It has been a short week in Crochet Cloudberry land, after just returning home from Norfolk on Tuesday night. But still I have managed to start some Christmas crochet to have a few new decorations this year (although, it is still doubtful whether we can have a tree without Trixie bringing it down). We are still enjoying glorious Autumn weather so Christmas crochet still feels a little premature but I know how quickly it is approaching! As is the end of the year, which means I am also counting down the rounds left of the 2021 blanket. I decided that it was time to start laying down the foundations of the border.
This week, we are starting to frame the blanket and get ready for the border.

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
Start crocheting here:
