I started this blanket on mat leave but my rib pain and sciatica made sitting and crocheting for long periods of time difficult. Just recently I felt rested enough to take up hobbies again and decided to finish the blanket. I really like how it looks modern and has a lot of fun texture... and Finn loves playing with it!
Using a worsted weight yarn with a 5mm or 5.5mm hook.
Using a different colour do a single crochet (sc) in each stitch around the perimeter of the blanket.
In the next row slip stitch once, in the next stitch sc, dc, sc, then slip stitch in the next stitch and sc, dc, sc, in the next. Repeat for the perimeter of the blanket. Tie off and weave in ends.
**please note, I'm not a expert crocheter, if something doesn't make sense please feel free to ask me about it!**
I love to cook, entertain, craft and create - all while being a wife, friend, daughter and a mom to a little boy.
