This is such a pretty pattern, thank you, and I think I have finally found the right afghan to spread across the foot of our king sized bed, YAY! I will have to adjust the size quite a bit but that should be quite simple and have already selected a gorgeously soft yarn in the palest of greys so now all that is left is to get started. I will try and post and photo when it is done.

Patasar 2916591,I would suggest you add some more chains at the beginning foundation chain,just so it is wider.If you want it 1/3 wider,I would say add 32 or 33 more chains to the original 98 ch,I'm not sure if this will work out the way you want it to be though,since I haven't tested it yet.

This afghan does not look very many stitches would you have to add to make it at least a third wider?

This looks like a beautiful afghan. I think it might just be my next project. In the meantime, I have a question on a different project I am working on. I am doing an afghan in double crochet (my first project - new to crochet). I have managed to loose some stitches, is there a way I can fix this without pulling out all of my work?

kay, what that means is second chain FR= from HK=hook.

It means 'from hook'. (Second chain from the hook)

I am new to crochet. In Row 1 you list abbrevations "fr" and "hk". I cannot find these listed on the crocheting abbreviation chart. What do they mean?


If you feel three strands are to expensive, then choose a bulky or chunky yarn. The blanket works fast and is beautiful. You can find many beautiful blankets in 4 ply worsted, but not too many worked fast in three strands.

She says it is 61 " long in her pattern at the end b 4 the edging. I plan to use a size I hook & RED Heart worsted weight yarn, who can affords to use 3 strands nowadays?

I also want to know the dimensions of this afghan.

What are the dimensions of this blanket?
