Spring Blanket CAL week 10

posted in: Crochet Along | 0

Hello! It feels a bit strange writing this week as it’s technically still week 9! I’m having to write the post early, because it’s Easter holidays for week 10 so I won’t be able to write it on the Monday like I usually do. This means I haven’t seen as many photos as I normally do, but I still have a few to share!!

This week I’m introducing tulip stitch to represent all those beautiful, colourful tulips that are making an appearance now!! This is made up of several rounds- a round of trebles, a round of ‘v’ stitch (1tr, ch1,1tr) for the flower stems and a round of popcorns for the flower heads. I’m afraid I can’t share a pic of my vintage blanket this week as I haven’t done it yet, but I do have a photo of the spring brights and Debs’ blanket.
