    Hello, I'm Inge from Belgium and I hooked today 1 square, but now i want to do the edging I don't realy understand : Do I have to crochet the 5dc in the same stitch? Do you mean with the corner the space between the 2tr?

    Asked by: Inge
    HI. The edging round will help to create a square pillow, the 5 dc are working in the corner. Edging Round: Ch 3, *5 dc in corner, work 58 sc evenly spaced across side to next corner; repeat from * around; join with sl st in top of beginning ch. Fasten off.

    I’ve had to restart this pattern 5 times and can’t figure out how to make the spirals. The pattern says that “1/2 the circle will be one colors &the other 1/2 will be the alternate color”. How does that create a spiral??? 

    Asked by: Myresen
    Hi. This is such a unique pattern, I love the way the spirals look. Make sure you read all of the notes for this pattern, they are very important. As you work each round you will change colors to create the spiral effect, you will need to work a number of rounds before you see how the spiral will look. I would recommend taking a couple of odd balls of yarn that you have and work up one complete motif to see how it works before you start your blanket. Good luck.

    Maybe I missed something, but I don't see instructions that say how long the starting chain is supposed to be.

    Asked by: Bee4
    Hello, The pattern starts here: SQUARE #1 (make 3) Note: The A-colored spiral is worked in double crochet, and the B-colored spiral is worked in single crochet. With B, ch 2. Thank you.
