  3. I better explain. I have crochet thread from my mother but it doesn't say what size it is. Lady Lydia brand. I have hooks size 9 & 10. So I'm tempted to go with the 10, & I do have 6 rolls of 400 yards each.

  4. I love this pattern! I found it after scouring the internet in August and I started it in September. However I am using it as a tunisian crochet pattern--if that makes sense. I love doing filet crochet but i had a blanket in mind when I saw this. Thanks for posting it!

    3. Angelwoman - Since it is made with a chart, you can modify how you use the chart and make filet or solid blocks with yarn to create a design.
