  1. Hi can you please tell me what the stitches are i live in Australia and know that American stitches are named differently to here.

    1. If Australia has the same terms as the UK, chain and slip stitch are the same.
      US single crochet = UK double crochet
      US double crochet = UK treble crochet
      US front post single crochet = UK front post double crochet
      Basically, whatever the US says, go one step up from that and you will have the UK equivalent. I hope this helps!

    2. Uk conversions are as follows
      Sc (us) – Double (uk)
      Dc (us) – Treble (uk)
      Fpsc (us) – Front Post Double (uk)

  2. I’m trying to download writen instructions for your crystal waves baby afghan pattern as seen on youtube
    I am more interested how to make a larger afghan (child and adult ) with the pattern

    1. The stitch multiple is 4. So, as long as you keep everything in a multiple of 4, you can make your project as big or as small as you would like. I hope this helps!

  3. I am making this pattern for my GGdaughter, but the yarn I WANT to use for the border is 4 weight, the blanket is 3 weight, will it work or not? I am not very know how

    1. You can use whatever weight yarn you have. You just have to adjust the hook size accordingly. If the yarn weight is larger, whatever you are making will generally be larger as well. Hope this helps!

    2. Using heavier yarn will work fine. However the finished afghan will turn out larger. You can change that by just making your starting chain shorter. If you do this, be sure to make the chain evenly divisible by 4.

  4. Can we request a specific pattern for a tutorial video? I’d love one of the frilly, traditional baby bonnets that I can add lace to x

  5. I have been looking at crochet stitches for baby blanket. I have been making and frogging for 3 days when I remembered your hat and the crystal wave stitch I made that and the entire set already for my great grandaughter arriving soon. I am making this in the blanket no more forgiving!! Ty Carmen
