With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, I could not resist crocheting a round or two of pink! Ok then pomegranate but it sure does feel seasonal.
We have also had a few cold days here so I have been enjoying cuddling up under my 2021 Blanket. It is fun to think that this time next year, I might be curled up under the granny squares that I am currently crocheting.
This week, we are adding two rounds of pomegranate.

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
Dc – double crochet
Htr – half treble
