Really wonderful dear Debi..:)) Thank you very much for the pattern..ReplyDelete
It's beautiful Debi, thank you for sharing the pattern :)ReplyDelete
Lovely blanket Debi. I do so like the colours. Hope you're having a fab weekend :)ReplyDelete
Hi debi what wonderful colours on the blanket. I have a question before I buy some red heart online somewhere how easy is it to work with and is it soft.ReplyDelete
Thanks Rob. Red Heart Super Saver is easy to work with. It is a worsted weight, 4-ply acrylic that is washable and dryable and it has a great range of colors. Some of the colors will be soft and some of the colors will not be soft. When I'm done crocheting something and it is stiff and scratchy - I just run it through the dryer with a damp towel and it will come out soft as butter. It's also a very economical yarn - it's around $2.99 for a 7 ounce solid color skein or a 5 ounce variegated skein. :)Delete
Thanks debi now I feel alittle more comfortable ordering some.Delete
I was really nervous About trying something new But when I got started I said Wow This is so easy and so beautiful Thank you for sharing such a delightful pattern And I can't wait to see how it going to finish Thanks againDelete
Oh Debi, I love this. How sweet, so colorful and joyful. Just perfect for wrapping a bundle! Thanks for the pattern.ReplyDelete
Thanks everyone. :)ReplyDelete
That would look really good as a tree skirt too! Great pattern Debi!ReplyDelete
Wonderful work, debi! All the compliments are so well deserved!ReplyDelete
I have come to the conclusion that you crochet in your sleep, LOL. Thank you for sharing another pretty pattern. I've got so many of your patterns on my to-do list I am wondering if I will ever get them all done.ReplyDelete
(((HUGS))) Susanne :)
Great color and blanket! Thanks for sharing the pattern...would love to try it!ReplyDelete
This is going to be my Olympics project! Thanks for the pattern! I found it on Pintereat.ReplyDelete
This is the prettiest round blanket I've ever seen, Debi! Thank you for sharing this beautiful pattern!ReplyDelete
I love this site.ReplyDelete
Debi, I wanted to thank you Soooo much for this easy to follow pattern. I have been crocheting when we go on short car trips and I am almost done. I am making the pattern for my mother who is in a nursing home and is confined to a wheelchair. Small round crochet blankets are the BEST for people in wheel chairs because they don't get caught in the wheels and there are no corners to drag on the floor either. Thank you again. I will be making more of these!!!ReplyDelete
You're very welcome - I'm glad you like it, and I hope your Mom likes it too. :)Delete
Thank you all so much. (sorry so late posting this) :)ReplyDelete
The baby blanket is very pretty, however, I have great difficulty following the instructions in this fancy writing.ReplyDelete
i saw an ad on facebook i dont usually click them but glad i did now it brought me to something then saw this i am a recent beginner and thought wow never read a pattern before only crochet by you tube videos and i surprised myself started and just finished it thanks very much for posting this i certainly would do this again :)ReplyDelete
This is so beautiful. Thanks for the pattern!ReplyDelete
ooooooooooooo i love this. I can't wait to try itReplyDelete
I am a novice and just learned to crochet. Sorry to sound stupid but are the dc's done into the top of a dc instead of the spaces that I have used in granny afghan?ReplyDelete
Beautiful blanket :)
Hi Maz. You don't sound stupid - that's a good question. The 3 dcs are worked into the middle dc of the 3 dc group on the previous round. I hope that sounds right to you. If you click on the picture of the blankie, it will get a little larger and then you can see what I mean. :)Delete
Thanks Debbie...that's what I thought but never tried that yet but here goes.Delete
I used your pattern!! Thank you!ReplyDelete
That's really neat Hilary. Thanks for showing it to me. (p.s. I shared it on my Facebook page.) :)Delete
This is awesome Debi!ReplyDelete
Found your site through All Free Crochet. Love your patterns and your blog. Now for my question~what rounds would you repeat if you wanted to make the blanket bigger? Don't have babies around so a bigger blanket would be better.ReplyDelete
Hi Scorpie. It wouldn't work to keep making this blankie bigger. The way it is now, it ruffles at the end. :)Delete
Thanks so much for your reply. I kinda figured that would be the case(edge ruffles).Delete
Love this pattern but would like to make it bigger, just repeat the final rows?ReplyDelete
Hi Baby Girl Carpenter. It wouldn't work to make this blankie bigger. The way it is now, it ruffles at the end.Delete
Love this pattern. thanks for sharingReplyDelete
Can you tell us the finished size? Diameter?ReplyDelete
Very cute - can't wait to try it!
Hi there. The blanket is 32" across. :)Delete
Thank you so much for sharing. I love it! So beautiful! I also am happy to find your page and joined!ReplyDelete
Question......why do I need all your comment section printed, when all I would like is the pattern?ReplyDelete
Click on the 'print' icon at the bottom of the post - there will be a pop-up and only the pattern will be printed.Delete
My blanket is curling up. I am at rows 9 n 10 but it started about row 4. Is this supposed to happen n will it flatten out as it gets bigger or is something wrong? Thanks for the pattern easy to follow. ShelleyReplyDelete
Hi Shelley. The blanket is not supposed to ruffle until you get around the end. Can I see a picture of the one you're working on? Maybe I can see what's happening with it. :)Delete
It's not ruffling its caping a bit like when u make a hat. It's as if there isn't enough stitches. The problem started when I did the three double three times, on row 6. I felt like there should b a chain in between. But thought no just follow the pattern.ReplyDelete
There is a chain in between. Work your first 3 dc cluster (which is a ch3 and 2 dc), ch 1, then work a dc in the ch-2 space, ch 1, then work your next 3 dc cluster in the middle dc of the next cluster.Delete
(Rnd 6: Sl st into next dc, (ch 3, 2 dc) in same dc, ch 1, dc in ch-2 space, ch 1. *3 dc in middle dc of next 3 dc cluster, ch 1, dc in ch-2 space, ch 1. Repeat from * around. Join as before.)
Yes, Deb, thanks for this... But the question of how to make it larger was never answered. Inquiring minds want to know. .. Please? I will NOT be using WW.....ReplyDelete
Hi Cynthia. I don't have the blanket anymore so I can't look at it, only the picture. I'm not sure, but maybe you can repeat Rnds 17 through 28 - the blanket will definitely ruffle a whole lot more for sure.Delete
Debi, I just love your blogs and your patterns. I used the Ferris Wheel pattern to make a couple of afghans. They turned out really beautifully. I love to crochet. Even though I was born with only one hand, I taught myself to crochet and knit as a teen. I only crochet now, because after my two spinal fusion surgeries I cannot find a comfortable position in which I can knit. But I have now discovered the versatility of crochet is fantastic. Your patterns are great. I am trying to figure out how to send you pictures of my 2 Ferris wheel projects.ReplyDelete
Just love this pattern just finished it in peach and cream love it and now doing a rainbow one, thank you for sharingReplyDelete
I'm having a little problem when I'm to crochet 3 dc in the middle of a previous row of 3 dc, I can't determine where to put my hook. If I go in the top to the left or right of the middle dc, it makes the 3 stitches off center with the previous row. Can you help explain this stitch, as to where I'm to place the hook to make the 3 dc?ReplyDelete
Hi Susan. The 3 dcs are worked into the middle dc of the 3 dc group on the previous round. I hope that sounds right to you. If you click on the picture of the blankie, it will get a little larger and then you can see what I mean. :)Delete
After I yo where/which thread do I go under to complete the dcDelete
You will dc into the middle dc of the 3dc group. I don't know how else to explain it. Please enlarge the picture so you can see the pattern. :)Delete
I'm making this blanket and I've started over twice. Each time the blanket does not lay flat. I've looked at the pattern repeatedly but I think I'm following it exactly. Has anyone else had this problem? I've been crocheting 30+ years so I can read a pattern and generally follow it. This is bothering me because I really like this blanket. Marcia Rouse, NCReplyDelete
Sorry you're having troubles with this blanket. Can you email me a close-up picture of your blanket - maybe I can help if I can see what the problem is. My email is email@example.comDelete
Hello Debi,found your pattern over a week ago as I wanted to do a round baby blanket as never done one before..I live in the UK and I used dk yarn for my blanket,I had to do a few more rows to get it to the size I wanted... then finished it of with rows 29 and 30 in your pattern, it turned out amazing.. Thank you for the pattern and I will be using it again..xxReplyDelete
I just made this baby afghan for my great grand baby, gave it at the shower yesterday and every one loved it. So I am starting another tonight for another great grand baby. This one will be done in orange and white for UT colors since we all are university Tn fans. Thank you,for this great pattern. Someone at the shower said it looks like a doily.ReplyDelete
This is an absolutely GREAT pattern! I have make this in pink, gray & white, white with different colors like the pattern, purple with different colors, just finished a cream & red (which is really awesome)and am working on 2 right now in pink, purple, green, blue & yellow. If I trim it in white,I might add an extra row so the SC row blends better. But this is my GO-TO pattern. I'd like to see you design another one that's as simple & takes such little yarn.ReplyDelete
Hello Debi, Love this pattern. I'm wondering when u said put in dryer with damp towel how long and what temp. I have one finished that I used Red Heart yarn and it is scratchy. Thank YouReplyDelete
Hi Karen. I usually put the item in the dryer for around 30 minutes on the regular setting (I don't know what the temperature is). :)Delete
The baby cribs blanket is very pretty,ReplyDelete
This is the pattern I've been looking for to but on a $ store umbrella to create an umbra for shade.ReplyDelete
That's a great idea. :)Delete
Great pattern, just what I was looking for, thank you o muchReplyDelete
YOU are the creator of this pattern?? I found this blog from a post on FB about something else. Have just been perusing the site when lo & behold I see this! You don't know how many times I have used this pattern in various color configurations! It has been my 'go to' for sometime now. I want to thank you so very much! It is easy, not a yarn eater, & the results are marvelous! Now should you ever get the notion to make another wonderful, round blanket........ReplyDelete
Thank you so much. I'm happy that you enjoy this pattern. :)Delete
i love this pattern i am leaving off the 2 last rounds and repeating certain rows to make it bigger doing it in a 4ply cotton and making it into a tableclothReplyDelete
However, this is NOT the Ferris Wheel pattern. It is round though.ReplyDelete
Yes it is. Allfreeafghancrochetafghanpatterns asked my permission to publish it on their site. They are the ones who named it the ferris wheel blanket. If you look at the byline you will see my name and my blog name giving me credit as the designer. Please check your facts next time.Delete
Make that 'allfreecrochetafghanpatterns'.Delete
Thank you, thank you, thank you. This is the 2nd time I am making this pattern, first one for my granddaughter in lavender and white, every time we go out people complement it. Do you remember what colors you used, would love to make exact on as picturedReplyDelete
You’re welcome - and thank you. Sorry, I don’t remember the exact color names because they were just leftover yarn balls from other projects.Delete
