Crochet Along Update #9


I have been making some headway with the mixed stripe crochet along blanket, so here is the next bit!

After the red dc cluster row and the dark blue row of sc,

1 row of 4dc clusters in spearmint, ( 3 stitches between each cluster),

then, 1 row sc in dark blue across top of clusters,,  (every 4th sc in gap between clusters),

then, skinny stripes, 5 rows of sc, all done on the right side, alternating between pale pink and sky blue, 

then, a zig zag section in light aqua and flamingo, 

then, 2 rows sc in mid blue, (up and back),

then, 2 rows sc in green, (up and back),

then, a section of outlined clusters in pale blue and celery, 

then, 2 rows sc in dark pink .

That's where I am up to at the moment.

I thought I would show you a couple of pictures of the blanket at the minute, so you can see what it's looking like all together, (very busy!!) it is starting to get nice and big!  
I am over half way now, so the end is in sight!  
I know a lot of you have already gone ahead and finished your blankets, (well done!) but I am still going to complete this project, I'm just a bit slower than you guys!  
I am lacking a bit of self discipline and let myself get side tracked by other ideas that just have to be made right now!

Anyway, have a great day and happy hooking!


  1. Love your blanket, it´s really beautiful!!

  2. It is gorgeous. I am so glad you have a page dedicated to this blanket because I am going to start mine! Thanks so much you are so very talented

  3. Wonderfully creative work. And with so many stitches it is no wonder you have to have other things on the o at the same time. But,I think by doing that you will still love it at the end of your journey

  4. That is looking good, so bright and colourful. And what a good idea, no boredom setting in with selecting something new for each stripe.
