I so wish there was a video of this pattern. I would so love to make it. Still learning how to read a pattern

How do I print the pattern without all the ads and other non-essentials attached to the pattern. I am not fond of keeping my laptop open while I work.

Is sage the correct color. When I went to purchase the yarn the greens didn't seem to fit in with the colors

Stunning! I hope to try it.

Wowzers...fantastic blanket.

Literally the most stunning blanket. From the color to the texture, I'm in HEAVEN!

This blanket is STUNNING! I think it would still be as beautiful in any color! I'm going to try to work it asap. )

i am going to be starting this one tonight can not wait to see how it comes out

I love the name alone. Don't even get me started on how gorgeous the pattern is!

This one is on my list for sure. I have seen a lot of afghan patterns but this is still one of my very favorites.

Have you tried this craft? What did you think?

I haven't made this "yet" but I cannot wait until I can find an empty spot in my time schedule to do so. What with twin grandsons born last May 7th, and identical twin grand daughters due to come this coming March, and raising 5 grandchildren presently, time I do not foresee a time slot coming open any time soon. But I can't wait to make it.

Is this gauge correct? I cannot see how 17 stitches and 14 rows equals 2 inches. I've been trying to achieve that, and even with a size E hook I'm at about 3-4 inches. Has anyone made this? Is this gauge accurate?

Did you end up making this with a G hook? I had the same question concerning the gauge. It does not seem correct. I would love to hear how your's turned out.

I too have a problem with the gauge. I did the 17st/14rd and ended up with a 7cm (about3inches) square. Since I had no idea if my wool was the right weight, I figured on doing less repeats to have the blanket dimensions. Now that I have done a couple repeats, I measured again to compute how many repeats I should do and found more than the instructions ! Did you ever get an answer ?

As you say, it's AWESOME!!!!!!! I cannot wait to start it.!!!11111111111
