There is something big in the pipeline and this photo is a big clue. The 2021 Granny Square month CAL is starting on the first of July and I have been lucky enough to contribute a square! The blanket looks absolutely gorgeous and I am so excited to start making one square a day for a month:) All the square patterns will be available for free on the Hobbycraft website. By clicking the link, you will get all details.
And in the midst of the excitement, I have still managed to add an extra round to 2021 blanket. Once again, it is the beginning of something – this time, I hope that the stitches will form the basis of flowers.
This week, we are starting to make flowers by breaking up the dcs with several trebles into a single stitch to form the base.
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
Bphtr – back post half treble
Ch – chain
Fpdc – front post double treble
Htr – half treble
Mc – magic circle
Tr – treble
Ss – slip stitch
3trcl – 3 treble cluster
5trcl – 5 treble cluster
