Hi everyone; my second, baby boy option, blanket is now decided upon. I wanted a blanket covered in 5-point stars, made up of hexagon motifs similarly to my baby girls puffed daisy blanket. This wasn’t the most straightforward project to design, and I have to admit that I don’t think I could just write the pattern down in a way that most people would be able to understand easily, so a comprehensive photographic tutorial is essential for this project. I would have loved to have made a video tutorial for you, but with only 1 pair of hands I’m afraid it is beyond me! (I suddenly feel the need for a large rubber band to hold my camera to my forehead! I joke, but part of me thinks I may just try it!!! But not today…) It is quite easy to work, once you are familiar with the pattern and where the stitches are placed. (I surely hope)….
I made this motif with dk yarn and a size 4.00 mm hook. I use american crochet terms.
Abbreviations; ch – chain, st/s – stitch/es, dc – double crochet, sl st – slip stitch, tr – treble crochet.
Join with a sl st to form a loop.
So, work 1 treble into the back loop of the right stitch indicated above.
We will be forming the hexagon with this round.
Ch 3 (counts as 1st dc); work 8 dc, (1 dc, ch 2, 1 dc) in next st.
Join to ch 3 with a sl st. Fasten off.
