    I bought the yarn and needle required. As I started to read the directions, Row 4 confused me, working the long post dc from left to right was impossible. I was so frustrated, put away the yarn and needle for about a month. Lo and behold I found your video and you made it look so easy. I can hardly wait to start it again. Thanks!

    I have yet to try an actual pattern and have only made two scarves (the first one just very basic trying to get the feel of crocheting and the 2nd one, I attempted a pattern, got frustrated and made up my own). Is this easy enough to try as a first pattern? I don’t want to go spend the money on the yard/hook and then fail. (not that I can’t return the unopened ones)

      Try with a reduced hook and scrap yarn just a mini sample. That way you will know for sure.

      I used this pattern for the first lap blanket I made. Easy peasy!

    I am looking for a pattern I saw a while ago but cannot find it again. It is an afghan that looks like Leo blocks. Do you know where I could find it?

    In the written pattern for the Bricks Blanket, “4th row: Ch 3 (counts as dc). *3 dc in next ch-4 sp. Yoh and draw up a loop around post of next dc 2 rows below at front of work inserting hook from left to right. (Yoh and draw through 2 loops on hook) twice – long dcfp made.” The pattern say to insert hook from LEFT to RIGHT around the post. You show RIGHT to LEFT in this step. Which is the proper way to do the pattern? Just wondering as it changes the look of the “ridge” depending which way you do it. Thanks.

      Oh my gosh I have been wracking my brain over this. It seem far too inconvenient to go left to right on the front, so I didn’t it right to left instead and it looks exactly like the picture

    Thanks for this video tutorial! I usually only follow written patterns, but was confused on row 4 where it says to insert the hook from left to right for the long fpdc. My brain did not want to do it, so I watched your video and you did it the way I always did for front post – right to left. Thanks again!

    The only Bernat Blanket I have home is a multicolor and I used it to follow along with the tutorial this morning. I will say, once you understand what you’re doing (thanks to the fabulous Mikey!), it is an easy pattern to follow. Unfortunately, the different colors of the multicolor yarn makes you lose the striking affect of the pattern, and the long posts don’t have as much impact. I will make this pattern at some point, but I would only use it with a single color yarn.

      Thanks so much… I saw it this time and have left a video correction notice at the time marker you gave me. 🙂 Appreciate your help.

    That would make a great gift blanket! The receiver would think it took forever, but looks like it would go very quick.

    The video for Right hand Bernat Brick Stitch has an error that makes it sound like you crochet 3 then crochet 4 for a total of 7 right at the beginning of row 1. It should just say crochet 4. After I got to the end of row 2 things did not look right so I referred to the pattern found the error, ripped out and started over.
