  1. Love this pattern but what is the repeat? I would like to make this in a larger width.

  4. I too have made this pattern and I love the Mainstays yarn. I wish I can buy it somewhere. Any ideas as to where? Also I don't fringe anything, just border trim. Made many baby crib size and larger for bed,throws, etc. Love your work

  5. Are the two afghans in the above pictures the same? They really look different. Maybe it's just the colors.

  6. Mainstay is Walmart's brand and they discontinued the yarn. The 2 afghans shown are the same pattern but just look different because of the stripes.

  8. probably any 4 ply, worsted weight yarn could be substituted. Or to make a heavier, larger version, a heavier yarn; or for a lighter, smaller one, a lighter weight yarn.

  9. You can use any yarn. The red and cream one is Red Heart Super Saver and the yellow one is a baby yarn
