  1. How long is the bottom of the rap, the starting chain? I tried this pattern using the same yarn and needle and 90 chains wasn't nearly enough so I'm trying to figure out what I did wrong. Mine only came out to be about 54 inches at the top of the scarf. I had to unravel it and I'm going to start over

  2. How long is the bottom of the scarf, the starting chain? I tried this pattern using the same needle and yarn but mine wasn't nearly long enough. I started out with 90 chains but the top of the scarf was only about 54 inches. I unraveled it and will start again.

  3. A friend of mine text me this picture off pinterest and asked me how hard it would be. (I am a simple prayer blanket/1 stitch crochet'r and she's wanted to learn, but we just haven't had time to sit down to teach her.) I said looked pretty simple. In the meantime, I was looking at ravelry at something else and saw this pattern and clicked on it and it brought me to your lovely site! And like I thought, this is very easy to do! Much less follow the video! Thank you for that. My question is that your yarn looks "thinner" than my bulky yarn. I typically use a 4 or 5 on my blankets. So I looked at the yarn the other day and most of what I would consider similar to this said to use a 5.5 or a 6 mm hook. Does it matter with this type of pattern to vary that differently? I've only been crocheting a little over a year and that was just teaching myself a simple blanket. (I can't keep count very well, so I just do a simple rectangle blanket.) 😉 Thanks again for the easy to follow video/pattern.

  4. I just did this pattern today….following the instructions to a T…..it is nowhere near a decent size, it's small…same hook same yarn. It now belongs to my 10 yr old daughter. lol….I will do another one tomorrow…with way more chains to start it.

  5. Thank you for this pattern, which is lovely, but I’d also like to use the tidepool stitch for a light lap Afghan. What should I do to the ends to keep it straight instead of angled?
