Joining the Squares

Fancy a cuppa? In this cool retro tea set? I found it a couple of years ago in  charity shop and love enjoying a cup of coffee from it. But since I can be drinking tea or coffee all the time, I wanted to make a square based on its colours and shapes. So when  Rhondda from Oombawka Design Crochet contacted me about writing a guest blog for her, I felt it was the perfect chance to make this square. You can check out the free pattern at Oombawka Design Crochet.

Work has also continued on the 2021 blanket this week and you can find out how to join the squares to the main part of the blanket below. 

Have a great week!

Pattern notes

The pattern is written using UK terminology, for a conversion chart to US terminology click this link

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

Special stitches

Htr – half treble crochet

Ss – slip stitch

 

Before you begin, you may want to lay out the blanket with the squares positioned in the corners. (the blanket corner should touch one corner of the square). You can affix them in place with a stitch marker. Make sure when you are working that both the blanket and the square are facing up.

 

Start crocheting here:

Week 35

Row 1

Use Ocean

Use a ss to attach yarn in to ch-2-corner space of the square, then work 1 htr into ch-2-corner space of the blanket. Now work 1 htr into each stitch across the blanket. 1 htr into ch-2-corner space of the blanket and then attach to the square with a ss into the ch-2-corner space of the square. Repeat 4 times.
