Sky Blanket – joining subsequent rows


Last night I joined the second row of my Sky Blanket. I know a lot of people are waiting with bated breath for this post which will enable them to continue with their own yo-yo blankets, so here it is!

If you haven’t already started making a nice little pile of yo-yos, you’ll find how to make them HERE.

Once you have a bunch of yo-yos ready, you’ll want to join your first row, and you’ll find how to do that HERE.

You start off your second row the same way you did with your first:

1.) With your joining colour, join with a single crochet in any stitch on the first yo-yo. (chain 3, skip next stitch, single crochet in next stitch) three times. Chain 2, skip next stitch, half double crochet in next stitch.

12.) Pick up your second yo-yo. Half double crochet in any stitch. Chain 2, skip next stitch, single crochet in next stitch. (Chain 3, skip next stitch, single crochet in next stitch) twice, Chain 2, skip next stitch, half double crochet in next stitch. Attach the rest of the yo-yos in the row in the same way. When you get to the last yo-yo in the row, do the following:

3.) Attach the last yo-yo in the row with a half double crochet in any stitch. Chain 2, miss next stitch, single crochet in next stitch. (Chain 3, skip next stitch, single crochet in next stitch) four times to go round the edge of the last yo-yo. (Chain 1, hook through the adjacent chain 3 on the first yo-yo from the previous row, and join with a chain stitch, then chain 1, skip next stitch, and single crochet into next stitch) twice. Chain 2, half double crochet in the next stitch (the same stitch into which you did the half double crochet when joining the last yo-yo to the previous one in the row).

3AContinue along the row, connecting the yo-yos from the half double crochet join of the previous yo-yo.

All subsequent rows are connected in the same way.

As you can see, I now have two rows completed in my Sky Blanket:
