Last week I went on an Autumn walk and collected some beautiful fallen leaves for my photos. But once the photos were taken, I couldn’t bring myself to throw them out and instead displayed them in small vase where they inspired me. Although the weather has at times been grey, I have been able to look at these pretty leaves and try to recreate them in the blanket using the dark pink shade.
This week, we are working two rounds that will resemble the pretty red and brown leaves of autumn.
Tapestry needle and sharp scissors

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
Tr – treble
2trtog – 2 trebles worked together
Start crocheting here:
