  2. Row 1: In the 5th chain from the hook (counting as a DC and Ch-1), DC. Ch 2, Sk 3 chains, DC in the next chain. Repeat * to * across the row. End with a DC in the last chain. (This creates your first row of lacy spaces.)
  3. Row 2: Ch 3 (counts as a DC here and throughout), turn. DC in the same stitch as the turning chain. Ch 2, DC in the next DC. Repeat * to * across the row, ending with a DC in the top of the turning chain from the previous row.
  4. Repeat Row 2: Continue to repeat Row 2 until your blanket reaches your desired length, changing colors as desired.
  5. Finishing: Fasten off your yarn, weave in any loose ends, and block your blanket if necessary to open up the lacework.
