  1. It is beautiful! I am affraid that it is too difficult for me. Maybe to practice another time. I would like to make my,daughter a baby blanket for the birth if her child. Any suggestions on maybe something a little more simple, yet beautiful? Thank you. I cant wait to go,see all your videos on crochet.

    1. Hi. You can make the easiest blanket ever. It’s just single crochet and dc. You can make it easily.

  2. Thanks for this wonderful tutorial. The blanket is gorgeous. The photos don’t show the whole blanket or much perspective so I’m not sure what the finished blanket’s size. How big is the finished product please? Thanks. You do beautiful work.

  3. Hi! I have been working this pattern on 180 stitches. I am getting a wavy effect on the edge where I switch from single to the cable work. Any suggestions? I have stopped counting the single crochets since the first few rows.

  4. Thanks for this pattern i have finished it just now but wanted to tell you there’s a mistake in your written pattern on row 6. I started this project just before i went to bed while i watched your video. In the morning i decided to print it out to refer to rather than try to keep up with the video. Within minutes i knew something was wrong but as a novice i didn’t know what so i carried on with the written instructions and finished it. Eventually i went back to the video and there i saw the problem. Where it says on row 6 1 fptr around the next fptr, sk 2 fptr………i now know by watching it should be sk 1 fptr. Hope this saves someone else from making a project that did turn out good enough for me even with the mistakes but i think most don’t want to finish their project on a sour note. Hope this helps someone else just learning.

  5. Hello, This pattern looks lovely. Can you tell me the size of the finished blanket using the amount of yarn specified. Thank you

  6. Maşallah çok güzel .. very nice blanket .. i love your work .. and also i love Turkey
    Iam from Egypt ☺

  7. Thank you so much for this pattern! I’m going to make it for my friend who’s expecting her first baby in January, i just know she will love the pattern.

  8. I would like to make this pattern for an adult. How many stitches do I add to my starting chain? Or in multiples of how many stitches (for example, multiples of 7 or 10 extra stitches)?

  9. The blanket is just what I would like to do for my first grandchild. I will watch the blog but I am trying to print the pattern so I can absorb it. I am sure I will be in touch when I start next week.
