I have this baby blanket pattern I'd like to post, but I'm a bit wary because I'm working with really simple pattern motifs, and I've never written a pattern where I reference back to a motif, so I just want to know if what I have makes sense. If it does not make sense, any suggestions in clarifying what's happening would be great.

(FYI: There's a list of techniques and notes pre-pattern that just set up the whole thing for use that I'm not including because I don't think you need to see it to check the pattern itself.)

This is how it appears in my current draft:

Pattern Motifs
This blanket is created using two simple pattern motifs that are repeated in groups of five throughout. The motifs are as follows:

Pattern motif 1:
Row 1: (starts as ch 3, turn from previous row) dc in second stitch from hook, dc in next two stitches, bo [bobble] in fifth stitch, dc across. ch 1, turn.

Row 2: sc in every stitch across. ch 3, turn.

Pattern motif 2:
Row 1: (starts as ch 3, turn from previous row) dc in second stitch from hook, dc in next three stitches, bo [bobble] in sixth stitch, dc across. ch 1, turn.

Row 2: sc in every stitch across. ch 3, turn.

Pattern
ch 81

Row 1: Skipping chain on hook, sc in each ch across. ch 1, turn. (80 sc)

Row 2-4: sc across. ch 1, turn.

Row 5: sc across. ch 3, turn.

(Ch 3 on this and all dc rows counts as first dc for row. You will skip the first stitch and place first dc in second stitch.)

Rows 6-15: (Complete pattern motif 1) 5 times.

Rows 16-25: (Complete pattern motif 2) 5 times.

Rows 26-35: (Complete pattern motif 1) 5 times.

Rows 36-45: (Complete pattern motif 2) 5 times.

Rows 46-55: (Complete pattern motif 1) 5 times.

Rows 56-65: (Complete pattern motif 2) 5 times.

Rows 66-69: sc in each stitch across. ch 1, turn.

Row 70: sc in each stitch across, after working last stitch, fasten off and weave in ends.
