April Preemie Blanket - CAL Day 16

Morning, morning!

Hey there! How is everyone coming along today? I have a question for you all today. If you're a multitasker, what do you do while crocheting?

I love listening to music while the hooks are flying. Everything from heavy metal and rap to country, pop, 90's classics and all the way through to some good old fashion 80's rock! Lately I've been enjoying Imagine Dragons new releases. Just fantastic! Who am I kidding, all of their music is fantastic!

You will need:

4.5mm hook
DK/8ply/light worsted weight yarn in minimum of 6 colours.

Yarn Note: I did not start with complete balls. All 6 of my balls were originally 100g balls with a little of each used. They are a mix of Stylecraft Special DK, King Cole Pricewise and Moda Vera Marvel 8ply for my 6 colours. You could choose 6 colours and follow my colour changes, or you could make every line a different colour (excellent way to use scraps) or you could even use some self striping yarn, or a solid colour.

Colour Changes: I change my colours by completing the last yarn over and pull through of the last stitch in the row with the new colour for the next row, so I don't have to join with slip stitches. Of course, this means you'll have to redo that one last stitch each day as you won't know what colour is next, but the finished piece will be much neater this way.

My Colours are

A - Beige
B - Blue
C - Dark Blue
D - Tan
E - Mint/Turquoise
F - Dark Grey
