Crochet Mood Blanket 2014 - November Square by Pukado
Wow! November! Square number 11! Can you believe how fast this year is going?? I’m horribly behind on my squares, I need to do half of September and 6 of October and all the joining! But I will get there, I promise! I’m just busy with life and other projects at the moment.
Again, I used stylecraft DK and hook size 4.5mm for my mood blanket.
For the multi colored one I used Catania cotton and hook size 3.5mm.
I get a lot of questions about the colour choices from Catania Cotton.
These are the colours I use the most in my projects:
Unfinished stitch is where you leave the last loop on hook.
UnfTDC - Unfinished Triple Double Crochet, YO 3 times
UnfTR - Unfinished Triple Crochet, YO 2 times
UnfDC - HalfDC or Unfinished Double Crochet, YO 1 time
R3, CH5, UnfTR in next st in back loop only, UnfDC in next st in back loop only, UnfDC in next st in front loop only, UnfTR in next st in front loop only, UnfTDC in next st in front loop only, YO and pull through all loops on hook, *CH6, Count back 3 st (stitch behind second UnfDC) UnfTDC in st in back loop only, UnfTR in next st in back loop only, UnfDC in next st in back loop only, UnfDC in next st in front loop only, UnfTR in next st in front loop only, UnfTDC in next st in front loop only, YO and pull through all loops on hook* repeat until end (you will work the last petal in the last 3st and in the first 3st from the start), SLST to first CH of first CH6.
R4, *3SC in next CH6Space, CH2, 3SC in same CH5Space, CH2* repeat around
R5, (If working in 1 color: R4 ended just after the first CH2Space on the side, so that’s where I pick up again, by starting in the last CH2 you made. If working with a new color: SLST to random CH2Space), 3DC in CH2Space, 6DC in next CH2Space, *(6DC, CH2, 6DC) in neaxt CH2Space, 6DC in next 2 CH2Spaces* repeat around, last series you will add 3DC to first CH2Space to complete the series. Do not fasten off, you will continue R6 in same color.
R6, *CH3, SC on top of the next shell, CH3, SC on top of the next shell, CH3, SLST in corner CH2Space, CH3, SLST in same corner space, CH3, SC on top of the next shell, CH3, SC on top of next shell* repeat around
R7, SLST into next CH3Space, CH2, 3HDC in same CH3Space, *4HDC in each of next CH3Spaces until you reach a corner, 2HDC, CH2, 2HDC in corner space* repeat all around, SLST to first HDC.
Fasten off with invisible join, weave in all ends.
