What materials did you use? Instead of Caron Simply Soft, I used yarn from Deborah Norville collection Everday Soft Worsted.

What are you most proud of? Finally finishing! This blanket took some time, mostly because I didn't have much spare time.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Following a graph is easier if you place a ruler under the row you are working on to keep your place.

one more question I promise! Did you do the puff stuff as was instructed in the pattern? is there a trick to make them stay up on the correct side? Thank you!

did you start with ch 140?

I followed the original Caron pattern using Deborah Norville Collection yarn in a multi-color skein. I did cast on 140 and did the "puff" stitch as instructed. It hellps to stay tight on the last "pull through 2 loops" . When finished, I went around the entire blanket with single crochet and then did a round of shells. Jazz it up a bit! This took me a few months to complete but worth it. Take care.

Hi! This looks fabulous! How much yarn did you use for this? I've been looking at the pattern and have been estimated 6 balls of 100grams. Does this sound right?

Thank you. This blanket took around 900 grams, worsted weight. Simply Soft by Caron is around 6oz/170grams/skein..Deborah Norville is 3.5oz/100g/skein
