Happy Halloween! I hope you are all enjoying this spooky time of the year:) This post is a little late as I spent the weekend visiting my sister and brother in law and working on my first every pumpkin carving – mine is the simple cat one. I have also been work on the cats protection charity felting. You can see my progress below, and if you want to support cats through your craft this winter, check out the wonderful kits. 10 gbp from each kit goes to the cats.
This week, we are adding a little texture in duck egg blue.
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
Bphtr – back post half treble
Ch – chain
Htr – half treble
Ss – slip stitch
