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? Johnny Vasquez It should work out fine. Try it and see what happens. Tegan 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 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. Tegan 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 No you would create your foundation chain in multiples of 11 (22, 33, 99). Tegan Ohh yes now I understand hahah thanks for that Angie 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. Angie …actually 11+1+1 would be 13. Where am I to add these?? Johnny Vasquez The +1+1 would be added at the very end of your foundation chain, after you chained in multiples of 11. sb Your videos are so well explained, and love the colors shown here, wow.. Thank You- Christina 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?
