Indoor Crochet

Dear crochet friends, I hope that you have all come through this week relatively dry and not so windswept. The weather has definitely been a focal point in my part of the world this week and I am very glad that crochet is an indoor activity that I can do snuggled under a blanket while a storm rages outside. The weather has also given me a chance to devote some more time to learning to draw flowers, a very mindful activity that I am very much enjoying at the moment.

This week also brought the latest issue of Simply Crochet to my door. It was rather soggy as it arrived, which made me feel very sorry for our postie who was stuck outside in the rain all morning. However, it also contained a new pattern of mine: a spring tartan cushion, which I had a lot of fun making back in the autumn.

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
