    Mikey, first off. I absolutely love this design. Please thank Diva Dan for it from me. I wanted to ask about the border round. I think I found a typo. On round three of the border, it states with Color C, shouldn’t it be Color A (the white and not the peacock)? Thank you for all you do, you are amazing.

      The pattern is free. Look at this article again and you will see the instructions typed in them. You don’t need to order the pattern. – Mikey

    I don’t like things that can snag, so I just did hdc’s instead of spike stitches in round 12 and I picked up the ch3picots from round 6 when doing round 7. When starting the Jacob’s ladder rounds, I skipped the first 2dc’s to be made in the same stitch in the beginning so I could end the round with two dc’s and join with an invisible join instead of a slip knot. I also started with standing dc’s instead of chain3’s, because it looks much better.

    I also started with a magic ring to make the hole smaller in round one. And I decreased the chain10 loops to chain 9. I also twisted the loops before feeding them through the next one to make the Jacob’s Ladder more secure and to eliminate the big holes.

    Thank you for this pattern it will be my New Years challenge I just really started crocheting last year on the afghan challenge and have made several items since. Currently making a couple of the women’s peaked hats. Your videos are awesome, thanks so much for them as they are such a help to me. Just ordered yarn and will begin when the video is available. I was torn between this pattern and the window but settled on the snowflake I am rambling somwill just say again thanks.

    Just skimmed on through the comments….are there graphs to follow? I LOVE LOVE LOVE those. I have learned how to 1) Read a Pattern; 2) Read a Graph when the pattern didn’t quite make sense; 3) blended it all using the Videos. ~~ Awesome Awesome. I am head injured and it makes a difference. Thank you for giving me a purpose. And, I am left handed to boot. Ha! ~ Thanks guys.

    This afghan is absolutely beautiful. Downloaded pattern and can’t wait to get the yarn. Will welcome the tutorial but it’s one of those patterns that I think I can do on my own but love hearing and watching the steps in your tutorials.

    Daniel, it was love at first sight. I immediately printed the pattern & can’t wait to get the yarn so that I can start making it. Thank you for this amazing Christmas gift.

    Your Winter Blizzard Afghan is THE most amazing thing I’ve ever seen! I believe I can follow your directions. The only change I would like to see is a step by step photo of a motif as each color change is added. Maybe it’s not necessary, but for a visual learner it would be helpful. Thank you so much for the time, effort, & talent it took to create this afghan.

      I will be adding a video tutorial for each step. That’s why we never photographed step by step. Thanks for your input. It will give us room to improve in the future. – Mikey

    Just looking at the instructions makes my heart beat a bit faster. I love the design: stitches and color composition. The text is clean and crisp. Photo’s are really well done! Thanks again for the cheers and laughter you manage to create 😀 Have a very good time for now and forever for The whole Crochet Crowd.
