    I’m trying to figure out the equation of how many chains to determine the size of a blanket, for sizes not listed here. Can you help me out with that?

    This is great Mikey! I found you on youtube by ‘tubing’ some thing I would like. I love your tutorials and this awesome website. I used to crochet years age and my daughter wanted me to make her a super scarf. That got my creative juices flowing again and you seem to have just what I want to make! After 30+ years it is like learning all over again but I’m loving it!

    Keep up the GREAT WORK!

    I’m a newbie to your site and very pleased to have found you! Your instructions are clear as a bell and you work the stitches at a pace I can easily follow. Thanks! With regards to this afghan, is there a formula you used to determine the length of the backbone? I see many people asking for various sizes and I’m pretty sure you have other things to do than answer each one (like making more videos!). If you posted a formula, everyone could figure out their own measurements.

    I could use baby size afghan instructions for a “granny rectangle”, too. Specifically, my “knit night” group often makes 22″x26″ car seat afghans for local charities — what would the starting chain count be for something that small and of those proportions? (I imagine something that small would also be useful for bassinette blankies for hospital newborn/preemie nurseries.)

    Your directions and videos are fabulous. Your dimensions for this afghan are on point. The only thing that was omitted was how much yarn is needed for each size. This is important because lot sizes usually don’t match when you go back for more yarn.

    Just found this tut. It is so easy to do when you explain and show how in the video. How did you finish the edges of these giant grannies?? Did I miss another video?

    I am wondering if these directions can be pdf’d? because I know this will be quick crochets for Christmas for the family this year and thank you for setting this up I can do it but I make a granny square till I get it as wide as I want then get the length then duplicate at other end I am sure this way is MUCH easier than that 🙂

    I’d like to make a baby size rectangle afghan. Would you please add this sizing to your chart? I made a preemie size for my nephew’s preemie in NICU but that was 11 years ago! It fit perfectly in the bassinette-thing she was in but I don’t remember the beginning chain I used. So a beginning chain for a preemie size and a baby bed size would be helpful.

      Hi there… I love that you give this pattern in different sizes, but I’m wondering how you figured them out? Was it just trial and error? I crochet for an organization that request 30×60 since they give many away at one time the like the sizes to be the same. Can you help figure out the size please?? It would be greatly appreciated.
      Thanks, Michelle

    Do you have a chain. Count for a body pillow?

      I don’t as body pillows come in all shapes and sizes. You will need to figure out gauge to determine that.

    This is wonderful! Thank you for taking the time to do this. I was wondering if you had done a starting chain count for a lapghan? I make lapghans for local nursing homes and some have a problem with a large grannie square. Am so glad I just found your website!

    This is something I figured out a long time ago however to see the number of stitches needed for the size you want is a wonderful idea. Thank you for all you do.
