It;s sweet and beautiful, unfortunately, the picture is not so clearly.

Or simply award it to yourself for being the kind of lovely person who makes squares for woolly hug blankets thanks

It's a motif, for stitching onto a plain square smile

You could make a plain one and do it yourself, or send as is for attaching to someone elses.

Or make lots and attach together with a chain for Christmas decorations...

Thats not actually terribly important as long as you get the picot in the right place to make a point

It took me a couple of goes to work out that i was doing the next dc in the same st as the picot, giving me 2 on the up and 3 on the down!

Jules my first attempt had too many stitches and I couldn't figure out why. I had to start again to fix it.

And Joyful, that looks great!

Thanks Pidj! Not that I can seem to fathom the last part I seem to have more than the amount if stitches I should have e.g. More than the two either side and top one... no idea how I managed that!!

Wrap the yarn round the hook two times, so there are three loops

Poke it through

Wrap the yarn round again

Pull it back through

You have five loops on your hook

Yarn over, back through two loops (like on a normal treble)

Yarn over, back through two more loops

Yarn over, back through the last two loops

I'm a stubborn cow grin

In the loop you made in the previous round, work

A double crochet

Then a treble crochet

Then an extended treble crochet - yaon over twice, through, yarn over, back, yarn over, through two loops, yarn over, through two loops, yarn over and through the remaining two loops

Then another treble

Then another double

By this time you'll have pretty much run out of loop, so do a double crochet in the next stitch.

Mud or crystal??

Hilda, that's the kind of thingweneed to know! [tha

Hi PP, no it doesn't! The 'blankets' bit is just a black screen with an icon which makes it look like it's loading but isn't. When you view the blankets from the drop down, some of them come up but not all, and they load very slowly, plus it's not possibly to scroll down to see all the recipients' names.

I'm on a fairly new mac, so it's not that it isn't capable. Sorry, don't mean to put you to any trouble, and I can always view on oh's firefox browser.
