    I love this pattern! I want to make a baby blanket as a gift using this pattern, but I’d like to use a double crochet instead of a single. Do I need to make any changes for this to turn out right?

      It should work out fine. Try it and see what happens.

    I’d love to make this how wide does it end up? P.s I’ve only just started teaching my self how to crochet this week and I can’t read patterns so thank god for your videos <3 but I'm still not sure how to make it the size I want?

    • Johnny Vasquez

      April 23, 2013

      It depends on how thick your yarn is, how big your hook is, and how loose or tight you crochet, so I can’t really tell you how long it will be. You’ll have to test it out.

    Soo I’m stil not sure how to make it a metre wide? Do I make several sets of 11 and join them?

    • Johnny Vasquez

      April 23, 2013

      No you would create your foundation chain in multiples of 11 (22, 33, 99).

    I keep running into trouble. According to prior question that the foundation chain is in multiples of 11. Please explain the 1+1. If I add one for base stitch isn’t that twelve??? I am really confused. I am new to crocheting and learning everything from various videos, I just wish my Mother-in-law was still here to teach me in person.

    • Johnny Vasquez

      You’ll create your foundation chain in multiples of 11 then add 1 at the very end. This last stitch will become part of the first stitch in the next row and essentially disappears.

      Does that help?

    …actually 11+1+1 would be 13. Where am I to add these??

    • Johnny Vasquez

      June 17, 2013

      The +1+1 would be added at the very end of your foundation chain, after you chained in multiples of 11.

    So if I’m doing a personal size afghan and use 99 stiches for my foundation I would add +9 more stiches to the the end for +1?

    • Johnny Vasquez

      July 17, 2013

      You’d add two actually. +1 for the pattern and an additional stitch for the base chain.
