When you're doing the border do you hdc in the front or back post? Or is it just the stitches above the row?

I'm making this blanket now and I love it so far. The only issue I'm having is that I've already used about 2 1/2 balls of yard and I've only got about 8 inches of blanket done. Is there something I'm doing wrong?

I'm working on this blanket right now. It's going to be a gift. It's so much prettier in person. I'm using the combo with lilac in it. Not very difficult and it works up very quickly. (Which is a good thing, because my grandson loves the way it feels and wants one of his own.)

What does " 1 dc in top of turning" mean?

No. The six pertains to the weight of the yarn - how heavy it is. This is a heavy-weight yarn........ Little Cosmo is the name of the yarn to use, and you need 4 balls of that yarn to make the blanket. As to where to find the book about understanding patterns I can't help with that. I do know there are places on the internet that have the information... just do a search for it. Finding the blog is super easy. Just look at the header and click where you see the word blog.

I know this sounds stupid but I dont understand the pattern mostly how to read the supplies. This is 6 of one yarn and 4 little cosmo balls? I saw a book on here about reading/understanding patterns but cant find it. There is a blog? Cant find it. Your site is packed with beautiful work and I am itching to make this. Any advice? I last crochetted 30 years ago...
