    1. I found that it is 3 of each color. I am about 1/2 way thru and still have more than a skein of each color left. So sounds about right to me.

    2. Hi, thanks for sharing such a beautiful pattern.Im a beginner and just about to send off for Bernard Blanket yarn. Kathy Hart to answer you question, I believe the pattern requires 3x300grm of each colour for a 60x60 blanket. The link provided above takes you to some good priced Bernet Blanket yarn. Happy crocheting.

  4. I am currently working on this blanket and it is turning out amazing! I am curious, I would like to make a pillow to go with it. Can you give me tips on how to sew this onto a pillow case, or how to use this pattern to make a pillow case? Thanks!

    1. I made throw pillows to go with the blankets for Christmas gifts this year (2017). I just did one band of each color (the first 3 bands of the blanket) twice and stitched them back to back with the trim pattern I used for the blanket. I bought premade pillow forms in the craft department to put inside and they turned out great.

  5. I like how the colors are joined on a corner, less visible seam. Love working with Bernat Blanket :) thank you.

  7. Hi Jennifer,
    Thanks for this beautiful pattern! I could use some advice; I've been working on two of these in bright colors for christmas gifts, and after working up 3 skeins on each I've discovered that the shape is all wonky... it seems that the side coming from the beginning corner is getting continually longer than the other three sides. I believe I'm following the pattern as shown in the video, any widsom as to what might be happening? Thank you!

  8. hi I am new to this and newly back to crocheting, I never learned to follow a written pattern so I watched the video for the berries throw, and made 1, now I'm reading the pattern making a 2nd throw and the written pattern seems incomplete to the video and very different from the pictures makes learning difficult any ideas or help how to get around this I can't get to town for classes and none of my friends crochet, anks
