Thank you so much, Kathryn. 🙂
I just started this blanket. Question. Is it displayed on the wrong side in the pictures (
No, it is the right side of the blanket.
Can I ask a question? I’m sure it will be an obvious when explained.
Can you please explain the crochet multiple of 4+3=96+3= 99
I would like to make this blanket a bit larger but the crochet multiple isn’t making much sense to me atm
Thanks in advance
Hi Gina, Thank you for letting me know about this. It was a typing mistake and I fixed it as crochet multiple of 4+3. (4 x 24) + 3 = 99 chains for this blanket
Hi, such a pretty stitch, ideal for self patterning yarn. After rows1 to 6 do I then repeat rows 3,4,5&6 ? Thanks for sharing your wonderful patterns
Thank you Marie, So glad you like it. Yes, After completing 1 to 6 rows, you have to repeat rows 3,4,5,and 6 continuously.
I am on row 6 are the beginning & endings suppose to not match up? I have redone it 3x, double checked the pattern. Mine don’t match, yet all the rest is great.
Hi, Vivian. Did you follow the stitch tutorial I posted for Pastel Peaks Blanket pattern? >> https://www.crochetforyoublog.com/2017/01/stitch-tutorial-pastel-peaks-blanket-hat/
Can you use 2 skeins of caron big cakes
Yes, of course, you can use any weight of yarns but the size of your finished project may get a different size than the original size. 🙂
Hi there I am pretty new to crocheting so I can’t work out if your pattern is in British or American crocheting terms. Can you please advise?
Hi Judith, this pattern is written in US terms. 🙂
Hi, I love both patterns for the hat and blanket. Was wondering if I were to make both of them with Lion Brand Ice Cream Big Scoop, how many balls would i need? Thanks so much for sharing these beautiful patterns. 🙂
