Q&A with justdunny

Pineappleworks asked:
I love the color choices you make! This would look gorgeous on my living room wall. <3
justdunny answered:
Thank you! My colour choices are limited as I buy yarn when it's really cheap as most blankets are donated to charity or "sold" for a donation to charity.

tisa enjoyment asked:
I am trying to work this pattern for someone and I am not sure that I understand the instructions for the center which is the first piece of the pattern. Is there anyone that can explain how the first two rounds go and what does she mean about making the corner stitiches?
justdunny answered:
Sorry it's not clear. You can work the corner in any way that's comfortable for you. I just work to the last stitch and turn the work to the right so the last st worked is now at the right hand top corner and work from there (like you would if you turned the work over). Alternatively, you could work 5 tr (US dc) into the corner st to make the corner, but this will be quite bulky. If you don't mind holes in the corners, you can work 2 tr (US dc), 2 ch, 2 tr into the corner. I've tried to avoid the holes at the corner.
tisa enjoyment asked:
Thank you for your help but on the second round how many stitches are there suppose to be on each side?
justdunny answered:
It would be 3 tr (or DC for US terms) on each side, then work the corner sts into the ch st at the corner. The centre row will look circular until you work into the chains between. The method I use (th one in the pattern) makes the work very flat and uniform. There would be no problem working 2 or 3 tr, 2 ch, 2 or 3 tr into that corner chain st to make the corner.
