2021 Crochet Blanket - free crochet pattern - Crochet Cloudberry

Tropical Days

Wow, it has been a scorcher this week in North-East England. And I have been happily crocheting away in the sun, something made extra special because the pattern for my bobble stitch pineapple cushion cover appeared in this month’s edition of Simply Crochet. I designed and made this during January when it was dark and could outside. Now, I am making a second cushion cover as a gift for my sister and her fiancé’s new house and it is lovely to work this tropical pattern, in almost tropical temperatures. 

It is also birthday season in my family, so I have been busy making birthday cards too with my new found love of calligraphy. But don’t worry I have not forgotten the 2021 Blanket and have added another, albeit simple, round.

This week, I am keeping to my idea of just doing a round a week from now, so the blanket is not huge by December. It was just a simple round of dc in Orchid, but laying the basis for something more exciting next week.

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
