Hello again! It is nice to be back after missing a week with you. Although that certainly did not mean I missed out on crocheting. I was doing a little behind the scenes work as well as having a little holiday to Staithes on the North Yorkshire coast. It is so lovely to sit at the harbour with my hook in my hand and crochet my next project. Here one of my favourite views through the lobster pots over the estuary to harbour side pub. And we were so lucky to enjoy blue skies (certainly not a given in Northern England) we really tied in with finishing off the sky of the tulip stitch.
This week, we are adding sky in Duck Egg blue to out tulips.
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
Fpdc – front post double crochet
Tr – treble
Ss – slip stitch
Start crocheting here:
Use duck egg.
Start in any ch-2-corner from round 4. (tr, ch 2,tr) into ch-2-sp. From here until the next corner you will be working in round 5. Dc, into ch-2-sp, *fpdc over the top of the tulip, 2dc into ch-2-sp. Repeat from * across. In the final ch-2-sp before the corner, you only need to add 1 dc. 4 times.
SS to corner ch-2-sp. (dc, ch2, dc). Dc across. 4 times.
