It’s week 4 of my summer blanket crochet along and I’m starting to feel quite excited about seeing it finished now the pile of squares has grown to 16. If you are looking for the previous weeks’ charts then you can find them here: Week 1, Week 2 & Week 3.
This week I have made a caravan, a happy face wearing sunglasses, an ice-lolly and a bee. The bee has turned out to be one of my favourites despite me not being sure about it when it was a just a chart. Sometimes it’s hard to imagine what it will look like in real life and there have been quite a few, including the caravan and face that I’ve had to redo after tweaking the design.
So my notes, I add these to every post just for anyone new coming on..
I am using acrylic DK yarn with a 3.5 mm hook but you can use any thickness of yarn you like (and the hook to match). Also you can use cotton or any other type of yarn you prefer. Obviously the thicker the yarn, the larger the square will be.
Like I always say, if you don’t want to make a blanket then any of these charts can be used for smaller projects like wall hangings or cushion covers. Or someone tagged me in a post on Instagram this week of some dishcloths they had made using these charts, great idea!
I wrote this last week but if you really don’t like one of the designs then you can always duplicate a few you do like, maybe in different colours so they still look a bit different.

So the caravan.. there is actually a slight difference between this one and the chart for you to download, it was my second time making it but I still wasn’t happy with the wheel so I’ve made it a little bit smaller. I’m going to keep mine like this but I think the smaller one is much better.
The sunglasses.. obviously with this one you can use a skin and hair colour to best suit yourself or whoever you are making the blanket for.
Ice-lolly… this one is mega simple.
