Autumn is the air! And what better way to celebrate than a C2C Crochet Along based on gardening, harvesting and allotments. This beautiful afghan is made of specially designed C2C squares on the topic of gardening by a variety of designers (also including me).

And of course work is continuing on our 2022 crochet blanket. I have really enjoyed adding this round of extra petals and hope that you do too.
This week, we are adding another outer circle of petals to our dahlias in a lighter pink.

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
3trcl – 3 treble cluster
Start crocheting here:
Round 27: (dc, ch 2, dc) in corner ch-2-sp, 6 dc, skip 1, * (ch 1, 3trcluster, ch1, 3trcluster) in ch-1-sp between clusters from round 26, ch 1, skip 1, 3trcluster in ch-1-sp, ch 1, skip 1, 3trcluster in ch-1-sp, skip 1, (ch 1, 3trcluster, ch1, 3tr cluster) in ch-1-sp between clusters from round 26, skip 3. Repeat from * until end. If you still have some stitches remaining at the end, you can simply work them with dc. Repeat 4 times. Fasten off.
