    I have a question on 11th red. It says there should be 26 sc each side but if you do the round as written I only come up with 20 sc. Are we really to skip 2 dcs?

    • Lola, Jeanne checked her notes. She’s unsure how you are getting only that many stitches in that round. We don’t have any answers for you as we cannot duplicate why you are missing stitches.

    Beautiful!I really love the colours. What brand of yarn did you use

  3. Deb Ulatowski

    Hi Jeanne.. I’m wondering if your gorgeous design, Framed Textures Crochet Afghan will be made available in diagram format for instructions.. I’m hoping so, I have a great-great niece that would love to roll around on the floor on this! Fingers crossed!!
    Thank you!
    Deb U.

    • We don’t plan on that at this time. Daniel needs a couple days to work through the drawing of it as it’s not a quick process.

    I think that your framed texture blanket is so beautiful. I need to change the colors to match my decor but I am looking forward to starting it. My Mom taught me crotchet many years ago in my youth. I think of her everytime I make something for someone and they are so happy with their items. I can imagine Mom smiling down at me and saying “well done”
