Join me in an exercise in calm as you make the simple, yet effective Beneath the Surface Crochet Blanket. This is a project perfect for the adventurous beginner, with only the simplest of stitches used to make the solid base of the blanket.
After the squares are made, surface crochet is added in a contrasting colour to make the circles and squares on top. You'll be able to succeed as there are videos for every pattern, the surface crochet and the joining. You won't put a stitch wrong. As an added bonus, charts for all patterns are included.
Available in UK term.
If you can crochet a traditional granny square, you have all the skills you need to tackle Beneath the Surface. Not only is there plenty of help in the book, there are also links to video tutorials of every pattern.
The blanket is 164 cm square (64") and to make it you'll need Bendigo Woollen Mills 8 ply cotton (2.43 metres per gram) or equivalent.
