dear diary,

We have come to the end of our ‘homely blanket’ crochet along, well almost. Today I give you the last square, number 35 to do, and then all you have to do is crochet all of the squares together.

So far I have crochet about half of my squares together…

homely blanket as at Oct 2013

…as you can see I have used cream coloured DK yarn and I am crocheting together using simple double crochet. I might need to do a few ‘filler’ squares at the end if there are gaps, but that should be easy enough. I would just make some simple small granny squares for that. As for the border…I am not sure yet. I am going to try a few different options and will let you know my decision and let you have the pattern, in case you want to do the same.

As I am away over Christmas I am crocheting my squares together when I get back, ready for the big ‘TahDah’ moment on New Years Day, so watch out for that!

But now, without further ado…square 35 – A Christmas Star…
