Frequently asked questions about the Dream Blanket 6.0 CAL/KAL
How big is the Dream Blanket 6.0?
The crocheted Dream Blanket 6.0 is approximately 130 x 165 cm big. The size may vary depending on your personal crochet tension.
The knitted Dream Blanket 6.0 is approximately 120 x 150cm. The size may vary depending on your personal knitting tension.
How can I make the Dream Blanket 6.0 bigger?
If you want to make the crocheted blanket wider, we recommend that you work any extra repeats based on the popcorn stitch section (rows 67 to 121). This section uses a multiple of 43 + 6 stitches.
What yarn is used to make the Dream Blanket 6.0?
The Dream Blanket 6.0 is made with the new yarn, Yarn and Colors Amazing. This yarn is made from recycled acrylic, so it is a sustainable option for your blanket. The 100-gram skeins come with 310 meters of yarn, so it has a great price-quality ratio. The yarn is soft, smooth, and easy to work with. You have an extensive color palette of no fewer than 45 shades to choose from!
My blanket does not lie flat, what can I do?
Is your work wavy or rippling? Then try using a half or whole size smaller hook or needle. Is your work too tight or does it bunch up? Then try using a half or whole size bigger hook or needle. Small irregularities in tension can easily be resolved by blocking your work well at the end. For the best results, use specialized blocking equipment from the Yarnplaza assortment, such as blocking mats, knit blockers, and a water spray bottle.
Can I use a different yarn to make the Dream Blanket 6.0?
You can certainly use a different yarn to make the blanket. You do need to make sure that the thickness (‘yarn weight’) and yardage are a good match to the original. The thickness of the yarn will affect how many meters of yarn you need and, ultimately, the size of your blanket. In this particular case, you’re looking for a yarn with a gauge of 22 stitches x 30 rows. Then work out how many balls you need based on your chosen yarn’s own yardage.
