Summer is here…the sky has been blue most of this week and temperatures have been slowly rising. Even here in North Wales we have 22C today…Yippee!!! and it’s suppose to last over the whole weekend and into next week.
What better time than to sit outside and work on your ‘homely blanket’ squares…
8ch, join with ss to form a ring.
Rnd 1: *6dtr, 3ch; rep. from 3 times, join with ss.
Rnd 2: *work cluster in 6dtr, 5ch, ss in 2nd of 3ch, 5ch; rep. from * 3 times, join with ss. Fasten off and join new colour on top of any cluster.
Rnd 3: *[3dtr, 1ch, 3dtr, 2ch, 3dtr, 1ch, 3dtr] in 3ch sp of rnd 1, ss on top of cluster; rep. from * 3 times, ss to join. Fasten off and join new colour in any ss on top of cluster.
Rnd 4: 6dtr in same sp, *[6dtr, 2ch, 6dtr] in next 2ch sp, **6dtrin ss on top of next cluster; rep. from * twice and from * to ** once more, join with ss. Fasten off and join new colour at same ss.
Rnd 5: *1dc in each of 6dtr, 1dc in ch sp between groups of 3dtr of rnd 3, 1dc in each of 6dtr, 3dc in corner; rep. from * 3 times, join with ss. Fasten off and join new colour at any st from prev. rnd.
Rnd 6: 3ch, work 1tr in each st around working 3tr in centre of corner dc’s, join with ss.
Fasten off and weave in ends.
Note: Cluster explained – to work a 6dtr cluster: Yarn round hook twice, work the first stitch omitting the last stage to leave 2 loops on hook. Work next 5sts in same manner resulting in 7 loops on hook. Wrap yarn over hook and pull through all 7loops to finish the cluster.
I am off to do prepare for a crochet workshop tomorrow. Wishing you all a lovely weekend full of hooky fun. xx
