You wonder why the title? This throw was designed to celebrate the birth of the new royal baby. The crochet pattern has delicate lacy flowers in classy colours fit for a queen. Great for warmer summer months. This crochet blanket would make a lovely wedding or housewarming gift for your loved ones.

1. Throw is made from nine squares. All nine squares are made separately. Then a border is worked around each square. Squares are joined to previous squares while the border is worked.

3. After all squares are joined, edging is worked around entire outer edge of throw.

Borders

Squares are joined into 3 rows of 3 squares each. Refer to diagram below before working Border Round to determine the number of neighboring squares to which the current square is to be joined.

Second–Ninth Square Notes:
– One or two sides of each square are joined to one side of one or two neighboring squares.
– To join squares, the chain-spaces across a side (from corner to corner) are threaded through the corresponding chain-spaces of the neighboring square(s), as follows:
ch-11-join: Ch 6, drop loop from hook, insert hook from right side to wrong side through corresponding corner ch-11 of neighboring square, replace dropped loop on hook and draw loop through, ch 6.
ch-11-join (use when 4 corners meet joining fifth, sixth, eighth, and ninth squares): Visiting the 3 neighboring squares counter-clockwise. Ch 6, drop loop from hook, insert hook from right side to wrong side through corresponding corner ch-11 of first neighboring square, replace dropped loop on hook and draw loop through, ch 1, drop loop from hook, skip next neighboring square (diagonally across), insert hook from right side to wrong side through corresponding corner ch-11 of next neighboring square, replace dropped loop on hook and draw through, ch 6.
ch-7-join: Ch 4, drop loop from hook, insert hook from right side to wrong side through corresponding corner ch-7 of neighboring square, replace dropped loop on hook and draw loop through, ch 4.
ch-5-join: Ch 3, drop loop from hook, insert hook from right side to wrong side through corresponding corner ch-5 of neighboring square, replace dropped loop on hook and draw loop through, ch 3.
