I have mentioned my clever friends before, and one of my friends is very good at crochet. She helped me get started on my first ripple blanket and made me lovely crafty gifts for my birthday a few weeks ago.
At our craft group this week she was working on a blanket in 3 shades of green plus cream. I was admiring the colours when I looked closer at the pattern. It was a crochet version of a log cabin quilt block! She thought she’d have a go at it and made it up. (I told you she was clever!)
She was happy for me to share the basics with you:
- 4 colours of yarn
- Basically a big granny square
- Each row has groups of 4 trebles with one chain in between
- Crochet 3 chains when you’re turning a corner
- Each section of colour is 4 rows
- When changing colours, you will need to slip stitch into the adjoining rows to join them
Note: These are not beginner’s crochet instructions. They are really for someone who has some idea of how to do granny crochet already and can look at the pictures to help them understand what these notes mean.
If you’re after basic crochet help, take at look at the collection of beginner crochet tutorials that I wrote about previously.
