  1. I've made your Nubbie Scrubbies and love them. My printer is down. Is this the same pattern only on a larger scale?

    1. Yes! It is very much like the Nubbie Scrubbies pattern only larger and bigger. Uses different dimensions, but it is the same basic idea.

  2. Any recommendations for how to modify this to use a super bulky weight (6) yarn instead? I'm wanting to use Bernat Blanket.... Thanks for any ideas!

    1. Sure, try it with Super Bulky weight yarn. I would probably try it with just one strand and maybe experiment with different hook sizes until you get the right tension for the yarn you use. My guess is that it may be a bit smaller hook than the 10mm. So you may want to add more width and length to your dimensions as well. The multiple for the pattern is 2, so just add more stitches and rows in multiples of 2.

  3. Hi, just wondering if all of the single crochets in row 2 should be done in the space or if they should be done in the stitch (excluding the first and last sc)? Thanks!

    1. Yes, all the single crochet should be done in the stitches.

  4. This blanket looks amazing!!

  5. I love this pattern!!
    Could you please explain the edging on this a little more for me,
    Its a bit confusing.

    1. Sure. The edging is simply single crochet all around the perimeter of the blanket. Just do two sc in the same hole in each corner with a chain 1 in between, then continue along the next side until you end up where you started. If you just start doing it, I think it will become clearer. Good luck!

    1. It depends a lot on your choice of yarn and on your tension. For me, mine turned out to be 63" x 63".

  7. Can I make this on a smaller scale with the bernat blanket yarn? For a lady say about 5ft 3in? What would you recommend? Also how heavy do you think this blanket is?

    1. Sure! I would definitely try it! My blanket weighs about 5 lbs.
      I recently made another one using just one strand of Bernat Chunky and it turned out great! I'm not sure how many skeins I used because I didn't keep track. I just added more until I got the size I wanted. It turned out very nice and soft! Bernat Blanket yarn looks really soft and I bet it would turn out nice. I would recommend just one strand for that as well.

    1. I used Red Heart Comfort yarn. Worsted weight with two strands held together.2000 grams total. The color was called "Gray".

  9. Do you think this blanket would look good with two different colors being stitched together instead of using 2 of the same color?

    Thanks!

  10. How many single crochet stitches should you have in each row if you follow the pattern as is? 100?

  11. Is the TR and the SC in the same stitch?

  12. Thank you for sharing this pattern. I have a grandson who is colorblind and this would be perfect for him done in shades of green which is the only color he sees accurately.

  13. Beautiful blanket! How would I make this in a smaller version? Like for a baby and toddler?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. You could make this for a baby by using a smaller hook and finer yarn. I have made it with baby or dk weight yarn and a size 3.5mm hook. The rest of the pattern is the same. It turned out great!

  14. Is this pattern in US terms or UK?

  15. Hi! I love your work and would like to make the Hubbie Nubbie up as a blanket measuring approx 60" x 75" using a super chunky yarn on a 12mm hook. Do you have a way of calculating how much yarn I should purchase? With thanks.

    1. Im sorry I don't have anyway of calculating how much yarn it would take. I have made this blanket using a super chunky yarn with a 10mm hook and it turned out great!! Unfortunately I forgot to record how much yarn it took to make exactly. I just origionally guessed how much I would need and ended up having one ball left over when it got to the size I wanted. My blanket is 60"x 75" finished and it weighs 2086 grams or around 74oz. Hopefully that will help you be able to figure out a rough estimate of how much yarn to purchase. Good luck!

  16. I'm on my fifth row and have noticed that one side has the "nubbie" closer to the edge than the opposite side. Is this normal?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I don't think that is normal. The nubbie should be close to the end on both ends. There is just the chain 1 before the Treble crochet (nubbie) at the beginning of a row, and there is one single crochet after the Treble crochet at the end of the row. Also the nubbies should line up vertically as the blanket progresses. If they are off-set, then something is wrong on the previous row. Hope this is helpful.

  17. This is a beautiful blanket! I've made it twice but still have one question... Working on row 3, what is the difference between crocheting into a sc space and a sc chain? It doesn't seem possible to tr and sc into anything but the sc chain, since row 2 is comprised only of single chains. Thank you!

    1. Thank you, Bree. Yes, I think you are right. I think I should have said to sc in the next sc space rather than chain. The chain spaces are only on row one because that is what you are crocheting into, but on row 3 there is only single crochet spaces to crochet into. Thanks for pointing that out. I will clarify the pattern!
