This week, we have been feeling very lucky that we still have electricity after storm Arwen as many people in our county still don’t. The weather here has continued to be cool and wet, although the snow now has melted. It has meant that it is hard to get good progress photos of the blanket, so the only photo from this week is the header photo. The others are a selection of my favourite stages in the course of making the blanket – I hope that is not too confusing. Hope that you are all staying warm with the next storm on the way.
This week, we are continue to frame and edge the blanket with a round of htr in Ocean.
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
Ch – chain
Htr – half treble
Start crocheting here:
