After last week’s snow, I am glad that the weather is feeling a little more seasonal and spring-like. And there are flowers and blossoms popping up everywhere, which cannot help but raise spirits. I think all the pretty buds have influenced the colour combination for this week’s weeks round: light pink and light blue, that when put together look like spring in crochet:)
I hope you enjoy the two new rounds this week 🙂
This week, we are crocheting two rounds to help keep the square shape. The dc, ch1 pattern is reminiscent of the linen stitch.
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
