    Hello! Is there a diagram for this pattern? I find diagrams so much easier to understand. Thank you!

    Is there a video for this one yet? I just don’t seem to be able to get the middle bit right at all, which means I have to keep frogging, and then I lose the will to live lol.

    Hi love this pattern but am really struggling with round 4 where it says repeat round 2 maybe I’m a bit thick but there are no chain spaces in round 4 so don’t understand how to do round 2

    Hi Jeanne, when i go to print the updated pattern after correction of stitch counts the last 5 rounds are missing. It only prints through round 45 and only half of that.

        Hi. The pattern on the link is still the old one. The stitch count isn’t rite. When will this be uploaded please. Thankyou x

    Ok, I’m like everyone else. I’m finding the stitch count off on the rows and having to rip out many, many times. Can we please have a video?

    VIDEO, VIDEO, VIDEO! lol I’ve had to frog the first few rounds a couple times….ok, maybe more than a couple…but I am determined to get this beautiful blanket done right! I couldn’t even begin to explain why I’m having such difficulties. Some I’ve read already in the comments from other hookers (that made me feel less silly). I’ll keep on trying. Thinking positive…this time is the charm! 🙂

    printed the pattern…started & ripped out multiple times until I watched the video……first, I assumed on Rnd 1 I chain 4, join, THEN ch4 in 4th ch and Rnd 5 video has 2hdc between popcorn but written states 1hdc … also had issues with one corner but think I figured that out…time will tell 🙂 attempt number 5 coming up

    The pattern is lovely. Stitch counts on all the rows would be helpful. I’ve gotten to row 21 and there’s no way to fit 18 pic per side. I’d really hate to have to frog back to row 13 to ascertain my stitch counts are correct.

    Ripped this out three times trying to keep the first 4 rounds flat. The beginning corner seems to be off and it throws the whole thing off. Ughhhh

    loving hugs and kisses. Please show us how to make a scarf with it

    This is so incredibly beautiful! Do you think it would be fairly easy to keep repeating rows until the blanket was large enough for a bed spread? (I suppose piecing together 4 of them would cover a king-sized bed, wouldn’t it?) Congratulations on your creation. I am in awe!

      Yes, just keep going! The popcorn rounds are the only thing that change a bit. Just wiggle them in and keep going. 🙂

    I love this pattern!!! I love the “round” it makes the corners look so unique!!! However i’m having a small problem with Row 5… with 52 SC (from round 4) i’m unable to get the required 4 PC stitches per side on round 5. UUUGGG i feel so foolish… but i’m having to make 5 PC stitches to get to the corner. Help… What am i doing wrong?

        Omg (slapping forehead) THAT’S what I was getting wrong time and time again, and suddenly with your comment the ‘light” went on on how to read the pattern correctly, lol This is the first time I’ve ever done a written pattern so wish me luck!

    I am doing this pattern, and LOVING it. Thank you so much! I did notice the instructions for the popcorn stitch are incomplete, but I was able to figure it out. Just wanted to let you know.

    I LOVE this pattern. However… Maybe I’m overthinking something with what you’re saying about the popcorn stitch. Do 4 dc, and drop the loop from the hook. Then insert the hook from front to back into the top 2 loops of the first dc. Here’s where I get baffled… at that point, I re-attach the dropped loop? Feeling a little dense here… LOL

      Oh duuuhhhhhh…. I got it. Must not try to think too much this late at night. Clearly, I need to put down the hook. LOL

    Really enjoying this pattern but the stitch counts need to be double checked as at least one is incorrect. Once I figured that out I was able to go along nicely on my own so not sure if there are further math errors.

        Row 12 stitch count is incorrect

          I get 140 sc total. 3 per corner plus 32 each side.

    Yes, the picture captured my attention and the article made me want to make the blanket!

    Hi Jeanne, I have a question please… in Round 1, do we single crochet or slip stitch to top of beg chain? I ask because all the other rounds say sl st. I want to make sure to start this correctly. I am using Blue Hawaii. Can’t wait to see how the colors look with this pattern! Love Love Love this one! Thank you so much!

      On the first round, I use a sc to close the round so that you are in the center of the corner space. All rounds after that end in the corner.
