    Is there a video tutorial for the pillow? Thank you so much; I never would have been able to do this without the video!

    I would love an explanation on how to create the pillow – I get it so far, but I am scared of when I get further along. I can not visualize how when I start decreasing that it will create a pillow shape.

    Mikey, When I read the supply list it says to use an I hook but in the video it looks like you were using a J hook. Is the I correct? Thank you…. You have taught me a lot….

      He may be using a larger hook to adjust his tension. If you crochet tight, I’d say go with the J, if not stick with the I

    I believe I emailed you, but if I were to make them bigger…. How would I go about continuing the first 10 rounds? I have someone wanting a queen size. and I think it would be easier to make them bigger, rather then doing more of each piece… thoughts?

    I really enjoyed working on this throw, I am having a little bit of trouble with corners and edges. Right now I have some of it laid out on my carpet so I can figure things out and I don’t end up having to do everything over again. Mikey you are an excellent teacher and I have learned a lot from you, I’m so glad I discovered you when I was recuperating from my knee replacement.

    The tutorial video was as awesome as the peppermint throw itself! To make assembly easier, I color-coded each motif with a 4″ piece of yarn and labeled a grocery bag with motif # and color of yarn to match. (Example: All #1 motifs were in their own bag,etc.) I wrote a list of the code by the graph on the instruction sheet. I sewed the first horizontal row (Row 1) together as shown on the graph, pulling motifs from the bags as I went along. When the first horizontal strip was done, I sewed five small motifs into place along the strip. Then I sewed the next horizontal strip (Row 2) together and sewed it in one long strip to the first strip. I added the small motifs to that row, then stitched Row 3 into a strip,etc. Having a plan for assembly really speeded up the process for me.

      Gramsy, THANK YOU so much for your help in the assembly. The Tutorial was magnificent but it fell off on the end. I have had the motifs completed for a month, and Christmas is getting near so I must finish it NOW, but was stalling because I couldn’t figure out how to best accomplish it. Then I read your post and Voilà. I will now make it in time for my Christmas present. MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!

    What is the approximate dimensions of this afghan?

    The tutorial helped me so much. I just finished the first motif I know that I have a long way to go. I was reading some of the comments. Some was having trouble putting it together. I started pinning the motifs together where they belong so that I won’t make a mistake. If I have I will catch it and put it where it belongs before I even begin that process. .Thank you for making the tutorial.

    Thank you so much, I love this pattern but I was so intimidated by it. The only thing I’ve done in the past has been simple baby afghans. I can’t wait to start on this. Thank you so much for your tutorial

    Mikey…..If you go all the way to round 10…when you do round 11 how many double crochets do you do around the chain on the back? You did 4 but if you actually go to round 10 there are more spaces…ie…you only had 3 DC’s on each side of the corner…at row 10 there would be 5 DC’s on each side of the corner. So would you do 5 DC’s around the chain in the back? Did I explain that clear enough???

      there are 6 different endings for round 11. You need to follow the video and/or the pattern.

        I followed your video Mikey…I was doing the #1 Large motif. In the video it doesn’t look like you did all 10 rounds…when I started the edging for it in your video I had more double crochets (10) in each section…which is what I should have had if I did all 10 rounds…..right?? I will look at the written instructions to see if I can figure out if I’ve missed something!

      For Janice Perla, what I did when joining was to use a different color yarn and code each one. Like all 1s got yellow, 2s got blue, etc. I then attached all 1s and 2s and then added the little squares. It is easier to place them on a bed or floor and see the setting

    Is it going to make a huge difference if I use Red Heart Super Saver instead of the Read Heart Soft?

    I’m so glad you made a tutorial.
    I sooo want to make this; but it just sounded too complex from just the pattern alone.
    It makes far more sense now – I am still wondering if I’m going to get it done by Christmas but hey, it’s worth a go.
