Free Pattern :: Easy Striped Blanket

Hello Friends,

Remember this post?  Well, I've finally finished the blanket, it only took me over a year!  It's super easy to make, and if you like a mindless stitch that you can do in front of the TV, this one is perfect.  Take a look at the final product...Free pattern below!

Required Crochet Stitches:  chain (ch), single crochet (sc) Note: All terms are U.S. 
Main Blanket:  You can make this any size you like, all you need to do is chain an even number of stitches to start.  For my blanket I wanted something fairly large, so I started off with: 
ch 164,  

Foundation Row - Sc into the 4th ch from hook.  *Ch 1, skip next ch, sc into next ch*.  Repeat pattern across and turn.  

Row 1 - ch 2, (counts as first sc, ch 1).  Skip first sc, *1 sc in next ch 1 space, ch 1, skip next sc*.  Repeat pattern across, ending with 1 sc in last ch 1 space of turning ch, turn.  

Row 3 and beyond - Repeat row 1.  I used 3 colors for my blanket and changed whenever I felt like it, no rhyme or reason.  I just sort of went with what looked good to me. 
Measurement - approx. 46" x 72", using worsted weight yarn. 
Border - I did a simple sc border evenly around.
