I’ve been feeling very ‘Novemberish’ over the past couple of days. But I decided that that is a GOOD thing! I’ve always hated November. And January and February, come to think of it. But I found myself with a spare hour before the school run this afternoon so I filled it with some of my favorite things…
…a lit fire, a hot chocolate, crochet, something tasty to eat (NOT slimming world friendly – ooops!). And I decided I like the cosiness of November, more so because of rain and cold outside.
I’ve finished the bobble blanket and I LOVE IT! Hopefully it’ll be going to it’s new home next week.
But in case I want to make another one again I thought I’d better make a note of the pattern (taught to me by my Mum)…
chain row in multiples of 5, plus and extra 4, plus two for turning.
Row 1: triples across the whole row.
Row 2: 4 double crochets. Make 4 trebles into the next stictch then take your hook out of the stitch, insert it into the first of the 4 trebles and slip stitch it through the fourth treble (which makes the bobble). Carry on with another 4 doubles, then repeat with another bobble, then carry on like this for the rest of the row.
Row 3: Trebles all the way back again.
Row 4: Double crochets with a new colour.
Row 5: Double crochets with the old colour,
then repeat from row 2.
I hope I can make sense of that if I need the pattern again!
I’ve got the urge to paint that blue wall green. I feel a pinterest binge coming on to get some inspiration! It’d be great to get it done before Christmas.
