This easy free crochet pattern gives you a relief of the somewhat more challenging row with a simple single crochet rows. Perfect. Just the way I like it.
The ‘more challenging rows’ are made up of crossed treble and double treble crochet stitches, and that, ladies and gentlemen, is what produces that amazingly pretty lattice pattern.

This blanket pattern is designed as a lap-sized blanket, which of course, is easily extendable if you so desire, into a baby blanket or sofa throw.
Crochet Blanket Yarn & Color Choices
I fell in love with this Oatmeal color, but I also would fancy this in charcoal grey.
The yarn is Red Heart Super Saver, which comes in many other colors. You can use a color to pull all the colors of your room together. This is why I have a burnt orange throw in my living room. Perfect to create a Fall ensemble and to pull summer decoration into the Autumn season.
Each skein is 7 oz/198 g; 364 yds/333 m. You’ll need approx. 4 balls (or more if you are going for a larger size). The yarn suggests a crochet hook size

Lattice Crochet Pattern Instructions
Chain 117 st for the stw
Row 1: SC in the second st from the hook, and sc in all st.
Row 2: chain 4. skip each of the next sc, make a double-treble crochet st. then, work the two skipped stitches bij putting a dc in each. Be sure to make these dc behind the treble st, so you’ll get that lattice look.
Sk next sc; dc in next 2 sc. Now, in front of these two stitches, we’ll work that lattice again: loop yarn 3x around your hook and make a double treble st (work through the st 4x). Now you have a lattice st going the ower direction.
