  1. I saw Bernat Blanket yarn at the store and I was wanting a nice pattern so I could make something and this is perfect! Thank you!

  2. love learning and trying new stitches...

  3. Is there a printed version of this pattern?

  5. Hi Jennifer: This looks like a project for me. Question: What size skeins did you use? 3 oz. or the jumbo big skein?

  6. I have started this beautiful blanket. One question s it normal for the blanket to not li flat while working each row?

  7. Are these the 10.5 ounce skeins or the smaller ones?

  8. Just finished this blanket. It's so soft, I love it. Somewhat disappointing tho, it's smaller than the pattern says it will be. Mine only measures 44 inches wide and 58 inches long. In the pic it looks like there are 14 stripes, 4 rows per stripe so 56 rows total. This is my first project so my stitches may be too tight or something. Still a great blanket and it will look great on my couch!

    1. I agree. I chaned 100 to be on the safe side but found it too small still. Next time I will chane 140 or 160.

    2. I agree. I chaned 100 to be on the safe side but found it too small still. Next time I will chane 140 or 160.

    3. When I finish an afghan, this is what I do. You will need baby or lingerie soap, a flat sheet bigger then desired afghan size & many straight pins.
      1) Wash afghan on very gentle cycle of washing machine, using baby or lingerie soap.
      2) Choose a site with plenty of ventilation, very little traffic and enough room to spread out your afghan to the desired size.
      3) Lay a clean cotton flat sheet over area.
      4) Pin afghan on top of sheet, to desired shape & size.
      5) Let dry overnight.
      6) If bottom isn’t completely dry, turn afghan & lay it flat on a dry surface, until completely dry.

  9. Your chain 90 made blanket 65 inches wide, if I wanted to make a smaller blanket, do you know how many I would chain? Like, would it be a number divisible by 3, plus 4?
    I want to make a blanket about 45-50 inches wide.

    1. in the video she says a number divisible by 3...i wanna try 60 sts for a baby or young kid blankie...let u know how wide it comes out...

    2. Divisible by 6

  10. I just finished a throw based on this pattern. I modified the colors (Bernal Blanket Brights in Pow Purple, Royal Blue, and Busy Blue) and the number of color changes. I was going for a wave look but I don't feel I really achieved it. I wish I could upload pictures here so I'll try on YouTube.

  11. I got this yarn and did a throw for myself. Using the same stitch, LOVE IT!

  12. I got this yarn and made a throw for myself. I love it!

  13. I used this pattern to make my son a blanket. It's so gorgeous he can't stop talking about it. So soft! I used burgundy, grey, and a lovely blue. Thanks for your great tutorials. You're one of my favorite YouTube teachers.

  14. Which size of skein is used for this? Do I need 9 balls of the 150g or 9 balls of the 300g?

    1. Pattern states 9 balls

    2. 9 Balls of Bernat Blanket (150g size)

  15. I am curious which size balls of yarn you are using here? I clicked on the links in your post, but I just get an error.

    I would love to make this blanket; thank you for the pattern and your clarification!

  16. I too wod lime to know what size ball was used. Its been asked several times and i do not see an answer. I assume it is not the big ball if calling for 9 as i have made some noce size blankets with 6?

  17. Are those the small balls of yarn or the big 10.5 oz?

  18. Did anyone find out the multiples? I would love to make this as a baby blanket.
