February is Here

Wow, time appears to be going faster and faster. I cannot believe that we are in February already! And although the weather is still cold and blowy, the evenings are getting lighter and some early spring flowers are already in bloom. It certainly feels as if the year is on the turn.

And we are already on week 5 of the 2022 crochet blanket. We are now working in the square, and are starting to work the base of the check pattern.  I am also enjoying working the same rounds 4 times as I go round, I guess there is a joy of committing a pattern to heart and working it while watching something good on TV (It’s the winter Olympics on my TV atm).

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
