Beautiful Blogger Blanket of 2012 – Crochet Competition – Part Three
How do I help with The Beautiful Blogger Blanket of 2012? I hear you ask...
All you need to do is CROCHET ONE SQUARE!
(You may want to make more when you have read to the end of the instructions, the choice is yours!)
The rules of the square:
It MUST be made in DOUBLE KNIT 100% COTTON. This is because some bloggers or their family members are allergic to wool...so to make the blanket suitable for all, it shall be cotton. This also means that it can be washed without worrying whether some bits will shrink and some stretch......
It must be made using the APPROPRIATE HOOK for your yarn.
The square can be ANY SIZE - but maybe we need to set a few limits, so let say smallest: 5 x 5 cm, and largest: 20 x 20cm. It can also be any size in between.
The square can be ANY COLOUR OR COLOURS. I love jewel colours, but you might not... use whatever you like best to represent you.
The square can be CROCHETED using ANY PATTERN. I have put links to a few lovely ones below, but you can use your own if you want.
The Beautiful Bloggers Blanket of 2012 will not mind if you are a beginner, or an advanced crocheter.. it will not mind if the square is simple or complicated, lacy or plain... it does not judge....
Please sew all ends in!
So, 6 rules so far, more to follow tomorrow.......
