    Love this tutorial. Just need to know how to whip stitch? Would crochet cotton thread suffice in whip Stitching?

    Mikey you are the best instructor on the Internet! I am starting this project TONIGHT. But instead I’m going to use RedHeart SuperSaver in the same colors (maybe…keeping the Pink and White, but I may substitute the Yellow with a Mint Green or Turquoise). Making for my new granddaughter who’s coming in July. 🙂

    Please do a video for the baby blanket above on how to join them. I did a larger blanket and joined them using the whipstich. I used a single color and it didn’t look right but then, trying to use matching colors almost had be throwing the whole thing away after I made 36 blocks. Please, I am lost!!

    I am delighted with the way my squares are turning out but I am nervous about stitching it together. I know how to whip stitch but do I need to stitch it using matching colours as I go through the striped pattern?

    What yarn type/size did you use to attach squares together? Also, what color did you use?

    So I have another question. How would changing the hook size to a larger hook size effect it? I’m planning on using a H rather than a G

    hi I was wondering if you could make this pattern into an adult blanket. I’m making this for a friend who is expecting but when my best friend saw it, he asked if he could have one

      You sure can, Alysha! You can make it as large as you want. Just make more squares. I’m working on one now that will be 25 squares. It’s going to look great!

    I to would like to see how to put the squares together. I almost have all nine squares done. I went to the Red Heart pattern and it says whip stitch with matching yarn. Does that mean we have to use the color to match each row as we join them? Please up us to do this correctly.

    I very much did like this video but I was hoping for more tips on actually sewing the blocks together.

    Hi, i am really enjoying making this blanket for a friend of mine. =) The only thing i was wondering was: how did you put them all together? Have you made a video with the method?
    I am actually just beginning crochet so your videos are a really great help.

    Thanks from France =)

    I love this blanket and I am excited to start it. I plan on making one for my oldest daughter, she is 15. My problem is that she would like it in a larger size. To make a larger size would I make each individual section larger or use make more than 9 squares. Thanks in advance!

      to make it bigger i would add more squares. as far as sewing it all together, he talks about how and what tread to use to make it seamless. also you could just youtube how to whip stitch and find tutorials. this is a great pattern. i ripped out the baby blanket i was working on (i was about 1/3 through) and started this instead.
