3 V-sts + 4 rows = 6 in. (15 cm) in pattern with 3 strands of yarn held together. BE SURE TO CHECK YOUR GAUGE. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make a 4 in. [10 cm] square, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

How many chain sets to make this bigger? More of a blanket than a throw

I agree with Busy Jean that 2 strands would be better. I've considered making this several times but put it off for other projects. Now that I hear how well it works up with 2 strands, I think I'll make one for my son for Christmas. Although I love the VW yarn, it's just too pricey for such small quantity on a skein. The Red Heart With Love is super soft and the skeins are large, so may go with that. Happy hooking, everyone!

I am confused and hope someone can help...am I making a v st in every ch in the 2nd row or every other ch? This is the part I do not understand: (dc, ch 1, dc) in each ch-1 sp across, Thanks in advance.

In reading the instructions I can't see where you need 6 large eye blunt needles. Other than that I think I will try this one.

Please correct the pattern to show the correct amount of balls of yarn to use for this project! Thank you!

I too hate it when there is an error in the pattern. The 5 skein each color is probably right as VC yarn is 170 yards per skein. I might opt for another type yarn, such as pound of love & two more of whatever sparked my fancy at the moment. You could also consider one of the pre-textured yarns such as RH Fiesta & just triple up on it. Tangled yarn should not be a problem if you center pull & keep them on ends. Stuff them in a plastic coffee can if you have a problem with them "wandering".
