So here is the next bit of the crochet along!
I think last time I had finished the chevron stripe pattern, so after that section I have added rows of sc in 3 colours.
Starting with the right side facing, I have done 1row of sc in dark blue, then turned and gone back, so ending up with a double row of sc. Then I've repeated this in pale pink, and mid blue.
4dc cluster pattern
Next, I have done a row of 4dc clusters, with 3 sts skipped between them (this keeps the stitch count even overall). The first cluster is made of 3chs and 1dc, then the rest are 4dcs.
Next, a row of sc in lime.
Next, another row of 4dc clusters in blue.
Next, a double row of sc in green ( 1 row, turn, second row)
Next I am setting up for my bobble row with 1 row of dcs in pale blue.
The middle row of the bobble section is where you do the bobbles .
There is a great tutorial over at Tales from Cuckoo Land here that shows you exactly how to do the bobbles in another colour, which is how I learnt how to do it, have a look over there to find out how to do this part.
Then I did another row of dcs in pale blue to finish off this bit.
Next another double row of sc in green.
(I am going to call this next 3 rows Outlined Cluster Pattern in future)
Next, one row of sc in red.
Next, one row of 4tr clusters in turquoise, made the same way as the 4dc clusters, but with trs instead.
Next row, ch1(counts as 1st st), 1sc in next stitch, then 2trtog into centre skipped st of the first row of sc in red, *then 3sc across top of cluster sts, then 2trtog into centre skipped st of first row of sc in red*, and repeat to end of row. (hope that's not too confusing!)
Next, I row of hdc in blue.
Okay that's where I'm up to at the moment, I am pretty happy with how it is working out, I have decided not to use any white in this blanket, so I hope the colours keep looking good together.
I am going to try and work a bit of Catherine Wheel pattern in soon, so hope that works out ok, then it might be time for some repeating of the chevron stripe and granny stripes, I'll have to wait and see!
How are you going with this blanket?
Still having fun?
Getting frustrated with my slow posting? (Sorry!)
Are you doing your own bit of winging it crochet?
Have a great day, and happy hooking!
