May Day

Happy First of May! I hope that those of you who get a holiday for May Day have a lovely time, filled with crochet and nice spring weather!

We have had a bit of a mixed bag of weather this week, but I was at least able to take some pics of my crochet in the garden, if not actually sit out and crochet. My tulips are putting on a wonderful display this year and they are the inspiration behind the next part of the blanket, which I can barely wait to start, but I had to work on this week’s part first. It is a real test of my patience, not just to dive right in, but I am trying to pace the amount of rounds each week, so that we don’t end up with a giant blanket:)

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
