As you all know I’m working on two different blankets at the moment but I must confess I really do prefer to crochet in the round or in motifs… It’s not that I find chaining up disagreeable, just that I hate all that counting at the beginning!
What I love about Angie’s ( Sucrette) pattern is how it’s so different from the other thousands of patterns which you’ll find on the internet. Most noticeable are the beautiful double-pointed petals.
Here I’ll show you what I mean
BUT .. wth the pattern I’m using now ………..
You’ll notice the pointed star like differences… it might be subtle but not all crochet circles in squares are the same (as my hubby once said… the cheeky sew& sew)..
“Like a circle in a spiral
Like a wheel within a wheel
Never ending or beginning,
On an ever spinning wheel
As the images unwind
Like the circles that you find
In the windmills of your mind”

Pattern For Blanket … Any standard granny circle will do for the blanket in this set of pics.. just experiment or if you really want I could give you a picture tutorial of the one above.. as i did make a few tweaks to make it more original!
