The amount of yarn used is approximate, you may use more or less yarn depending on your tension and chosen brand.
7mm crochet hook- the yarn I used recommends a 5mm hook, I decided to use a larger hook to give a better drape.
The pattern will work with any yarn size, increase the hook size by 2 from the hook size that has been recommended for your yarn. Finished blanket size will depend on your type of yarn, size of hook and your tension.
I suggest using aran/worsted yarn, with a 7mm hook which will give a finished measurement of approx 162cm x 127cm (64 in x 50 in) with tension of 12st and 15 rows in Sc to 10cm/4in.
