    I would love to make this into a baby afghan. How many chain stitches should I start with?

      Hi, you need to decide how big you want your baby blanket to be, the baby blankets I design are usually 100cm long by 75cm wide. Then make a small swatch and see how many stitches you need in a 10cm area then multiply it to make up the width. I hope this helps.

    I would like to make a toddler blanket for my grandson. This stitch is new to me and looks easy. What size hook and yarn should I use. Also, how many chain stitches should I use to start. (What size do you recommend)?

      Hi, you should use the hook recommended for the yarn you are using (check the band on the yarn). As for the size, it’s all up to you, there are a few standard sizes going around the web, my baby blankets, for example, are 75cm by 100cm. Make a swatch to see how many stitches you need.
