Have you ever seen those big crochet blankets that have a pixelized picture of something on it and wondered to yourself “How the heck did they do that!?”
Well, you’re about to learn how the heck to do it yourself!
Let’s start by grabbing our favorite H (5mm) hook and some yarn, and maybe some coffee….
Start by chaining 6, and then in the 4th chain from your hook, make a double crochet. Double crochet in the next 2 chains as well. This is your first “row”.
Chain 6, and then flip your work over, and then slst into the space from chaining. Chain 3 and then 3 double crochet into the same space. That’s the end of the second “row”.
See? This is pretty easy! Continue doing rows like this, adding more and more of the clusters with each row. Once you have 6 rows you can start working on the decrease. Start by chaining 3, flipping your work over, and then slip stitching into the chain 3 space. Then you’re going to chain 3, and then work 3 double crochets into the same space, and continue across.
Once you’re done you can cut the yarn and tie off the ends. Don’t forget to keep your squares so you can make the afghan at the end of this series!
