Craft for the Soul
Crocheted blankets can be quite fussy, which is why I super-love this simple design. You can take this idea and choose your own colours and size to suit – a great blanket for a partner, pet or fresh baby, I think!
Skip the rst stitch. Treble once into each stitch until the end of the row.
Chain two and turn. Treble once into the back loop of each stitch in the row below. Each stitch has two loops – you only want to crochet through the back one. Do this all the way along the row, then chain two and turn.
Repeat until you have 12 rows. ey’ll be lovely and textured and neat. Go you!
Make 24 rectangles. Sew them into rows of three with neat whip- stitches. en sew these rows together, matching joins and edges neatly. Weave in any loose threads with a yarn needle.
Marvel at your gorgeous work and get cosy!
You could make this in three strips and change colour as you go – but I like the hand-sewn, patchy effect of having individual rectangles!
