    Beautiful blanket! If I wanted to make a bigger blanket in what multiple do I make the chain?

      The easiest way would be to make a swatch using an even number of stitches + 3. Measure it with a ruler and count the number of stitches per inch. Then determine how wide you want your blanket to be. The stitches per inch with give you the number needed for desired width. Now measure your swatch lengthwise and count the number of rows per inch to determine the number of rows you’ll need for the desired length. Remember to calculate the number of rows for each color.
      Another way would be to chain an even number of stitches and adding 3. I would do the swatch method because it would be more accurate to your personal stitches. Some people crochet tightly and others loosely. I hope this helps.

    I love this pattern and can’t wait to make it. I was won during what changes I would need to make if I used regular worsted weight yarn. Thanks!

    Hi Jamey,

    I love this pattern, and would like to make it a little larger. Can you tell me what multiples I should make to increase it? Thanks for your inspiration, and sharing this pattern with us!!

      Hi Chantal, if you’re looking to increase or decrease the size of this blanket you’ll need to make the blanket in multiples of 3 + 2. Happy making!

    Thank you so much for sharing your patterns and techniques. I just found your site and joined. Looking forward to learning more crochet. I’m a knitter mostly, but enjoy crocheting items for a charity needleworkers’ group.
