Sunshine and Crochet

Goodness, it has been so hot this week! We did not quite hit 40 in North East England but I think we got to around 38 and that was way too hot to be crocheting – I could barely hold the hook comfortably. Fortunately that was just the one day, and I was still able to take part in the Christmas in July event with my Easy Cable book cover and work on the next sun-inspired round of the 2022 Blanket. We even had time to pick our crop of red currants that feature in this week’s pics but will soon become jam or jelly.

Stay cool everyone!

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
