Seaside Stash Busting Blanket – Week 9

And this week we’re going for shells! 🙂 This is ‘Large Shell Stitch’ and I’m really excited about these rows because there just had to be sea shells at some point in  a ‘Seaside Stash Busting Blanket’! I love beachcombing… usually I’m on the look out for sea glass or driftwood but finding pretty shells amongst the pebbles is lovely too! 🙂

This project continues to be such a wonderful shared experience and I know so many of you are enjoying it as much as me! Here’s the weeks round-up from Instagram

And I have to give an extra special mention to Katia and Carla- my lovely sister-in-law and niece! They are both taking part in my ‘Crochet- Along’ and at a family gathering at the weekend they were able to show me their blankets… it was so exciting to see their progress! They are both new to crochet and learning so much….my niece (whose blanket is on the right) is only 13! 🙂 🙂

So onto this weeks rows…

I have done a YouTube tutorial for those who may find it helpful…

Remember I use UK terminology and tch= turning chain, dtr= double treble (US treble), dc= double crochet (US single crochet)

At the end of Row 34 you should have joined with a new colour and made 4ch which counts as the first dtr of this next row…

I get excited every Monday and Friday to see what you have in store for us and I am really enjoying looking at the other blankets….I can only imagine you must be even more joyous 😊
