Squaring Off and Crochet Plans

I got a some exciting post this week: my copy of Simply Crochet with a journal article that I wrote. As this is one of the first issues of the new year, I talked about crochet planning and stash busting: two topics we can all relate to. They even featured a headshot of me (see opposite) with the article. Although I have had several patterns published, this is only my second article, so it really did give me a thrill to see it in print. Apart from that the week was also good because I finished a WIP that had been hanging around for over a year (though it is not my oldest wip, but definitely the biggest) and I added a few more rounds to 2022 crocht 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
