Good morning. Love this blanket. Please can I check for the striped square, should the work be turned at the end of every row or just row 2? Thank you.

DROPS Design 21.04.2019 kl. 13:35:

Dear Lindyloowho, you turn the work at the end of every row in the striped square. Only the finishing border is worked in round around whole square. Happy crocheting!

I would like too see a video of this that shows the whole process of making the orange blossom Blanket I cannot read patterns and have trouble with reading so having a full version visual tutorail video from beginning too the end is how I learn too do things. I note there are some video links but they dont gel too me watching them so I was wondering if you have a tutorail of this blanket step by step at all.

Christy Wilson-Murray 29.10.2018 - 18:10:

I love the orange blossom throw pattern but was hoping you could tell me the colors that were used in the pink version rather than the orange. Thanks

DROPS Design 30.10.2018 kl. 03:33:

Dear Christy, not sure what you mean by "the pink version" as the colors for eaxh row of each squareis given in the pattern, the orange/red/pink, and the more pinkish colors as well. Happy Crafting!

Cheryl Taylor 10.10.2018 - 15:20:
