Backing the daffodils

After the excitement of the daffodil stitch last week, this week needed a some background stitches to make them pop out.

That has also been been the motto of my general crochet this week: I am working on a couple of exciting projects in the background that will be released over summer. I have a special note book that I write all my ideas in and the first copies of the patterns and it has barely left my side this week. And since some of my projects are to be kept strictly under wraps until release, my book is all I can show you (but at least it is a pretty book).

This week has been about working the stitches behind last week’s daffodil stitch  with a full three rows in Ocean and using front post trebles to embellish the corners.

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
