The Simple Things

This week, we are just crocheting a few simple rounds to set off the decorative blossoms that we made over the last two weeks. 

I love the contrast of working on more ornate crochet and doing more relaxing simple stitches with minimum counting. 

This week has had a similar theme. My work as a translator has been really interesting but really busy, and then in contrast my crafting and crochet has been focussed on doing relaxing and sometimes repetitive stiches and practices.

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
