  1. Thanks for knitting Channing Road with me! I joined a new skein at the beginning of a row and wove my ends in. Watch my Weaving in Ends – Seed Stitch video to hide the tails invisibly.

  2. On Channing Road, when joining a new skein, are you knotting it or weaving it in?

  3. Thanks for purchasing Channing Road! A queen size bed is 60″ wide and 80″ long. The number of stitches would depend on how much you want the blanket to hang over the edges. Each repeat is 22 stitches wide so add that number to the cast on stitches for each extra repeat. Each repeat is about 5 inches wide. As far as yardage goes, it would depend on the size, yarn and gauge. My best guess is 20 skeins of Simpliworsted for a blanket that is near a queen size. Hope this helps!

  4. I just bought your new Channing Road blanket pattern. I need to enlarge it to fit a queen size bed perhaps. Doesn’t look difficult to do I just need some guidance on the number of stitches in a repeat and the width/length of each. Also could you recommend the change in yarn amounts. Thank you.
