Double Crochet Blanket Without Flipping

Started basket weaving ends into seven stitches 
Left hand corner is the wrong side
This is one of the two twin size rainbow stripe blankets I'm making.  Instead of flipping my work for each row I'm getting a more uniform right side and wrong side.  To do this I chained then did row one the normal way.  For row two I ch3 skipped a space then DC between each stitch adding one stitch into the top of the last stitch.  Row three is ch3 with DC in between every stitch.  And repeat.

Basicly each row that skips one on the left adds one on the right and every row that adds one on the left just goes between only.  It's easier than it sounds. 

If you decide to try this technique I would suggest you do a sample square first to get comfortable.  You could also use stitch markers to distinguish which row is which as I did for my first project like this.

Happy crocheting!
