Part 45 of the 2021 Blanket is coming to you a little later than usual. I was away in beautiful East Anglia over the weekend and had planned to post ahead of time, but work and other events conspired against me. But now after a lovely long weekend visiting family, I can finally write up week 45. Apologies for the delay.
The photo here is a little snap from the weekend of the thatched church with a round tower at Herringfleet. We visited it as we started our journey back up north and thought it was far too interesting to drive past without stopping. It reminded me a little of the Swedish word “bila”, which means driving around and stopping at sites.
This week, we start working in the round again to start putting the final details in place on this blanket.
Tapestry needle and sharp scissors

The blanket is worked in the round. You do not need to turn your work after each row and you continue working in the same direction as before.
[Stitches written in brackets like this are all worked into the same stitch.]
For the first stitch on each row: Chain 1 to move up to the next round if the round starts with double crochet. Chain 2 if the round starts with a half treble crochet, and chain 3 if the round starts with a treble crochet. These chains count as the first stitch in the row
Ch – chain
Dc – double crochet
Start crocheting here:
You will now work in the round again.
Round 1: Start in any corner space, [2dc, ch 2, 2dc], 1 dc in every stitch and ch-sp. 4 times. Fasten off.
