This week, we are just crocheting some very plain rounds. This suits me just fine as I have been feeling a bit under the weather (also why this post is coming on a Monday evening). But just working dcs in the round definitely has a soothing effect on you when you feel like your brain can’t cope with much counting.
In other news, my felted cat got its wings and is ready to go on the Christmas tree, provided Trixie doesn’t pull it down again, like the last two years 🙂 If you want to make a cat tree topper and help cats in need, you can also get your kit at Cats’ Protection.
This week, we are working three rounds of dc. Very simple!
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
Dc – double crochet
Ss – slip stitch
