~ Candy drops ~
I finally finished this little blankie last night. I don't know what's been going on lately, but my crocheting has slowed down considerably. That's really strange for me, but I'm sure it'll pick back up again soon.
This blankie is crocheted with discontinued Red Heart Sparkling and Red Heart Jeweltones yarns. Both yarns are 4-ply worsted weight acrylics with sparklies. I used a 'J' hook and it measures 27" x 32".
The little motifs are just 3 rounds of dc:
~~The ch 2's do not count as a st.~~
Rnd 1: Ch 3, 12 dc in 3rd ch from hook. Join with a sl st to 1st dc. (12 dc)
Rnd 3: Ch 2, 2 dc in 1st dc, dc in next dc. *2 dc in next dc, dc in next dc. Repeat from * around. Join as before. End off.
For the joining border, I used white and the flat braid method. The link to that is here:
You'll have to watch all 4 videos.
The 1st sc rnd will be an increase rnd with 2 sc in 1st dc, sc in the next 2 dc, 2 sc in the next dc - and so on. Then you will follow with the connecting chain method. The circles are connected by 4 loops on each side.
For the little fill-in squares: I used white and they are the beginning of a granny square, then a round of sc with the corners being (sc, ch 1, sc to the blanket, ch 1, sc) as I go.
