I would not say there is a proper pattern but an idea on how to combine the yarns to make the blanket. I made this last year. You combine yarns and use a larger crochet hook. You crochet a chain long enough and just do singe crochet. It works up really quickly and is so warm.

Great idea to combine yarn pieces and do three at a time in different color combinations.

First thing first, where is the pattern for this? I Read her story about crocheting using 3 skeins together doing the double crochet, but no pattern. This one will leave you guessing on what to do. ??? I do have a lot of yarn left over in my stash and think this would be a good way to use it up. Using the P hook should make it a thick heavy blanket, but not sure how big or small to make it? So I'll just have to go look to see what else I can do with the yarn. Thanks for sharing .

There are charts you can find online that will tell you how many stitches you need for each size blanket you make. Maybe there is one that will show these numbers for when you use 3 strands of worsted. I would probably go with the number of stitches for bulky. I agree, this is not really a pattern. It is more of a tip for making a thick, interesting looking blanket in a hurry. I find it pretty, but it really depends on your colours.

Mixing up the colours this way can be really nice when the colours chosen work well together. I like this blanket. Everyone has their own preferences to how things should look. This is a great stash buster for people who have a lot of leftovers from larger projects. Thank you for sharing it with us.

Make it in single colour stripes, mixing the colours looks old fashioned and dull. The sort of blanket you'd only use for a muddy dog.
