2021 Crochet Blanket – Part 4

Welcome to week 4 of the 2021 crochet blanket, where we turn the circle into more of a square shape. In doing so, the phrase “square peg, round hole” kept popping into mind as I worked. It was reinforced by the fact that I was struggling to get hold of the Caron Simply Soft yarn that I am using and started me wondering whether doing a project like this in the middle of a pandemic where products become unavailable was the right idea. But I manage to get hold of a few more balls in Orchid and Sunshine, and slowly came to the realisation that maybe not having the precise colour I want when I want it will also tell the story of 2021.

Nevertheless, this was a really positive week both off and on my hook. Some of my nearest and dearest got their appointments for vaccinations and my Easy Cable Crochet Hat was released. It was a special moment as it is my first ever hat pattern! I also got the chance to work a little more on an upcoming project – the Alpine flower squares. I am really excited about these squares as I am experiment using Paintbox Cotton DK supplied by Love Crafts – another first as I have never designed using cotton yarn before.

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
