Goodness, the big freeze is coming in over the North East (England) this weekend. We had our first dusting of snow in the wake of storm Arwen and are feeling lucky that we have power as some in our county still don’t. That said the snow does make the world a pretty place and here is the view over the roof tops to Durham cathedral this morning.
We have been mainly staying in and keeping warm, which gave me a little more crochet time and a chance to finish the cute amigurumi reindeer (pattern in Inside Crochet). And of course to add another round to the 2021 blanket, which is getting way too big to be pictured – I will have to work something out to show off the final blanket in a few weeks time.
This week, we have added a round of bptr to give the frame a more 3D effect.
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
Bptr – back post treble
Ch – chain
Htr – half treble
Start crocheting here:
Start in any corner space, [htr, ch 2, htr], 1 bptr in every stitch. 4 times. Fasten off.
