As I mentioned in a previous post, my Charlotte's Dream crochet blanket is all finished and being used. I had envisioned taking it to one of our parks weeks ago and photographing it amongst the beautiful colours of the fallen Autumn leaves. Unfortunately whenever I had a chance to do this, it was either raining or it had rained the day before and everything was wet and muddy.....soooo, over the weekend I photographed it, in use, in our house, instead.
I started my first square back in October and had the blanket finished early April, just in time for the beginning of the colder weather.
HERE, HERE and HERE which give you all the links and vital information regarding the designer, the pattern and the yarn/hook I used etc.
In this post I did want to talk about the construction of the blanket.
The squares were joined with another new-to-me technique of crocheting rather than slipstitching them together. It creates a small ridge on the wrong side of the blanket but I love the pretty flat join it makes on the right side. I did enjoy joining this way and it made the whole process quicker and easier.
Until then, I'm going to enjoy my Charlotte's Dream blanket, whenever I can and take advantage of a few quiet minutes, snuggled underneath it's warmth, reading a good book and admiring all the hard work and love that went into making this beauty ♥
