Crocheting is something I quite enjoy. It’s a quiet-time hobby. Usually, you can find me crocheting early in the morning with my morning coffee, or in the hour or two after work while I prepare dinner and wait for John.e to arrive home from work.
Outside of that, I love to bring my crocheting with me whenever we spend some time at the cottage. I started this throw the last time we spent a weekend at the cottage. It was in September, so the days were comfortable, temperature wise, but the evenings were quite cool, so relaxing inside in the rocking chair with yarn and a hook, was the perfect thing to do. Does that make me sound like a grandma? Oh well… so be it!
The one day we spent at the cottage last fall was a dreary, rainy day. I worked on this throw while John.e huddled under heavy blankets out on the screened-in porch and read his book. I think when one goes on a long weekend getaway; one rainy day out of the three days is a blessing. It helps you truly relax. What do you think?
- Start by making a magic ring.
- Chain 3 and double crochet 15 times into the ring. The chain 3 counts as 1 double crochet, so you should have a total of 16 in the ring.
- Next, to form a square shape, double crochet once into each stitch in the ring. In the fourth stitch, double crochet twice, chain 1, and double crochet again. Move onto the next stitch without chaining and with only 1 double crochet.
- Repeat this until you have crocheted all around the ring. Perform a slip stitch into the initial chain 3 the join the round.
- Continue in this pattern for 11 rounds.
- Crochet as many blocks as you want. For my throw, I crocheted 30 blocks in total before single crocheting the blocks together.
- Once done, I ended the throw with a simple double crochet stitch all the way around.
