After finishing the “sky” for the tulips last week, it is time to start something new and we are laying the basis for that this week.
I have also been laying the bases for new things this week in the garden. I have been planting up some Alpine flowers as well as setting off some vegetable seeds, including artichokes, which are said to have a beautiful flower as well as being a tasty treat. I just hope they come – if only gardening gave me such reliable results as crocheting….
This week, we are working around the “sky” and setting up for the next part of the pattern..
Tapestry needle and sharp scissors

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
Bptr – back post treble
Ch – chain
Htr – Half treble
Start crocheting here:
Use Powder Pink.
Start in any ch-2-corner. (htr, ch 2, htr) into ch-2-sp, and then bptr across. 4 times.
