The Easter Weekend is upon us… and it really is one of my favourite times of the year!
We were in Northern Spain for Easter last year which I wrote a blog post about here and I took this photo of my crocheted Mini Easter Hanging Baskets – it was such a beautiful place to visit! The free pattern for those little baskets is still available here 🙂
Well this year we’re staying home for Easter and I’m looking forward to a long weekend with quality family time and of course some crochet!
So onto week 11 of our blanket and here’s a round up of this weeks blankets from Instagram
I’ve also set up a Facebook Group page Coastal Crochet CAL if any of you are interested in sharing progress there if you’re not on Instagram… 🙂
This week, as I’m sure many of you may have guessed, we’re continuing with the Long Wave Stitch we started last week and these rows are a repeat of Rows 16 – 19. At the end of Row 42 you should have made 1ch which counts as the first dc (US sc) of this next row… Remember I use UK terminology!
Row 43 1htr in next 2 sts, continue with (2tr, 3dtr, 2tr, 2htr, 3dc, 2htr) and repeat to end, the final st will be a htr, 1ch, (counts as 1st dc of next row- you may want to put a stitch marker in this ch so it is easier to recognise when crocheting back into it after next row), turn
Row 44 1dc in each st to end, join with a new colour at end of final st, 4ch (counts as first dtr of next row), turn
Row 45 1tr in next 2 sts continue with (2htr, 3dc, 2htr, 2tr, 3dtr, 2tr) and repeat to end, the final st will be a tr, 1ch (counts as 1st dc of next row- you may want to put a stitch marker in this ch so it is easier to recognise as a stitch when crocheting back into it after next row), turn
Row 46 1dc in each st to end, join with a new colour at end of final st, 1ch (counts as first dc of next row- again you may want to put a stitch marker in this ch so it is easier to recognise when crocheting back into it after next row), turn
And that’s it… 🙂
Have a fabulous Easter weekend Everyone and enjoy that crochet! 🙂 🙂

Hi Jackie Hoping the Easter Bunny was good to you and your family!!!!! My grand daughter showed me your blanket and asked me to make it for her.
Told her she would have to make one too. This is giving us me time a few rows at a time
