Wonderful new textured crochet blanket pattern
For years, I have absolutely loved the look of the various wheel stitches. Using color to play up the texture brings an amazing accent to any room. Fringe has always been a fun touch to those blankets that are placed across couches or bed. They give that extra feeling of "Hey, Look at me!" This Ropes and Wheels Blanket would be stunning in a single color and is wonderful in many.

Beginning Standing stitches: These stitches are used to start each row in place of a turning chain.
If you are unfamiliar with working these stitches, you can find a video tutorial here: http://jessieathome.com/crochet-techniques-chainless-row-turns-sc-hdc-dc/
Note: If you prefer to use turning chains, chain the amount needed for the first stitch height and then work a regular sc, hdc or dc in the very first stitch as written. Do not use the chain as a stitch.
This pattern uses standing stitches to begin each row
Photos showing stitch placement are on the last page of pattern and are referenced as P1, P2, P3 etc.
When changing colors, do so in the last step of the last stitch of the row before the color change
