Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I just love the look of this Blueberry Mornings Basket Weave Crochet Afghan Pillow. I like that the written pattern is right here and the pictures for each textured stitch is so clear. The print tab works great, thanks! I'm looking forward to making this one and put my skills to the test. I'll be making mine a little longer and wider to fit a queen size bed by doing the pattern 4 or 5 times per row. Has anyone tried to double the pattern? Thank you so much for sharing this beautiful crochet pattern.

Id love to make this but would also want to make it longer. Can someone please help. I have yarn and needle just waiting for the answer. Thank you

Ok I couldn't wait so I've just decided to double the lenght.

I would like to make this longer, how many more chains should I add?

I wanted it longer too so I'm just going to double the chain count. Hope it works.

you can add as many stitches as you like just remember to follow with the pattern from row 4 . You can always undo the extra chains from the beginning .

My cable doesn't look like this one. Is there a way to contact the designer or find a video on YouTube they may have made? I love the pattern and would like to make it for a Christmas gift. Thanks so much.

Is there a print version for these patterns? Thanks.

Here is another beautiful pattern to do..
