I love Kim Guzman's patterns, and I know they will work out if I just follow the written directions. I'm sure this Magical Mist Crochet Throw will come out great! I love the colors used and can't wait to make it. I'll have to wait until after the holidays to start this one. Thank you so much for sharing this free crochet pattern.

I always loved this blue/dark blue/lilac/purple/combination. I want to make this project but probably later. Thanks for the pattern which is just right in front of the page.

I have tried and taken out twice now, it won't lay flat. I'd tried looser and didn't help any idea what I'm doing wrong. I bought the yarn kit too, daughter wants it. PLEASE HELP.

Oh my, if my memory serves me correctly it is supposed to pucker a bit, not lie flat. That is part of its character. This is a Yarnspirations pattern "Magical Mist, or Summer Mist". There is a video https// and you can see after row three (about 10 minutes) there is a slight pucker, she forces it to lie flat. If you want a ripple/wave blanket without the pucker may I suggest Neat Ripple by attic24. beautiful and easy

I made this last fall and used the same colors. Absolutely beautiful.

Is one pound used for all the colors 4 pounds of yarn?

You need the Caron One Pound for each color. I did have a lot left over. Each skein has 812 yds. If you use something else buy enough of each color, save receipts and return any unused skeins.

I simply cut and paste the desired portion of the page into Microsoft Word. Hold down the left mouse button to highlight. When it is correct, click the right mouse button and copy. Open your word processor and right click to paste. Look it over and delete any part of it you do not want. Save the document to your hard drive under whatever name you choose. Then print. You should be able to do this on a tablet and send to a wireless printer if you wish. (I have just started the pattern so I am rating it on it's appearance)

Is there an easy way to print the pattern from a tablet without all of the unrelated information shown on the page? Thanks.

There is a program called Print Friendly. It is free and easy to use. With it you can eliminate all the unnecessary paragraphs, pics and ads.

This is a pattern by Kim Guzman originally called the Summer Mist Throw. I don't know why she is not credited with this pattern. I did a short video on it in July 2014 for some fans that needed the show and tell method. I gave her full credit and a link that is here http// == -throw In the video of her throw, I only did a short piece of the pattern as a add-on to the printed pattern. https// == mBUMW7CBo5Nsnzz1K

Sorry Caron, I see she is shown at the very top. Just in too small for me to read. My apologies

Can you tell me which brand of yarn that was used (the colors and reference numbers)? Thank you

In the "Materials" section it is all Listed. The yarn is by Caron and is called "one pound".

I am about half finished with this afghan. I was making it for a friend but have decided to keep the first one for myself and make her another one. -) I am somewhat of a novice with crocheting and this pattern was not difficult after I figured out the problem with it. I ran into a problem on Rows 3 (and 4 since it's a repeat of 3) and 5. I had to add a skip one stitch before and after the sc3tog in Row 3. And also before and after the tr3tog and before the tr2tog in Row 5. Without these skipped stitches the counts did not come out right and the puff design was not symetrical. I re-did each of those rows about 4 times before I figured out how to fix it but now it looks great. Were there corrections for this pattern that I missed or exactly what did I miss? As I said, after making those changes, I like the afghan and am keeping it as a present to myself.

Thanks for the correction in this pattern I think it looks very pretty and I am going to try it.

Magic Mist Crochet /I don't like this suggested yarn, nor this size of the /Can anyone help with a similar pattern Colors G or H hook?br /

As the pattern is a multiple of 6, plus 2, I suggest you pick the yarn and colors you want along with the recommended hook size, then follow the pattern while ignoring the stitch count. That's what I plan to do to make it bigger and use a different brand of yarn. I hope that helps.

Is there a tutorial of this Magical Misty Throw Cover?
