    Don’t understand why my comment keeps disappearing, but I’ll try for the third time. I am having trouble proceeding beyond row 4. If you follow pattern, the 5th row, which is bobbles, will have the bobbles pop out on the WRONG side. The only way to prevent that would be to cut the yarn and start row five on the other end, yet the pattern does not say to do so. I cannot understand how to proceed beyond row 4.

    I am having a problem with proceeding beyond row 4. Unless you cut the yarn and start at other end to do the bobble row, the bobbles will pop onto the wrong side. The pattern does not indicate that you should break the yarn and start at other end. I am having problems working beyond row 4. Actually, it appears that the first row is actually a ‘right’ side row…

      Hi Sherri. Row 1 is marked as the WS, wrong side, so all the odd numbers rows are working on the wrong side. So for row 5, it’s correct. The bobbles pop to the opposite side of what you are actually hooking, so when you flip it over, it’s the right side. Hope this makes sense.

    I would like to know if the video can be down loaded to a tablet or computer. I do not always have access to internet. I like to crochet while traveling and sometimes need the video to double check that I am doing the written instructions correctly. Thank you Alice

      I personally do not know if they is a way to download a video from YouTube to a personal device. Maybe Google search to see if there is a solution.

    I love this pattern but am not in love with the way the colors flow….like not completing a row in the color it started in. How would you break down the individual colors to determine how many skeins/yrds you’d need/color??? And then to determine how many rows to use an individual color for?

      I think deciding on colors would be up to you, but when I used the cakes, the yarn changed about every other row. It depended on the stitch though because the bobble row is a bit more of a yarn hog. How much yarn would be determined after you decide how many different colors you prefer. As Mikey always says, you are the artist. 🙂

    I have a silly question, I’m trying to pick out colors for this blanket but I’m needing to know how many rows are in each ‘section’ if that makes sense. So from one bubble row to the next bubble row. Follow me? lol

    Hello! I love the look of your blanket and I am following your instructions along with watching videos posted because I have never done the Crosstitch or the bobbles stitch before. I am starting row five but it looks like my bobbles will be on the back of the blanket? Am I supposed to End row four and start at the end of my row so the bobbles are to the front?
    I am also making this blanket for a new grandbaby !!!

      Bobbles are always worked from the wrong side. The odd number rows are the wrong side. Actually, the only stitch done on the right side of the blanket is the sc rows. Can’t wait to see yours. 🙂

      I too have a problem with the first five rows. When you complete row 4 ( repeating row 2), you will be on right side of work. But row 5 is a bobble row and must be worked on wrong side. You would have to cut the yarn and start at other end, yet the pattern does not indicate to do so. I cannot figure out how to work beyond row 4… 🙁
