The Cherry Bakewell Crochet Blanket - Chapter Two

Updated: Jul 25, 2023

* Please be aware that the images may contain a different colour way to the original. Each row will have the original, substitute and the alternative colour way listed.

****Update:- Row 14. I made a little bit of a boo boo. The corners are incorrect! And should read = 1dc, ch3, 1dc ***

I can't believe two weeks and some more have passed! How have you got on? I know some of your said you've had to slow the video down, so I've tried super hard to slow down. In this chapter, I've made sure we have bite size videos to help support you making this crochet blanket and all its stitches. So that you can work at a slower pace, some of the sections wont require videos, but if you think you need a video we're than happy to create the bite size versions.
