Abbreviations

Note: I used chainless starting dc for every first dc of each row/ round instead of ch 3. There’s another good crochet technique to use is ch 2, dc into same stitch ( counted as 1st dc). In the pattern below you’ll see I simply state dc into 1st stitch for every first dc of each row/round, so just choose your best technique ūüôā

The finished crochet oceanic lovey blanket is approximately 12 inches in diameter.

Special stitch used:

V stitch: ( dc, ch2, dc ) into same stitch or space.

2dc- V stitch: ( 2dc, ch2, 2dc ) into same stitch or space.

Skill level: Easy
