Such a pretty pattern! I can hardly believe it says "beginner". This is a wonderful color combo and it seems as though there are others that would work up just as nicely depending on your tastes and preferences! I was wondering if anyone has had any difficulties with handling 4 threads of yarn at once? I bet that makes this really warm and snuggly!

A friend of mine made me this exact one 40 years ago and it looks as great as ever. I use it all the time. Love It

I'm just starting to get into crochet, and this pattern inspires me to want to learn more. Beautiful!

I need the directions for a queen size bed. Thank you.

This pattern is wonderful!!! Thanks so much. I crochet blanket for local charities and have made at least 4 with different colors... Thanks again.

I'm inspired by Cheryl Y and Kate Abbey. The pattern says beginner so this must be a walk in the park for veteran crocheters like me. Thanks for the pattern found right here on the page.

Love, love this quick and easy crochet pattern. After reading the pattern and the other comments I'm going to make mine with just two strands of yarn, the light green and white to make it lighter. Thank you for the free pattern and looking forward to a rainy day..

If you use only 2 strands of yarn what size hook would you recommend?

This looks like the perfect project for a rainy afternoon, really easy and quick!

It would be great to have the instructions to the quick and easy white blanket pictured, instead of the mile-a-minute one.

The instructions are for the "white one pictured. You just can't see the other colors as you are holding all 4 stands of yarn at once. The mile-a-minute node is made with panels that you see together. I thought it strange myself until I saw the colors in the store and saw how the frosty green is very white with a tinge of green that's only seen up close

agree very disappointing

I am excited to start this one. But, I am going to use 2 strands only because I don't want it too bulky.

It's quick! Made it in a day, but it is so heavy that it is just not practical.However, I may someday use the pattern with one strand of yarn.

Brilliant love it
