Heart of Friendship Crochet A-Long
You can find the main post, with all the story behind it HERE
“If you’re alone, I’ll be your shadow.
If you want to cry, I’ll be your shoulder.
If you want a hug, I’ll be your pillow.
If you need to be happy, I’ll be your smile..
But anytime you need a friend, I’ll just be me.”

♥ What will you need?
You may use any yarn and hook size that you like to work with.
For both of my blankets, I used 6 colours, you may use as many or as few colours as you like.
The colour per round lists are numbered colour 1 to colour 6, all you need do is number your colours and follow the list.
Here are some colour ideas.
1. White, 2. Silver, 3. Graphite, 4. Candyfloss, 5. Fondant, 6. Bright Pink.
Using a 4mm hook, you will need approx. 3 x 100g balls in each colour, 885 m/966yds of each colour, a total of 5310m/5796yds, you will have plenty left over!
Finished size with 4mm hook, Double knitting [8 ply] yarn approx. 60 inches/5 feet square/152 cm
Using a 5mm hook you will need approx. 3 x 170g balls in each colour, 864 m/945yds of each colour, a total of 5184m/5670yds.
Finished size with 5mm hook, Worsted, Aran, [10 ply] yarn approx. 76 inches/6 feet, 4 inches square/193 cm
Please note the Caron Simply soft colour Passion is discontinued, I suggest Plum Perfect as an alternative and have included that in the photo and the colour lists.
Have fun with colour, in my Facebook group Helen’s Hookaholics you will find a huge album of colour boards, to give you lots of other ideas for different colour ways.
You may also like to take a look at some of my posts about colour, to give you more ideas.
A little idea for you…. take a look at the Heart of Friendship post, link is above, that will give you an idea of how the colour placement works, you can then decide which of your own colours you want to use, or look at the projects on Ravelry to give you ideas from the colours others have used.
