The funny thing about being a crochet designer is that I am often crocheting the seasons out of sync with the real seasons in order to be able to provide the patterns to you in good time. I was reminded of this during the week, when Golden Foot the Penguin, which I had designed around this time last year Simply Crochet, was returned to me. I am currently writing up the pattern so that those of you who don’t subscribe to Simply Crochet may make your own Golden Foot. The photo shows him nestling in the 2021 crochet blanket, which I expect I will find him in again when the time comes to hang up our Christmas decorations.
This week, I have ”squared off” the last phase of the blanket, ready to start something new and hopefully exciting next week.
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
