Sunshine and Vaccinations

Wow, it has been an absolute scorcher this week in my part of the world. So much so I took my blanket out into the garden for a little sunbathing. At the moment, I am constantly surprized at how big the blanket has grown! It will be great in the winter to look back at the blanket out in the sun, while I curl up under it. 

It has also been a little bit of a slow week for me. I was very lucky to get my second covid vaccine and I was rather tired afterwards while my body built up the necessary antibodies. A small price to pay for being able to live normally again soon. Anyway that meant that I am little behind with my granny square month squares, but I am planning to have a couple of long crochet session to get caught up soon. I can barely wait to get cracking!

Pattern notes

The pattern is written using UK terminology, for a conversion chart to US terminology click this link

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
