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. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY single crochet double crochet half double crochet SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Size: over 70' across using the above yarn. Using a thinner yarn will create a smaller item.
