  1. Love this pattern and all your patterns. Thank you so much for your tutorials. You explain stitches so well. Love your cats. I do have a question on the fast and easy blanket. If you want to make wider. Is there a certain number of stitches to use such as odd or even numbers etc. Thank you so much.

    1. Hello. I love this pattern thank you for sharing. What size hooks do you recommend if I use a 5 weight yarn?

  2. Hi Carol. I am a beginner, never crochet before. I do knitting. Is this an easy blanket to start with. If I want to make it a little bigger, how many odd numbers should I use instead of the 81 chains you are suggesting. Hope to hear from you soon. Thank you, its a beautiful blanket. Maria

  3. Your instructions indicate using is a 6.5 and a 7 mm crochet hook. Here in the US, we jump from a 6.5 (K-10.5) to an 8 mm (L-11). Would you please explain what hooks you suggest using ???

    1. I used a K and the L. My blanket turned out beautiful. I can’t see any difference. The only other thing you can do is order some crochet hooks from Europe.

  4. Hi not being nasty or anything but did you see the four wrong size stitch in last row of your beautiful blanket

      1. At time stamp 15:10 you can see it. Why people are so critical, I’ll never understand. You verbal explanation was correct. I think people who criticize, are just jealous. This is a beautiful pattern!❤️

  5. I love your patterns. Also love hearing your kitty in the background. I miss my cat after having it for 19 years. Your video is so helpful.
