  1. Iโ€™m trying to create a blanket with your pattern is it ok to use Double knit wool?
    As Iโ€™m doing it my outside edge is curling so it looks like a lace edge is that ok? x

    • You certainly can, just a key thing to remember when changing yarn for any project, is to adjust your hook size accordingly. If you are a tight crocheter you may have to go up a hook size or two. Is that the look you are trying to get? sometimes rippling happens when there are too many stitches. If you are happy with it, try blocking and enjoy!

  2. Love the look of this pattern! Hoping you can provide more instruction on making this rectangular rather than square. This won’t neatly fit a child’s single/twin size bed.

  3. How much of the regular caron cakes yarn would I need to make this blanket since its worsted weight not super bulky?

    • Maybe I’m too new at this, but continuing this by the video directions has just given me an unworkably ruffled huge round “doilie” instead of the more rectangular afghan shown. Locking at the written instructions, it appears there are key steps not demonstrated in the video. Hate to think I have to pull out 2 balls of yarn and start from scratch using the written instructons now.

  4. If you want to make a rectangle like in the picture, how do you switch to just making it longer when you’ve reached the width you want? Thanks!

  5. I’ve finished with one skein so far, and I’m loving the pattern. I can’t seem to find it on Ravelry though? Is it not there or am I missing something? lol! Thank you for the video tutorial, I was lost until I watched it ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. I switched it up by starting with 12 dc, sets of 5 for shells in Rd 2. Rd 3 looks like your Rd 5. Rd 4 I slip stitched in first gap, starting my row with the corner sc so I ended with the last shell thus eliminating the need to slip stitch across for Rd 5. My afghan is a rectangle.

    • If you watch the video it shows the beginning step.
      In 4th chain from hook (the first one you made) make double crochet, chain 1, double crochet, chain 1 for a total of 7 times. Join with a slip stitc to the 3rd chain of beginning chain 4.

    • Can I get more detail on the alteration beginning? Following as-is gives me a rippled circle. Too many sheโ€™ll stiches of 5 dc each?

  7. You said plum pudding for the color yarn. I looked the color I found was called plum perfect. The plum pudding is in the Caron Big cakes. Just thought I’d let you know. ๐Ÿ™‚
