Thursday Morning Crochet Alongs

February 01, 2024

It's almost a year since we started the "Coronation Keepsake Blanket Crochet Along" and the group is still going strong.  Since that first blanket we have worked on the King Cole "Rooms with a View" project followed by West Yorkshire Spinners' "Lapland Blanket".

Now we are embarking on "Fruit Garden" by Jane Crowfoot (free pattern on the Stylecraft website).  Here's what I achieved today:

And here's a view of the full blanket:

Fruit Garden Blanket by Jane Crowfoot and Stylecraft

Given that we've made so many blankets over the last 11 months, it's not certain that we'll all actually make a blanket, but the motifs are so beautiful and so versatile we're diving in anyway.  I'm hoping I'll make a lap blanket or maybe a wallhanging.  Others I know want to make a tote bag.  The beauty of this design is that you can make it into whatever you desire.

The Crochet Along group meets every Thursday from 10:30am to 12:30pm.  Cost is £3 to cover tea and coffee and heating.  There's just one rule: you have to work on crochet (we have general Craft and Chatters on Fridays - see our home page).  We'd love to have you join us. It's a wonderfully supportive group, with us all helping each other through the ups and downs of the process.
