Crochet, Coffee and Cats…

A little bit of excitement this week as my article about my use of colour appeared in this month’s issue of Simply Crochet. It is so nice to be writing for one of my favourite magazines and I have always loved putting my feet up with some coffee to read about what other crocheters are up to, so I am thrilled to contribute it.

Of course Trixie could not be outdone (and also appeared in the magazine) and she has be up to her usual photobombing tricks.

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
