    Am I missing something here? I Watched you do a chain of 20 for a king blanket the t he tutorial splices to another one where it’s only one white block and you’ve already done your cross. I’m doing a base block of 7 and can’t figure this out. Help please!

      Hi I need to know how to work out a rectangle piece of work measuring 56 cm wide and 86 cm high how can I do this. Also the chart is great but it would be nice if you could put the measurements in cm as some beds are different sizes. Ie the Uk ones are different to the USA ones thanks

    I want to do a rectangle lap robe and would like to do it in a Noro. They are small skeins, so how many for a
    comfortable lap robe. Your Tutorial is how I learned to do it, after flunking 2 knitting classes. Yours is the best.
    Thank you

    I love this idea! I’m trying to figure out if I want to make bigger boxes 12×10 sized for more of the quilt feel. So can I still use these box counts for the various finished sizes? I know I’ll have to make each box multiplied by 20 instead of 10, but I want to make sure my ratio will work ok. I think it will because it’s simply twice as large going both directions so in theory I’ll just get to the finished size in 1/2 the blocks, but i want to make sure I’m thinking correctly.

    Also, if I want to make a size in between 2 sizes, for example I want something wider than a twin but more narrow than a double, will it look ok if I just pick a box count in between those two box counts? Again, I think it makes sense because the length will stay the same and the width should then fall between the twin and double widths, but I haven’t done enough with tunisian math to feel confident.

    Any and all help is much appreciated! Thanks so much for this great tutorial!

    Loved the tutorial. I do pause it alot. Wish it was just a little slower. Hard learning a new stitch sometimes.

    Thank you for teaching the entrelac square. I have not seen how to do the triangles to make the sides straight. Please keep it up for a while so I have time to get an alternate color yarn to a very light yellow for a “don’t know the sex yet of baby” baby blanket. Thank you.
    I will need to refer to it many times because I forget easily and want to master this.
    Thank you so much again,
    Simply Sharon lol

    I’m missing something here. How can a KING size blanket be only 2 squares and a TWIN size be 13 squares? Is there a type? Size small to large is: lapghan, throw, twin, double, queen, king.

      King size is closer to a square than is a twin size, it will still use more rounds, but the dimensions are rougly King- 72×84 twin 74×35 (inches)

      each bed size is a different length. So sometimes you need a longer length than wideth. The extra squares in the middle ensures that you have the extra length you need. The bigger the bed the nearery the length and width are smiliar sizes. so it becomes more square.
      Hope that helps

    Awesome! One of the reasons I haven’t done anything with this is because I thought it would be perfect for a bed…. but the bed isn’t square. Looking forward to the updated tutorial, and I think I already have some of the yarn to get started. (I have 5 skeins of a yarn I bought with no particular project in mind just because it was so pretty, lol.)
