You blanket should look like this<br />3 dc<br />3<br />4 5  6 7  8  9<br />Skip 2 ch<br />

For Sides, always Chain 1 then Cluster into next available space<br />3 dc here<br />Ch 1<br />
Your blanket should look like this<br />
Continue the Side – Chain 1 then Cluster into next available space<br />3 dc here<br />Ch 1<br />
To move to the next row, Slip Stitch into the top Chain of the original ch 3<br />slst here<br />
Slip Stitch connects the blanket and allows you to add new rows<br />
When beginning new rows, always start with 3 Chains to replace 1st dc<br />Ch 3<br />
Then make 2 Double Crochets into the Slip Stitch space for your 1st Cluster<br />2 dc<br />Ch 3<br />
To finish the Side, Chain 1 then Cluster into next available space<br />3 dc here<br />Ch 1<br />
Your blanket should look like this<br />
Now for Corners, always Chain 3 then Cluster into the SAME space<br />3 dc here<br />Ch 3<br />
Your blanket should look like this<br />
So Remember<br />For Sides<br />Chain 1<br />Cluster into NEXT available space<br />For Corners<br />Chain 3<br />Cluster ...
So for this Side, Chain 1 and Cluster into the NEXT space<br />3 dc here<br />Ch 1<br />
And for this Corner, Chain 3 and Cluster into the SAME space<br />3 dc here<br />Ch 3<br />
Continue this process to make your blanket as large as you want<br />
Remember, to move on to new rows, Slip Stitch into the top Chain of the ch 3, and make a new ch 3 with 2 dc<br />2 dc here...
In case you run out of yarn or want to change colors, make sure you have enough yarn to reach the Slip Stitch<br />
Carefully remove the hook and knot the new yarn through that loop<br />
Then place the hook back into the same loop and ch 3 with the new yarn <br />Disregard   old yarn<br />Use new yarn<br />
To finish a blanket, reach the Slip Stitch, but make a Chain instead and pull the end of the yarn through the ch<br />Ch 1...
Use a bobby-pin or large needle to hold the end of the yarn<br />
Weave the yarn through the top loop of the 1st Double Crochet<br />
Then knot the end until it feels secure<br />Small knot<br />Cut tail off<br />
