This pattern includes a video to give the crocheter an insight into the process of working the new points. This lovely blanket when worked with Red Heart or Hobby Lobby yarn which is 4 ply medium worsted is a very large blanket over 70' aross (check out the pictures). This pattern is ideal for making an afghan for someone to curl up on the couch under or for a bed. Using a yarn such as Caron Simply Soft will create a blanket that is sligtly smaller in size but just as lovely. If you prefer a color scheme and size for a baby, please check out my Whimsical version of this pattern which is smaller and more baby color orientated.
I started crocheting the usual way, watching my mother when I was young however, she did not teach me, I learned thru reading Leisure Arts pattern books.
