WOW! I've always shied away from anything like this because I've seen it with "I can only have it out during the holiday season" eyes. With this pattern that may be changing!!! I love the whole idea of weaving along with crochet. I may make up one of these with the color scheme as is and then play with the color scheme on the next one!

This blanket looks so complicated, yet it isn't. I love plaid and this blanket will be perfect. I like the weaving because you have instant fringe. Making fringe is one of my least favorite parts so that alleviates that. Thank you.

I understand the weaving and have done 15 rows so far. Comparing it to the remainder of the afghan I seemed to have lost about 5-6 inches of length. Is this normal?

I don't understand the weaving part. Are you weaving all through the blanket?

Turned out beautiful!

I would love to make this smaller and use as a scarf. Plaid is very popular this season.

When weaving, how do you secure the yarn you've woven?

It's the instructions for weaving in I don't get. Do I take the 3 strands I'm supposed to weave in order from the list given by "A" and do the weaving? so it's B E B, C D C then B E B each time through the 5 times then 3 times repeats over and over? and what do i do with the 9 inches left over in the fringe area? just blend them in? I do hope you can make this a little more understandable because I really want to make this blanket. Thank you. Pat Lisenbee
