Crochet Blanket

 After a JOLLY GOOD SORT OUT, I've been given a few odd bits of wool.  Look at those lovely colours! They have been calling out to me to make something,



  so I made a start . . .











and before I knew it, those scraps had turned into this




You just crochet a chain of 6 stitches and slipstitch together to make a ring

1st row Chain 2 and then dc (double crochet) into the centre of the ring 15 times and  slip stitch to the Chain 2 at beginning of the row

2nd row Change colour. Chain 3 then tr (triple crochet) into the next 3 stitches of previous row, Chain 2, tr into next 4 stitches, Chain 2, tr into next 4 stitches, Chain 2 tr into next 4 stitches Chain 2 and slipstitch to join to the Chain 3 at the beginning of the row.

3rd row Change colour.  Chain 4 into a Chain 2 space from the previous row, dc twice into the same space and then dc into next 4 stitches till you get to the next 2 chain space from the previous row, where you will 2dc 2 chain and 2dc.  dc into next 4 stitches, 2dc 2 chain and 2dc in 2 chain space as before until row is completed, ending with a  slipstitch to the initial chain 4 of the row.

Simples!


Well it all sounds like gobbledigook to me!  However magically these squares appear.  There are loads of crochet patterns and youtube video tutorials on the internet. Just have a go! That's how I have learnt, am still learning.

Eventually when I've made a load of squares, I'll join them all together but this will be ongoing for a while yet.


Anyway, meantime . . . .


The sun has got it's hat on, hip hip hip hooray!

Finally!
