What advice would you give someone starting this project? The directions suggest that before adding on the edging, you block the blanket and put a wet sheet on it and let that dry. I did not do this for the first two because I had never done it before and wasn't sure about what it would do. After reading a little about felting I thought maybe this was kind of that only in a minor way. So I tried it (had to clean off 1/2 the ping pong talbe) and though I could have made it wetter it did seem to help it hold its shape more.

I changed out the pictures of this afghan as the first ones posted were too flat and did not show the dimensional quality of this stitch. These give a better sense of the pattern. I liked it better in more vibrant colors.

How many balls yarn do you think you used to make this blanket?

Well, the pattern says: 5 Balls Bernat Softee Chunky Twists (340g/ 12 oz) Gauge 12 DC=7 rows =4 inches My list above says 15 skeins but no weight - so I'm assume I bought in smaller lots. I would try the yarn pattern to match the gauge and then hopefully you will know how much to purchase!!
