This week I wanted to mark that I am releasing part 13 of the 2021 blanket on Easter Sunday by creating a new stitch: the daffodil stitch. Crocheted by making horizontal petals using dtrs and chain in Sunshine (the paler yellow) and then trumpets made by working 6 dtrs in Gold into the center of the of petals. I had so much fun crocheting this stitch as it is so seasonal and I have been able to look at the daffs outside my window as I work.
Hope you also enjoy this stitch!
Just two rounds this week, but they form basis of the daffodil stitch. Why not also try this stitch for other blankets?
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
Dtr – double treble
Htr – half treble
Tr – treble
Ss – slip stitch
