I'm having trouble with round 3 and was wondering if anyone could help me or is there a video? Please help I love this and am making it for my mom who is moving out of the country soon so I want it to be a housewarming gift for her new house.

I love this pattern and I'm crocheting it right now but I'm stuck on round 3 and I wasn't wondering if anyone could help? Please I need some guidance.

I made this last year for a friends daughters wedding shower. I made it in a lighter weight because I don't like working with the suggested one and also because we live in Florida.her bedroom was done in a sorta beach motiff so I did it in cream/pale coral/pale turquoise . It came out beautifully.about six months ago she asked me to make one for a friend of hers and the snowball effect took over. I have made five all together. They pick out the colors and just tell me the size. Why do people seem to have so many king size beds?? Lol

I used Aran yarn instead of the homespun and liked how it turned out. I blocked the magnolias at the same time so they'd be a consistent size. I really love what GrammyGwen did with the pattern and am now trying to do something similar. Thank you for the inspiration GrammyGwen!

From afar, this looks like a knitted blanket. This looks elegant by its current color but it will look great in a darker color, probably navy blue or maybe pastel color. It helps that the pattern is right on the front page.

Thank you for this pattern, I fell in love with the flower medallions, I made mine different, I added a pic for you to see.

What a wonderful job! Love the colors you used on your project too! Was this a difficult pattern to complete? I saw it and thought this would be perfect in all gray to go with my bedding in the master bedroom. Any tips or hints on how to complete this project smoothly without having to start over!?

I am putting this at the top of my 'to do' list

This looks beautiful. But I won't do it in Homespun, as that yarn is so difficult to crochet. This is on my To-Do list.

I am pretty much self taught and have a huge problem following the written pattern. Is there by chance a video teaching how to make this Afghan. I would love to make it.

Do you have a full bed version? I just love the look, but I am unable to modify a pattern.. :(

jubeg, I've not been crocheting for long, but this pattern looks fairly easy to modify. The pattern says each medallion is 15x15, so each extra medallion will add about that much to the width. If you add one, the blanket will be 75", or two extra medallions will make it about 90" across. For each extra medallion, you'll need two extra side triangles. You won't need any extra corner triangles because those just go in the four corners. For the narrow side panel, the pattern actually says to just keep crocheting rows until the side panel is as long as the medallions that are stitched together. For the wide side panel, you crochet that directly to the medallion strip, so no measuring required. The only thing is I don't know how many extra skeins of yarn that would take. :) This pattern is going in my must-do pile and I'm with you, I really want to make it full size, not just throw size.

Forgot to add: You'll need to adjust the width of the narrow and wide panels depending on how many extra medallions you add. Full size blankets are usually about 80"x90", so you'll need to add enough rows to the wide and narrow panels to add another 32" or so to the length if you add two extra medallions.
