People will keep having babies! Not that I mind; it’s given me an excuse to crochet something nice in this super soft 4 ply cotton. It’s in lovely soft colours, too. I spent ages working out how I wanted the block to look, but here’s the final version, pressed flat.
Getting the stitches to line up, instead of being slightly offset, is rather more time-consuming than ideal, but necessary if you want the the holes to emerge in a straight line, forming a kind of star. You have to insert the crochet hook right in the centre of the stitch, rather than in the gap between stitches, which would be so much easier. So I’m thinking this will take a lot longer to complete than originally planned.
I’ve made five; only an estimated 30 or so to go! Joined together, they’ll form a blanket to wrap my brand new baby cousin in.
Do you know, I don’t think I’ve made crochet squares since I was little, and learning to crochet.
