The Cherry on the Top

I thought I would share a photo of myself this week for those of you that haven’t me yet. Here I am in the garden on Friday planting our patio cherry tree. Gardening is one of my other passions apart from crochet, and now that we finally have some sunshine, we are able to go out and plant again. We have been working on our garden for the past eight years and for nearly all that time, we have wanted a fruit tree but not been able to get a one small enough for our garden. In the end we decided on getting a patio tree that can grow in a pot. We look forward to it blossoming next year, and if it fruits, it will really be the cherry on the top. 

Again, life has influenced craft and I can’t help wondering if the bobble stitches on this round could have been inspired by the thought of home-grown cherries.

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
