Double treble trouble

Another stitch I learnt on holiday was double treble. Again from the wonderful Doring Kindersley “a little course in crochet”. I cannot recommend this book highly enough if like me you are just starting to crochet.
A delivery from the brought Lily “sugar’ncream” cotton yarn in faded denim. Sweet.
Inspired by the blue seas and crashing waves of Donegal I used double treble stitch to make a boyish blanket. The variegated tones worked really well with this wavey type stitch, though be warned it uses up a heck of a lot of yarn. So much so that I have used all 6 balls and now need to find matching weight and colour of yarn for a plain border. Good luck with that says the lady in Jeans Wool Shop in Belfast.
I have checked the wool warehouse site and after one more foray to another wool shop I may well have to order a matching shade “blind” off the internet.
Double treble is not hard to learn, and makes a nice textured piece.
