    Hi. Just wondering what size a blanket would be?
    How much wool required for a largish throw?
    Thank you.

      This would totally depend on the yarn you are using, your hook size and your tension. 🙂

      Hi Minna Yes, you can use any yarn that you wish for this blanket, although obviously the results will differ than the blanket shown I think using a cake yarn will make a really interesting blanket.

    For the foundation chain: how many chains to make the blanket wider? Is there a multiple that I should work with? Add 60? Double it?
    Thank you.

      The Jewels Blanket uses the V stitch which is worked in multiples of 3, plus 7 for turning
