Crochet Building Blocks Throw Pattern


(music playing) Welcome back to The Crochet Crowd, as well as my friends over at Yarnspirations.com. Gotta great little pattern for you. It’s called the Building Blocks Throw, designed by Nanette, for Red Heart With Love Yarn. This one here is a really fun kind of kid based afghan. Also, if you got a grown-up like me, this is very nostalgic of having the building blocks. And there are four different types of blocks, and we’re gonna talk about each. But I’m only gonna demonstrate one, because once you get the idea, you can do the other three on your own. Today’s video we’re gonna show you how to do the one block. I’m going to show you how to do the assembly. Also going to show you how to do the border today. In order to play today, you can use Red Heart With Love. I’m going to be using Caron One Pound Yarn today, and a five and a half millimeter size, “I” crochet hook in order to play. So without further ado, let’s go back into this pattern. Let’s take a look, and see what you’re gonna get yourselves into, today. So within today’s pattern you’re going to notice that there is four different types of blocks. So let’s show you my little paper that I made for you today, and there you go. So what we have, is that we have a block with one dot. We have a block with two dots. Four dots, and six dots. They’re all doing the grain of going back and forth, in the rows, like so. So the only difference is you change the number of chain counts when you’re going to start these. So you’re going to notice that I put on the number eleven around here. This one has 24 and 11. 24 24. 37 and 24. So if you wanna take a screenshot now, it’s your time to do it. This is telling you how many stitches that you’re going to do the final round, because these blocks have a final border around each of them, and that’s the stitch count you’re to match to. So you’re going to notice that on the corners, there’s three single crochets, and it will tell you how many rows, uh stitches that you need to equally space. So when you’re going down the sides, of these blocks, you’re going to have to equal, have to equally space the number of stitches that goes along the top or the bottom borders, in order for it to match, so it can puzzle together. So that’s what those numbers mean. So just make sure that you don’t count the single crochets, like I’ve shown you here. Don’t count this thing, the single crochets that are in the corner, as part of that count. Those are the ones that are on their own. Let’s take a closer look at the pattern, right behind here. So when you’re looking at this pattern you’re going to notice dot one, two dot, four dot and six dot. The reality is here folks. Is that when you go to look at these kind of concepts, you’re going to notice that there is just two rows. There’s either a single crochet row, or a half double crochet, and they just keep alternating. And each one will tell you how many rows that you need to do. So for the one dot here, it’s saying that you need to do 13 rows before doing the final row, the border. So obviously these will change in different sizes. So two dots is basically the double width of this, and then you’ll see that it will just change. So my sheet that I just showed you has those counts on there, but also it’s kind of written here in the pattern. It’s not actually written on the two dot, and the six dot, and that’s why I came up with that little sheet for you, that you have here. So take that screenshot now, if you’d like to print that out later, and it’s something that I think will come in handy for you. So we just have to concentrate on the number of rows in order to do this. So you wanna do all of your blocks first, and then you can just alternate the colors that you want. So if you look on page number two, you’re gonna see the layout here, and it looks just like this, just like the sample. And if you’re creative, and you wanna change the layout, just grab some graph, uh some graph paper, and just make it so. (lol) It’s very star trekky, right? So make it so, and you can play with even more colors, if you want to, and this is kind of a really cool idea. So without further ado, let’s start on block number one, or sorry dot number one. And that is the concept, and for doing the rest, you just have to change your stitch counts right at the beginning chain, when you go to start. So let’s get going. And enough chitter-chatter. (lol) And let’s say get on with it. So let’s create a slipknot to begin. So the only difference between dot one, two, four and six, is the number of chains, and you’ll find that on the pattern. So for dot number one, which is only 1 dot, we’re gonna chain 14. So let’s do that. So 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 and 14. So when you do that, and your chaining 14, when you go to start this one in row number 1, and so let’s do that. We’re gonna go second chain from the hook. Grab the back, hump of the chain, and just single crochet in that. So when you go for the second stitch, that means that you’ll have only 13 stitches across. So if you chained 14, and go second chain in the hook to start, it means that you’ll end up missing one of the chains. Which makes sense, right? So if you chain 14 you only have 13 stitches, etc. So we’re just gonna single crochet along the back hump of the chain, all the way back, to the very beginning. And you should have a total count of 13. And I’d probably count it, just for the sake of these blocks, just the first time to make sure that you got it right, and then we’re going to then, work our way through the rest of this pattern. So we’re gonna be alternating between half double crochet, and single crochet. And you’re gonna notice something is really off with the half double crochet, which I’ll explain, and it’s probably part of the reason why it’s going off to the side. So I’ll show you that in just a moment. So please single crochet all the way to the end. And you’ll do this for all the blocks, of course. And when you get to the last one just insert there, and I’m gonna show you something, that is not so obvious on the, on the pattern. So don’t adjust your camera. There you are. So you’re gonna notice that the block is off on to the side a little bit. That’s natural because of the half double crochet that’s used. So when you go to join this with the other blocks, it will straighten out. Okay, so that’s something that you will see happening, and you’re thinking what’s going on. It’s not you, it’s this, and so you just got to be paying attention to that. So now what we’re going to do, is that when we start a half double crochet row, it’s very unusual, it says that you’re going to chain one, and then put half double crochets across. It’s usually always chaining a two, but they’re only having it one, which could be the one of the reasons why it’s going off to the side, but it’s gonna work out. So I won’t even go and put a lot of thought to it. But if you see it going off to the side, don’t quit, it’s not you, it’s this. So let’s start row number two. Okay, so we just finished row number one, and I’m gonna turn my work. So every other row is going to be something unique. So in this case, it’s gonna be a half double crochet. So you’re gonna chain up one, and in the same stitch you just came out of, right there, you’re just gonna do a half double crochet in that one, and half double crochet in all of the stitches across. Now when I go to design projects, I actually try to leave a half double crochet out. It’s one of those stitches that, um I always struggle with identifying the last stitch, um of the half double crochet. Um it kind of drives me batty. So, and I noticed when I do a lot of my stitch along stuff, um, my summer stitch along, is I find a lot of people screw up, and it’s usually a half double crochet round that they’re doing it on. And honestly, it’s, it’s not, (lol) it’s the stitch honestly, because I screw it up too. So it’s um people kind of beat themselves up that they’re not getting the counts right. Chances are it’s probably the stitch. So just half double crochet right into the very last one. So that was row number two. So simply turning your work, and let’s move up to row number three. Just chain one. And this row is just a single crochet row. So what I want you to do, is that I want you to alternate between a single crochet row, and a half double crochet row, and then your thirteenth row will, it should be the single crochet row, and that’s where you’re gonna finish, and you’re gonna hold, and wait for me there. And then I’m just going to do this off camera, and when I get up there, I will show you what to do in order to do the final round, and that’s that fun little paper that I showed you, that you can do a printout of, if you wish. So the very last one, don’t forget you have to go into this last one here, for a single crochet, and then turn your work. So you can kind of see it’s going up on an angle already. So then, this time, it’s chain one and it’s half double crochet. So please do that for the number of rows that you either have. So for the one dot, it’s going to be 13 rows, of alternating. For the two dots, it’s going to be 13 rows. And for the four dots, it’s going to be, um 26 rows. And then for the six dots, it’s also going to be 26 rows. And then when I come back I’ll have this ready to go, and I’ll show you how to do once around, and then we’re gonna then move on, and I’ll show you how to do the joining of these with each other. So I’ve now just finished row number 13. So the last row is a single crochet row. So it’s just a matter of keeping the count. So half double crochet, single crochet. So that’s where I’m ending. So you’ll notice that it looks like it’s on an angle. That’s because it is. And it’s the half double crochet, but you know you just stretch it out, and it will balance out, and once you put a border on it, it’ll get a lot better. So let’s do our final of, uh the final round. I’m gonna bring back the sheet to verify again of what we’re going to do, what our action plan is, just in case you’re doing the two dot, four dot or six dot. So let’s do that next. So I brought back my cheat sheet. So with the one dot here, I’m looking to have 11 stitches across from, between the corners. So the corners have three single crochets in each. That’s not included in these counts. So I’m looking for 11. So the bottom and the top. So the bottom, sorry the, (lol) bottom and the top each already will have 11 between the corners. So the sides when I go down, I wanna get 11 equally spaced, as I’m going down the sides. So for the two dot here, you’re going to have 24 stitches going across, and then for the tops here, because it’s only a two dot, you want 11. So, because they’re gonna match each other when they puzzle together. Then for the four dots, you’re looking for 24, across. See how they’re going to match this two dot. So 24, because it’s a square. And then for the 6 dot here, it’s gonna be 24 on the one side, and then 37 on the others. And then it will all work itself out, and you’ll have a gay old time. So let’s begin, and we’re going to go around the final time, and this is round 14, on the first dot, and the other rounds it’s also 14 for the two dots, and it’ll be then round number 27, for both the four dots, and the six dot versions. So let’s begin. We’re going to just turn our work. So we turned at the end, and now this row we’re gonna go all the way around. So when you start off your first one you’re gonna chain up one, and because you’re in a corner, you’re gonna put in three single crochets. So one two three. And now there should be eleven stitches between here, and the final stitch is the corner. So there’s 11 stitches in here. Hopefully (lol) that’s right. So let’s just count it out, and pray. So that was, this is gonna be two three four five six seven eight nine ten and eleven. (lol) Look at that, eh. Thanks for the prayers. And so at the very last stitch that you have there, is going to be your corner. So you’re going to put in three single crochets there. So one two and three. So this is where people get worried. So now this is a side here, and there’s no, um center, set, you’ve got to make your stitches. So you’re gonna have to figure out, and equally space 11 single crochets here, and the very last one here is going to be your three single crochets. So, um, I’m pretty good at eying stuff out. So let’s just try, try it out and see what happens. So just equally spaced. So just start counting. So one two three four five. And see how five I should be pretty close to the middle of this? So then six seven eight nine ten and eleven. Look at that, eh. (a little squeal) It’s exciting when that happens. So the very last one here I’m just gonna put in three single crochets, which will be the top there. And one two and three. And now I’m gonna go along the bottom, and so there should be eleven there, before I get to the farthest side. So because I had you go in the back loop only, you’re gonna see exactly beautiful stitches. So let’s count those out just for the fun of it. So this is gonna be two three four five six seven eight nine ten. (giggle) Look at that. The last stitch here is number, oh, oh, oh, oh. Hang on, I think I might have screwed up. So one two three four five six seven eight nine ten eleven. Oh, it is 11. See? Now I’m getting all excited. So the very last stitch is the corner. So we’re just gonna, go right up over top of that straggler. So just go and put in three there. And so, you’ve already seen that I’ve equally spaced it before, putting uh 11 single crochets up, and then the very final stitch here. Uh, I might as well do the final row, with the final side. So let’s just count them. So one two. See I’m going over over top of the straggler? It just saves me sewing it in later. So three four five six seven eight nine ten and 11. It’s almost a gamble really. So you got 11 there. So the corner is where you started, so just slip stitch to the very beginning, and then that will conclude. So this will be your right side of the project, on how you did your border. So what I’m going to do, is that I’m going to just trim off my yarn, and let me show you how I’m gonna weave in the ends. You wanna do this for this particular project. For all of them. Especially if you have the child playing with this thing. So let’s uh begin. So we’re just gonna throw it into a tapestry needle. And keeping it on the back side, just glide it through the project three times. So just go once twice and three times. And once you get it in three times you can just safely cut it right down into the project, and then you don’t have to worry about a child, or a MAN baby, (Mikey giggles loudly) pulling out your, your ends. I don’t even know why I said that. So here we go. So this is the good side. So just give it a good stretch. Try to make it as square as you can. So what’s missing, do you think? Obviously the dot. So let’s, uh cover doing the dot next. And those are, the dots are the same for each one of those, so you’re gonna do it in the same color, if you want to. If you want to change the color, it’s completely up to you too. So let’s do the dot next. So we’re now going to make the dot. So here’s a choice. You have two choices. You can do a dot here, that’s nice and flat. So if you’ve got a child that is going to possibly, um mess up your afghan, and you need to wash it. You may wanna consider just sewing it down to the surface like this. You can also apply some poly fill behind it, and make it raise up if you want to. And uh, then it will just really kind of stand off. I know it’s hard to see that one, but it’s really make it stand off. You have to decide what’s important, because from a distance is still going to look like a building block. But if you put polyfill, it obviously will jump up. And the way that they’ve designed the dot, you could put polyfill in, and that’s meant to do that. So let’s, without further ado, let’s get on, and do a dot together. So the dots are nice, and quick, and easy. And they’re actually pretty easy to sew onto the project too. And now when I say, well things are easy, you know some tutorial hosts, everything is friggin easy. I try not over ex, uh overstating how easy things are, unless I really truly feel like it is easy. So this is one of those things, because I sometimes think they tell you it’s easy, and you’re racking your brain. (Mikey giggles) Anyway, I digressed. Let’s continue on with the dot. So we’re just gonna start it. It says to chain one, but I’m gonna have you change the instruction right here. Just chain two. One two. It’s just easier, and just go into the second chain from the hook. And I want you to apply six single crochets, but don’t join it. So one two three four five, uh five and six. Now you could have done a magic circle if you wish as well. That’s completely up to you. So don’t email me, and ask me that. Just do it. Um yeah. So, you know you can always have choices that make sense. So on the sixth one here that we just finished, just take out the hook, and put in a stitch marker there. We’re gonna do a continuous round, so that there is no slip stitching involved in the top of these dots. So you don’t see it. Let’s move on to round, the next round, round number two. Starting in the first one. If you’re not sure just count it back. So one two three four five six. And that’s gonna be the starting one. I always find after the first time going around, it’s always hard to get that one stitch in there, but just take your time. It’s not a rush. There’s no point to finishing this afghan faster than anybody else. And apply just two, single crochets into each one of the stitches, going all the way around to the stitch marker. So what I like to do, for myself in my own head, if you want to be scared, is that I’ve just done two. So now this is the third one, and in my head I go three and three. I don’t know why I do it, and then the next one is four and four. And the next one is five and five. And the next one is six and six. And it seems to make sense to me in my head. (Mikey giggles) But I told you it’s a scary place to live. So I not sure, I should be passing that advice. So once you get your sixth, the second one of the sixth one done, just simply move up your stitch . And let’s move on to round number three. So let’s do the third round here. So we’re gonna start off with the first one. So here’s how I count it in my head. I’ve already just revealed how scary my head could be. So we’re gonna start off in the first one, and I say, um I go one. Okay, and now the next one will have two in it. So then I go two, and two. Okay, now the next one has one. And then the next one after that has two and two. So one two and two. And I’m kind of feeling sorry for my, uh Close Captioning person uh, (lol) Diane, she’s gonna have to type this stuff out. So we have one, and two, and two. And one, and two, and two. And then finally one. And see where the stitch marker is? That’s the second one. So it’s two and two, and I know I’m right. So move that stitch marker up one last time. And the last round is just quite simple. We’re gonna play in the back loops only, and that’s gonna allow you to put polyfill in behind it, if you wish. So starting on the very next one, in the back loop. So if you’re new to crochet, there’s two strands that make up a stitch. If you go in the first strand, it’s the front loop right there, and if you go into the the other strand behind there, that’s the back loop. So you’re just gonna apply one single crochet in each one of the back loops around, and this will allow you to raise up your, your dots, if you want to. It kind of naturally gives a bend in the project. So if you notice in clothing when they have you do back loops and stuff, it allows you to have like turns, whether it’s a cuff, or in a collar. So you’re just doing one in each. And, finally at the end, when I get there in just a second, is that we are going to finish off on the last one that’s marked with the stitch marker, but we’re going to slip stitch to the one right after it. Just to bring it in balance. Okay, this is the stitch marked one, so technically it’s the last one, and then just go to the very next one, and slip stitch it. Now when you go to cut this yarn, you want to, uh, um, you want to leave an extra long tail, so that you can use that to sew it down into your square. So just pulling it through, and that will be your sewing strand, and then pull out your stitch marker. So you may want to do all your dots. Um, and when you go to sew these, because you’re using the same color that is in the block, you’ll notice that it’s really nicely easy. And we’re going to then, apply that to the square next. So let’s get ready to sew. So make sure that you turn it so that the right side of the last border is facing you, and you’re just going to lay it down on top. So just look at the projects, and just equally space it, if you got like the two, four, or six dot. I’m just, I’m just looking at where its lining up on the upper and bottom. And all I’m just going to do, is that I’m just going to, kind of grab it, like this. And I’ve already fed it on to my tapestry needle, and I’m just gonna take the first one and go right back in, to the project, right in behind, and then coming back out, I wanna only just grab the one strand. And then I wanna jump to the next one. And then keep on going around. So just, uh just kind of eye it up. Just lay it flat if you have to, just to check it once in a while. And just sew this all the way around. If you want to put a polyfill in it, just make sure that before you finish it, you just stuff some polyfill underneath it, and it will stick up, and that’s a good way to go. So meet me back here in just a moment, and I’ll see you, and I’ll show you how to finish it off on the backside. So my dot’s now put on the front. Now if you have a toddler, or a grown up saying that your dots aren’t in the middle. Just tell them they have too much time on their hands. (big giggles) Give them a crochet hook, and yarn, and tell them to do it right. Okay, so just, once it comes to the back, okay, just glide it through to the middle of its, because then it will be hidden underneath the dot. Right? So just gliding it through, once, and now because this is going to be given to somebody, chances are, um just glide it back and forth. I would do it four times for the dot, because people might pick at it. Just a test to see if you actually sewed it down right. (Mikey giggles) Again, if they’re doing that, they have way too much time on their hands. So go back and forth a total of four times, in this particular case. Usually three satisfactory, but I would recommend four. People just naturally want to touch stuff. (lol) So back and forth three times, and then you can cut it right down into the project, and they’ll never see it. Isn’t that a miracle? So there is the dot, there. I think I might be off to the side a little bit, but that’s okay, and now you can see there. So now I’m gonna show you how to put these things together. And once you have all your blocks done, you’ll be ready to do. And so let me go through the action plan of putting these things together. So let’s go through the action plan of putting these together. So you wanna get all your blocks done. And they have the layout. So if you want to change it as I mentioned, you can do that as well. Just probably on graph paper. Now what I would look for, is things like this. So do you see how the line goes all the way across? I would look for stuff like that, where you could just go all the way across. So just joining things as you go. Like this. The ones that will be a little more complex, are these ones that are the single dots right here. Um, but once you, you have to do them kind of individually, as you’re, you’re getting ready. So I would do all the long ones first of joining things together. Then we turn it, and then do all the long ones going in the opposite direction. It seems like they’re all joining in that direction that way, and then just do all the individuals that didn’t get picked up, um because they’re individuals. So let’s continue then, and there is no sewing of these together. It’s all just single crochet join, and let me show you how that’s gonna be done. And I’m gonna use a fun other color, next. So let’s go, and put this together. So create a slipknot first, and I’m gonna show you a standing single crochet. So starting on the very first one, you wanna just kind of butt them up together. So you will notice that the single crochets, the greens are all going in the same direction. You can technically turn’em, if they want to, just the grains will go in a different direction. That’s kind of your, uh your call. So I’m just gonna keep the grains going in the same, because that’s what it shows. So you wanna go in the middle one of the grouping of three in the corner. So a middle one, and then just go on the opposite one here, and grab the middle. Let’s do a standing single crochets. So to do that, put it a slip knot onto the hook first, and then yarning over, pulling it through, but don’t pull it through the first loop yet, and just yarn over, pull through two, and then that’s a standing single crochet. So I always find like joining it, and then chaining one, and then doing a single crochet. It always looks like a mess. So anyway, that’s just kind of my thought. Lay down the straggler, down on top, and go to the next stitch available on the first square, and go to the next stitch available on the, the square in behind, and single crochet. So because you’ve gone through a border, through each one of your blocks, these stitches should line up. However, if something distracted you, and one is just slightly missing, here’s how you can cheat the system. So let’s just say that the one block is going to be longer than the other. Here’s how you get rid of it without actually, don’t tell anybody I’m showing you this either. So let’s just say that the green block is a little bit longer than the red. So I would go back into the red where I’ve already gone in before, going to the red, and advance one, next into the green. And technically there will be two in there, but when it’s laying down, and laying flat, it’s hardly noticeable. So it’s a great way of doing it, instead of being really disappointed in yourself, and never finishing your project. There are always ways to be able to cheat the system when it comes to crochet. You are the artist. Um you can make decisions that are really up to you. So once you get enough in there, you can just fold them together, and just simply just go across, and single crochet. So the border consists of only five rounds. And they will be alternating between single crochet rounds, and uh half double crochet rounds, and then the final is a slip stitch round, which will get to. So end on the middle of the single crochet, of a corner. Just like so. And if you’re had another block, just jump to the next block immediately, and just line them all up. But if it’s the very end, just simply cut your, your project, and then just throw it onto a tapestry needle. And just weave in your ends, back and forth three times. So just glide it up underneath the stitches. So don’t you dare, mess with the top edge look, because it always be in your face, if you see it. So stay underneath the stitches, and pass by one, and when you pull on it the first time, don’t change the shaping of it by pulling on too hard. And then going back a second time. And finally a third time. And then once you’re in there three times, you can simply just chain, uh cut your strand, and you’re good to go. So you’ll see that there’s now joining. So let’s cover on how to do the border, uh itself. So once everything is together, we’re gonna do a beautiful border, around. So let’s start on the border. Number one. So round one. And what I would do, is I would start, okay, just choose any corner of your afghan. So you’re only going to four corners, because everything is assembled at this point. And you’re just gonna go into the middle one, and you’re going to just pull through. And you can do a standing single crochet there too. So just pull through, and then pull through two. That’s a standing single, and just put in two more single crochets there. So I wanna show you a trick when you’re jumping between the blocks. So now it’s just simply one single crochet in each one of the stitches. Noticing that I’m going up over top of the straggler, so it stays underneath and buries in. And the trick is when you jump over block to block, that you actually capture the stitches, you need to catch, in order to keep the look consistent. Notice that I use the same color as the joining? So see how this one is a part of this? I’m going into this one, and then I’m jumping into the other block, where the other one is joined already, and then I’m just gonna keep on maintaining it, and that’ll pull everything nice and tight together. So you’re just gonna single crochet yourself all the way across. Where you need to jump, you jump, and then on the corners you’re just going to apply, three single crochet, into the, uh middle corner stitches. Okay, so this is the middle. So there’s gonna be three in there, and that will allow you to turn, and then you’ll work your way up through this second edge, and every time you’re jumping over, just uh handle it, and then I’ll see you at the end of this round, where I’ll show you how to finish off, and then we’ll move on to round number two, three, four and five. So I’ve just come all the way around, and now I’m gonna join it to the beginning single crochet, the standing single crochet I showed you. So, it’s telling you to change colors. So you can change color. If you don’t want to change color. It’s completely your business. And you’re just going to just pull through. And I would just weave in these ends, because you’re gonna go up over top of them anyway. So round number two, we’re gonna do a half double crochet. So let’s just change the color for the fun of it. So I’ll go back to green. It’s easier to see. So I’m just gonna change the color. And we’re gonna start off in the middle stitch, of, of the corner, and we’re going to chain two. So in this type, it counts as a half double crochet. So one and two. Okay, and that’s a half double crochet. That counts as a half double crochet, and then I’m gonna half double crochet two more times. And all I’m doing now, is because I established all the stitch work already in the last round, it’s just a matter of following it all the way around, and you’re just gonna do a half double crochet. So in the corners, you’re just going to apply three half double crochets in the corners, and then just keep on going. So I don’t need to actually go all the way around here to show you. So here’s the the deal. Okay, so you’re gonna then come all the way around, and you’re gonna slip stitch it. You’re gonna go another round of all the way of doing, um single crochet, and then you’re gonna finish that one off, and then you’re gonna do one more round of half double crochet. So you got single, half, single, half, and then the very final round, it’s asking you to do a slip stitch uh round. So let me show you how to how that’s done, because it’s actually pretty simple. So you’re thinking why would you finish off a round with the, um single crochet like that, or uh slip stitch. And it looks really unique. So let’s just say we’re gonna do it, because we are. Right? So if you do that, if you go into the regular stitch as normal, and you join. Okay, you’re just going to slip stitch. So just starting in the next one, and just slip stitch. Okay, and then slip stitch. And what are you gonna notice? You’re gonna notice that when you slip stitch like this, this round, it actually sits on top of the other one. Okay, so it’s actually sitting right on top of this stitch. So if you look at the outside edge, you still see the green, but it’s just a surface overlay that is covering over, over top like this, and it looks pretty cool. So when you get all the way around you’re just gonna slip stitch it to the very starting one. And then that’s it. This afghan would be then complete. So if you wanna omit anything, or change the border, it’s easy to do that. If you wanna get rid of these single, uh slip stitching, you can do that too. You are the artist after all, and it’s a really neat idea. So until next time, it’s Mikey on behalf of The Crochet Crowd, as well as my friends over at Yarnspiration.com Have a great day, and we hope to see you again, real soon. Bye-bye. (music playing)

  3. I love this blanket and I just fell in love with Red Heart with love yarn!! I can’t wait to make this for my Grandboys!!

  4. wow cool. my Eight year old son would just live this !, did not know u could do this design. my son likes to play with his Legos lol so I should make him a nice cozy one 👍😉😊

  5. I’m currently on the 4 square dot and 6 dot rectangle. On the 27th row it says “do not turn” do you think that’s a typo?

  6. I'm sure I must be doing something wrong. My 6 dot squares are 37 stitches. When you lay 3-1 dot squares above, that's only 33 stitches. I am short 1 Square on each row that doesn't have a 6 dot square. I plan to fix it by adding 4 white 1 dot squares but that doesn't show me what I've done wrong 😾🙀 Anyone else have this issue?

  7. I had to come back and say….it must have been caused by tension on that one block because the rest of them were fine. I redid it and it fits right as it should. Now I'm a happy camper.
