I'm very happy with the progress of this blanket. This is a work of art. I'm using Red Heart, and am finding that the color quantities (ounces) called for are sufficient to make multiple blankets. The written instructions are somewhat useless to the novice, so I recommend researching tapestry crochet and working swatches for the sections with incorporated design. I offer up a site that is really helpful. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uIX7gGW79Bw. It's more slow-going, but well worth the meticulous effort, as the blanket is absolutely stunning. Between the charts and the photograph, I have plenty to go by.

Also, the stitch gauge for a size G hook doesn't jibe with my tension, which is firm but not deliberately tight, so instead of 218 stitches, I've increased the foundation chain to 304 stitches, which produces a width of 67 inches. I use an inline (Susan Bates)aluminum hook, size G.

I did use the recommended yarn for this gorgeous blanket. The amount of yarn called for in the pattern makes TWO of these blankets with yarn left over.

This is a beautiful blanket. I have found that the amount of yarn needed is grossly overestimated by the pattern. I recommend that, before buying all the yarn, estimate the amount needed by crocheting a portion, undoing it, and measuring the yarn needed per stitch. The instruction is minimalist, so beginners may need help from some more experienced crocheters.

My husband is in love with this blanket. I used Red Heart for it and it stitched up nicely.

Be very prepared for some beautiful results. Worked row by row, connecting at the beginning each time. I bought all the yarn at the start of my project because I knew it was going to take a while and the colors would change or not be available. Not using recommended yarn, I am using the Red Heart Super Saver and it's working up great. Thank you so much for this challenging pattern!
