Puppytooth blanket is made with four squares crocheted in Houndstooth stitch, using planned pooling.
A few stitches off at the start or end of the row will not affect the pattern too much, adding to the overall unique, hand-dyed ikat-like effect.

For the Houndstooth stitch to show, it’s necessary to either get the exact gauge, or adjust the number of stitches per row depending on your gauge.

Note: These adjustments will affect the final blanket size and yardage.

After squares are completed, they are joined with a decorative Zig-zag join. The blanket is finished with Crab stitch edging to match the zig-zag seams.
