Could you tell me if these instructions are English or American - wondering whether to stick to DC or change it to a TR Thank you

Hello, I believe the pattern is American. If you have any other questions, let us know!

I really like this blanket. What weight are the skeins needed? I want to buy the right amount of yarn. Thanks

I think this is a great variation on an old standby, making it a brand-new idea!

I made this afghan using up yarn ends to clear out my 'stash.' It was easy to coordinate the order of the colors and my granddaughter uses it on her guest bed as a coverlet.

I would make this corner to corner afghan. Easy and very pretty, plus you can make it in any size you need....lap, full size afghan, or for baby.

Love - Love - Love this pattern ... we have made 3 plus it makes gorgeous baby blankets!

I made one for my brother and one for my sister. I took me a little longer to make. I guess that was because I made both afghans large enough to cover a queen size bed. They turned out beautiful. I am in the process of making one for my daughter now.

I have mad this pattern before. I have this pattern with a Teddy Bear in the bottom left corner. It is crocheted right in the pattern. I made one for all the Grandchildren and other relatives for crib blankets. As they grow it will also fit a single bed. I really love this pattern of stitch.

Love this afghan will look great in my grandsons room!

Made this about a month ago. Love the design detail. Diagonal stripes - what a teriffic way to say I different. Even a beginer could catch on to the pattern and stitch with pleasure. Finished it in just 4 days.
