Oh yes it is! Although I have been doing Christmas crochet since the summer, I know that it is starting to get close to Christmas when I start doing other Christmas crafts. I have been making some Christmas cards this year and cooking up some festive chutneys in the past week or so. I do love this busy time of year and all the little crafts that we make. But I have still had time to add the penultimate round to the 2021 crochet blanket. And although it is a very simple round, the blanket is by now such as size that it takes rather a while to get round all the way. I can barely wait until the blanket is fully finished and I can enjoy snuggling under it.
A simple round in Orchid to make the dark blue really stand out.

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
Start crocheting here:
