Using a thinker yarn as what pattern indicate

Using a different weight of yarn other than mentioned in pattern

 

By using the swatch method you can easily determine the amount of starting chains when you wish to use a yarn with either a heavier thinker weight or a more sportier thinner weight.
as your swatch size determines your initial starting chain, so you won't end up with an over large or way too small blanket it is a great way to work away oddballs and scrap yarn, as you do not have to purchase yarn for this project, you can use what you have on hand.

 

Using Scrap Yarn Balls when making a Stitch Sampler Blanket

 

This pattern is a great pattern to work away scrap yarn, but I do recommend when using scrap yarn to keep the weight (thickness) of the balls as similar as possible and only crochet with one crochet hook size for all rows.

If you switch between crochet hook sizes and different thicknesses of yarns you will have some wonky rows and your blanket won't have very straight lines.

using yarn stash left over yarn
Keep the weight of yarns and crochet hook the same size thruout the pattern.

Materials used in this example

I made two sample blankets using two different brands of DK - Double knit weighted cotton yarn. One sample was worked with a 4mm / US: G/6, UK: 8 crochet hook, my 4 mm crochet hook gave me a gauge of 7.5 mm for a row of 12 double crochet stitches, Following the sizing chart as supplied in the pattern I chained 290 stitches for my starting chain as I wanted a custom sized afghan of 180cm wide as I needed and afghan between the sizes of a twin and a double bed blanket size.

The second sample was worked with a 3.5mm / US: E/4, UK: 9 crochet hook. 
I had a swatch size of 2.5 inches for a row of 12 double-crochet stitches. 
Following the sizing chart I chained 165 starting stitches for a crib-sized blanket.

This pattern is perfect for any type of yarn and yarn weight. Just ensure that you always stick to the same yarn weight and crochet hook throughout the pattern. You can work it in your favorite selection of yarn, the choice of color and yarn type is completely up to you.

Sizing and resizing the crochet blanket

Blankets/afghans are worked from top to bottom, which means your starting chain length determines the width of the blanket, while the amount of rows you work on determines the length of the blanket. I have done my utmost to make this pattern as scalable and resizable as possible to fit most blanket sizes while using the yarn brand and weight of your choice.

Blanket sizes table

Pattern includes a table that gives you the average sizes of 12 blankets, and assists you in determining what size blanket will suit your need, as sometimes someone asks for a receiving blanket, but you might have no idea what size a receiving blanket needs to be for example.

The blanket sizing table included in the pattern includes the following Blanket sizes for your reference. 

  • Car Seat  : 21 x 25 inches / 54 x 68 cm 
  • Stroller Blanket: 31.5 x 38  inches / 81 x 97 cm 
  • Crib Blanket :30 x 36 inches /  81 x 97 cm
  • Receiving : 42 x 47 inches /  108 x 120 cm 
  • Baby : 42 x 57 inches /  108 x 145 cm
  • Swaddle : 52 x 52 inches /  135 x 135 cm
  • Throw : 52 x 57 inches /  135 x 145 cm
  • Twin : 63 x 95 inches /  160 x 240 cm
  • Double : 80 x 90 inches /  240 x 230 cm
  • Queen :  90 x 100 inches /  205 x 255 cm
  • King : 108 x 100 inches / 275 x 255 cm
  • King XL : 108 x 110 inches / 275 x 280 cm

Easily select your blanket size by creating an easy crochet size test swatch and compare this to the Scalable Blanket Size Table

 

Blanket / afghan size is determined by making a test swatch, once you have made the test swatch you can then match up your size swatch with the sizing table determine your blanket, and find your starting chain count.

Length of blanket All rows follow in sequins, and you can simply end your row when you have received the required length. The best practice is to finish off with a row that has a 1dc stitch into each stitch.
