    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!

    You said in tutorial you said you were making two boxes for a queen and you wrote 8 boxes for a queen size little confused.

    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,

    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)

    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.)
