As some of you may know already, outside of crochet I work as a translator from German. I started off translating very dry legal and business texts but recently I have been translating something much more fun: craft books. Over the past year, I have immersed myself in all kinds of craft from macramé and painting to dried flower arrangement. But as publishing is a rather slow moving business, I had not yet seen my published translations until this week – an then two came through my door at once! Such a thrill to see my work all beautifully laid out. I am not entirely sure when the books will be released by you can see a sneak preview behind this weeks blanket.
And so, in celebration of twos, we are adding two rounds this week!
This week, we are adding two fairly simply rounds in shades of pink.

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 – treble crochet
