What shades of blue were used here? I really like them together, but they are never named.

Hi there! Unfortunately this yarn was discontinued so it's a little challenging to find the right colors! This link shows some thumbnails of the original colors: http://www.ravelry.com/yarns/library/bernat-berella-4-solids--ragg And this link offers substitution suggestions: http://yarnsub.com/yarns/bernat/berella_4_ombres I hope that helps! -Editors of FaveCrafts

When I first saw this pattern I knew I had to try it. My husbands favorite color is blue, with this pattern being three shades of blue, I knew he would love it. I thought it would be difficult and was nervous when I started, but quickly realized it was not difficult and it turned out beautifully. Thank you for sharing your pattern!

Have a question about step 4. Should I fasten off after ch3 of A and before I begin with yarn B? If not what should I be doing? Love this pattern and so want to try doing it but getting stuck. Please HELP!

Hi there - this is an original pattern from Bernat Yarn. We suggesting contacting them via their website (yarnspiration.com) or social media channels for project-specific help. Thanks! - Julia from FaveCrafts

Bueno, me parece hermoso su manta en azul y blanco,y perdneme pero casi no entiendo las indicaciones escritas entonces me gustaria si puede regalarme el tutorial le agradezco mucho. Bendiciones

I am stuck on step 4, I was hoping someone could send me a link to explain how to do that step? Also what are the acronyms WS and RS? Thanks!

WS is "wrong side" and RS is "right side"

I'm working on this in Aran and two shades of purple. It's looking pretty awesome. I wish the patterns were available in PDF format though.

I made this in shades of greys, to match my family room Gorgous!!!!!
