Sunshine and Crochet

It was an usual week for me. Unusual because I had the week off from work, and also unusual because the sun actually shone. It meant I was able to do some crochet in the garden – one of my favourite summer things. Using the yellow yarn aptly named Sunshine was a real treat and it felt like summer had finally come. Next week is back to work, but hopefully I will be able to snatch a few lunchtimes in the garden too.

I also discovered that the 2021 Crochet Blanket is also large enough to drape over a chair. I feel like that is rather a mile stone on this project. The blanket is getting rather large now, so I am debating just doing one round a week from now on, otherwise it will be an absolute monster by December:)

This week, I have continues with the bobble theme by working a round of simple dc, followed by a round with bobbles appearing between the bobbles on round 26.

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
