Basketweave Crocheted Throw

Project Description

What was your source for this crocheting project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo Basketweave Twists Afghan Link to website or photo 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.

Q&A with Marie Withrow

Analyse asked:
How many balls yarn do you think you used to make this blanket?
Marie Withrow answered:
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!!
