I think Autumn is well and truly here now: we are still enjoying glorious sunshine during the day, but the sun is loosing its intensity and the nights are drawing in. It has given me the impulse to finally write up and publish the pumpkin pattern which you can find on this blog as a free pumpkin crochet pattern. Progress is still being made on the 2021 blanket, but this week we are only adding one row so that we can add two rows next week (any guesses what they might be?). In the meantime, I hope that you are also enjoying autumn and have lots of season projects on your hooks!
This week, we are just adding another row of blue dc to the blanket to frame the pattern in purple from last week.

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
Dc – double crochet
Start crocheting here:
With the right side of the blanket facing up, start on the left side of any corner. Attach yarn with slip stitch into the stitch that is 1 up from the top of the last row. Then, dc in to each stitch and each ch-1-sp in the row. Attach to next corner square with slip stitch. Fasten off.
