A new beginning

A new beginning, well at least in the crochet world;) We are starting to work on new squares this week so we are heading right back to scratch and starting again with the magic circle:)

It feels fitting, as outside in nature, everything seems like it is beginning afresh, with snowdrops, crocuses and daffodils in flower and fresh green shoots popping up wherever I look.

I am making five of these squares for the blanket, alternatively, you could make four of these squares and five of the squares that we started with.

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
