Candy Drops Blanket ♥

got a sweet tooth ? you won't be able to resist
 this crochet pattern,colorful circle motifs joined by mini granny squares create a distinctive and simple design.

instructions :
the little motifs are just 3 round of dc.
the ch 2's dont count as a st.
Rnd 1: ch 3, 12 dc in 3rd ch from hook join with a sl st to 1st dc.(12 dc)
Rnd 2: ch 2, 2dc in each dc around join as befor. (24 dc)
Rnd 3: ch 2, 2 dc in 1st dc, dc in next dc. *2dc in next dc, dc in next dc. Repeat from *around . join as befor . End off.
for the joining border, I used white and the flat braid method. the link to that is on the right side bar under joining grannies". the 1st cs rnd will be an increase rnd with 2 sc in 1st dc, sc in the next 2dc, 2sc in the next dc - and so on.  then you will follow with the connecting chain method. the circles are connected by 4 loops on each side 

for the little fill-in squares : I used white and they are the beginning of granny square,then a round of sc with the corners being (sc, ch 1, sc to the blanket, ch 1,sc) as I go
