  1. This may be the best tutorial I’ve ever seen. I love that you explain how to find the exact spot/stitch/chain that should be used. So very helpful, thank you!

  2. Hi Allie, it is: Yarn: Bernat Maker Home Dec (317 yd/8.8 oz; 290m/250 g; Bulky Weight) yarn (Color: Cream)

    Hope this helps 🙂 It is super soft. I actually made an entire blanket using it and it is one of my own personal favorites.

    All the best, Rhondda

  3. I know this is an old post, but can you tell me what yarn you used? It looks beautiful, and exactly what I want for a scarf. Thank you in advance.

  4. Hi Marge 🙂 The site takes 3.5 seconds to load on average. You can check the site speed here: https://gtmetrix.com/ or here: The test I just ran now came back at We took 2.67 seconds to load all content and files from this page. The site itself loads very quickly 🙂 I pride myself on this.

    You may want to check your home computer’s download capacity with your internet provider because the speed you ‘see’ for things to download at your own home computer is based on the level of internet service you have available from your internet provider. For example, I just updated mine. I have been with Bell for 10 years but their download speed only allows us 10 mbps here in the country. It caused all the webpages on line to load quite slowly for me and if my children were online at the same time as me, only one of us would be able to access the internet – so we were booted off! It is very aggravating. I’ve actually just changed internet providers on Tuesday and now my internet provider has provided me with a home (Rogers) download speed for the internet of 1GB per second (it is amazingly fast). Everyone in our house can be on at the same time and you can’t even tell. Hope this helps! and good luck finding another online source without any annoying ads 🙂 All the best, Rhondda

  5. So many ads the site is almost unusable. Nice projects but takes a long time to load and the ads are very annoying. Will try a different site for help.
