how YOU want, so if antlers are too woodsy for you, just make 2 extra squares of one of the other designs.
I don’t really know what happened here, but the light antler square turned out better than the dark one! I would recommend having a light background for that reason. And keep in mind that finer color work in turning rows will look less-than-perfect up close, so just remember to respect the process and understand it won’t have perfectly defined lines.

Make 2 CROCHET ANTLER BLANKET SQUARES
2. – 35. Work the graph, treating each square as a sc, working with White and Charcoal.
Notes: Use bobbins with dark gray yarn for the inside antler spikes and carry the same white strand through entire row. On row 27, when working the second antler, you will carry the gray when you come to it (on the inside spike) so you can use it when you need it on the main spike. Once you are finished with the inside spikes, you can drop the bobbins and work with one gray on each side.
With white (or color of your background): Sc evenly all around the square, working 3 sc in each corner. Weave in ends.
Make TWO of these crochet antler blanket squares and add ’em to your pile! See you tomorrow for square #4!
