    The video was so confusing. At the end of row 2 you instruct to single crochet but you are putting a double crochet in the last stitch. The instructions need to match what you are saying and doing. Probably be best to re-do the video correctly.

    I do like your videos. I’ve been crocheting for a little under a year and find your clarity appealing. I just finish making my first baby blanket for my grandchild due in July. I made it perfect, except for your flip instruction as to single crocheting the sides. I did as you said and made my best guess and now my perfect blanket no longer lays flat. I want to pull it out and do over but my daughter won’t let me. You really could have given better advice as to the disappointing edging. Also after a few rows I asked myself why am I going from the back when one achieves the same effect crossing from the front. That added extra time. That is interesting but not necessary. Keep up the good work . I’m just upset about my wonky edge

    Mikey – great video however would you explain in detail how the counts change; I start with an odd number (95) and I understand because I start w/a sc in the ‘2nd’ ch of row 1, I end up with ’94’ st. So in order to end up with odd number of st in row 2, I start the row by ch3 and , and am placing my first dc in the 3rd ch and going back to the 2nd ch that I skipped to work my dc (therefore skipping the 1st ch, which is the loop that I ch 3 in) – is that correct?
    I still have even st (94) to start row 3; so I ch1 and begin sc in the 2nd st – is that correct?
    I always end up with even st, however by placing my hook when starting each row (as stated above) appears to be working, although I don’t know how…..

    I believe you may have mis-spoken at the end of row 2. You stated several time that the stitch was supposed to be a single crochet, however I believe you used a double crochet which would seem to be more appropriate. I only comment on this to hopefully help new crocheters who might be confused by the difference.

    I love all your patterns and videos! I use this pattern frequently as it works up quickly and nicely! I also love working on center start blankets. Is there a way to make the Criss Cross pattern into a center start blanket?

    Hi Mikey I am watching you crochet the criss-cross stitch. When I do this stitch I go into the front of the stitch where you are going into the back to make the cross. I find it is much easier and quicker to do it this way.

      Yeah, I have heard that from others as well. Criss cross the way you feel most comfortable. If you decide a way, just be consistent.

    Why does the criss cross blanket call for a J and a K hook? You don’t change hooks in the video.

      I didn’t no. I didn’t think it needed to and I didn’t on camera. Do what you feel is right for you. Sometimes I adlib from the pattern and do my own thing.
