Week 12 is coming to you a little early because I have a busy weekend coming up and wanted you to have the next part in good time. It is Mothering Sunday in the UK this weekend (don’t panic rest of the world, I think you celebrate your mothers in May, so you haven’t missed it!) and we are having both my parents and my partners parents over for a nice family meal on Sunday, and hot on the heals of that is a family birthday. It’s going to be an all-round busy weekend with lots of chats and catching-up and maybe not so much time for crochet. That is why I got the rounds for week 12 written up in advance, just scroll down to get to the pattern.
This week, we are squaring off around the flower.

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
Htr – half treble
