Happy belated bonfire night! Unfortunately, we didn’t have a public display in my town this year, although I think my neighbours made up for that with all fireworks in the sky last last;) I did let in inspire me to this week’s rounds of the 2022 blanket, in that the pattern tries to replicate the explosions fanning out the sky. It has also been a week in which I stated properly thinking about Christmas and designing some Christmas cards and working on the Cats’ Protection felting project. I think it is turning into a rather good likeness of Trixie – all it needs now is the angel wings before it can go on top of the Christmas tree:) If you want to join in the fun and raise money for cats in need check out the link.
This week, we are adding two rounds in yellow to represent fire works.
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
Tr – treble
Ss – slip stitch
3trtog – Work 3 treble crochet together
Start crocheting here:
Use butter milk
(tr, ch 3, tr) in ch-3-sp, tr, ch 1, *3trtog, ch 2. Repeat from * across, the final repeat should only be ch 1, then a final tr before the corner. 4 times.
