    I’m a newbie to your site and very pleased to have found you! Your instructions are clear as a bell and you work the stitches at a pace I can easily follow. Thanks! With regards to this afghan, is there a formula you used to determine the length of the backbone? I see many people asking for various sizes and I’m pretty sure you have other things to do than answer each one (like making more videos!). If you posted a formula, everyone could figure out their own measurements.

    I could use baby size afghan instructions for a “granny rectangle”, too. Specifically, my “knit night” group often makes 22″x26″ car seat afghans for local charities — what would the starting chain count be for something that small and of those proportions? (I imagine something that small would also be useful for bassinette blankies for hospital newborn/preemie nurseries.)

    Your directions and videos are fabulous. Your dimensions for this afghan are on point. The only thing that was omitted was how much yarn is needed for each size. This is important because lot sizes usually don’t match when you go back for more yarn.

    Just found this tut. It is so easy to do when you explain and show how in the video. How did you finish the edges of these giant grannies?? Did I miss another video?

    I am wondering if these directions can be pdf’d? because I know this will be quick crochets for Christmas for the family this year and thank you for setting this up I can do it but I make a granny square till I get it as wide as I want then get the length then duplicate at other end I am sure this way is MUCH easier than that 🙂

    I did this 40 years ago didn’t break it down at 15 I was lucky to finish it and my mom rip still had it up till she died and I now have it again and put a border on it …….don’t be sad for me I had my mom 54 years and she was my worst enemy and best friend I miss her but she will never be forgotten 🙂

    Ok I am feeling so silly, just starting out and I am wondering if you could add 2 more rows to the video?, I can not catch on to the corners… I need just a bit more help here…Thanks if you decide to do it, have a hard time reading the patterns, I know I have it right up to the point you quit then I am lost for some reason. So frustrated right now…Thanks again…

    I’d like to make a baby size rectangle afghan. Would you please add this sizing to your chart? I made a preemie size for my nephew’s preemie in NICU but that was 11 years ago! It fit perfectly in the bassinette-thing she was in but I don’t remember the beginning chain I used. So a beginning chain for a preemie size and a baby bed size would be helpful.

    Can you please tell me how I can get this rectangular pattern sent to me since I do not have a printer and I keep having trouble with my iPad.

  • November 22, 2014 at 11:22 pm

    Like this very much. Can you please tell us how many skeins it will take to make this blanket for a twin bed.

    I’m looking for the solid style granny square to make an Afghan for a full size bed. Could you make a pattern & a tutorial video for it please?

    • October 27, 2014 at 10:49 pm

      Yes yes thank you for this tutorial. I also am interested in the solid rectangle granny. I’m going to try to figure it out using the info from this toot!

  • October 2, 2014 at 2:21 pm

    Fantastic, just started my first Twin bed Afghan and the video and instructions are real easy to follow.

    Do you have a chain. Count for a body pillow?

      I don’t as body pillows come in all shapes and sizes. You will need to figure out gauge to determine that.

    Thanks this is great info. 🙂

  • September 17, 2014 at 7:43 am

    Thanks so much, have been looking for this pattern for quite some time !

  • September 17, 2014 at 1:43 am

    This is wonderful! Thank you for taking the time to do this. I was wondering if you had done a starting chain count for a lapghan? I make lapghans for local nursing homes and some have a problem with a large grannie square. Am so glad I just found your website!

    • September 12, 2015 at 11:37 pm

      I would also appreciate a breakdown for lapghan sizes. I make lapghans for our local VA hospital. Thank you for all your hard work!

    Thanks so much for the break down on the stitches for the size.I just got done making a twin size.Wish I would of known this info but it still turned out great.Love your group

  • September 16, 2014 at 4:52 pm

    This is something I figured out a long time ago however to see the number of stitches needed for the size you want is a wonderful idea. Thank you for all you do.

    • September 17, 2014 at 1:30 am

      Thanks! This is fab.
