Warming up with a faded flag
It’s starting to get cold outside and that means cuddling up on the couch with a cosy blanket. And for a double-dose of warmth, I like to crochet one blanket whilst cuddled under another.
I chose to use the three large spools of basic wool for my new project since they are all the same weight and will look nice together.
I kind of think that they look like faded flag colours. What do you think?
Oh! And if you want to crochet along with me, here’s the pattern I’m using:
- Start with Ch 108 (I’m doubling mine, using hook size ‘N’/9mm) then:
- Row 1: 2 dc in 3dr ch from hook, *skip 2 ch, 1 sc and 2 dc in next ch; rep from * across, ending with skip 2 ch, 1 sc ch in last ch. Ch 2, turn.
- Row 2: 2 dc in first sc, *skip 2 dc, 1 sc and 2 dc in next sc; rep from * across, ending with 1 sc in top of t-ch. Ch 2, turn. Rep Row 2 for pat.
Anyhow, I’m sure you’ll get to see the project as I progress and again when I finish. My hope is to finish it before Christmas. Wish me luck!
