    If using a cake yarn do you have to cut the yarn and start again to begin the virus pattern? Seems like you should be able to continue working without doing so.

    I can't help but notice your Jamberry nail wraps! 😉

    can you post written crochet pattern

    What size does this blanket end up being? I am making 36 inch x 48 inches for wheelchair patients. Would this pattern work?

  6. Adrienne Delves September 22, 2017 at 7:30 pm

    I have done your virus blanket many times and I would like to try the rectangular shape in fine cotton have you ever tried this and do it work well – any ideas would be much appreciated for a table centre piece

    Hi Jonna, i have a friend who's asked for a rectangular virus wrap, is there a way of making this more rectangular? Could i make the starting panel longer? I hope that makes sense. Thank you…Julie

    This seems so simple compared to just the virus blanket. I am excited to try this.

  9. Bertha Zacharewicz September 22, 2017 at 7:30 pm

    Thank you so much for teaching us and for giving us information on what's the best yarn to use and the size of the hook. I'm a beginner and that information really helps. The blanket is beautiful and your instructions are very clear.😊

  10. WisconsinMom September 22, 2017 at 7:30 pm

    What are the dimensions of your finished blanket?

  11. Nan S September 22, 2017 at 7:30 pm

    I love this pattern. I've done the base plus the initial 8 rows and even though I took the hook down a size it is ripply in the first double crochet row and tries to straighten itself out in the remaining two rows. Any suggestions on what I can do to keep this from happening? Thanks!

    Jonna, I just want to say that you are one of the BEST tutors on Youtube. You explain everything so well that it is so easy to follow your patterns. You also have a very good speaking voice, making it easy to understand what you're saying. When I see your name associated with a pattern or stitch, I know I can count on you to explain it clearly and thoroughly enough so I can do it, too. Thank you.

    You certainly are talented to create such a beautiful pattern!

  13. Karen M September 22, 2017 at 7:30 pm

    Great tutorial, I really enjoyed it. You have a great, soothing voice for this sort of tutorial, and you explain it all so well. I wonder how a variegated yarn would do with this pattern, have you ever tried it?

  14. Sowmya Nagarajan September 22, 2017 at 7:30 pm

    Hi – like your pattern!  I have made a mistake – right after the rectangle, I tried to make the loopy row – chain 5 and 3 loops and 5 and  the 2nd  3 loops is your pattern – am unable to get the 2nd 3 loops – I get only two 3 loops . wonder why ?  unwound and did twice

  15. Doris Watkins September 22, 2017 at 7:30 pm

    Can not wait to start this! Great job on this video, very clear and easy to follow!

  16. Juana Ostos September 22, 2017 at 7:30 pm

    I made all of your blankets thank you.if I wanted to make this one as a shall I need. a 10 foot long about how many chains do I need to start .

  17. SAULS GINGER September 22, 2017 at 7:30 pm

  18. Jenny D September 22, 2017 at 7:30 pm

    Is this pattern suitable to make big enough for a king size bed?

  19. Virginia Hardy September 22, 2017 at 7:30 pm

    Very good and clear instructions. Thanks

  20. Judith Little September 22, 2017 at 7:30 pm

  21. sally roberts September 22, 2017 at 7:30 pm

    Love this video.  Would you or should you put a boarder on this ?

  22. Janet Abbott September 22, 2017 at 7:30 pm

    What fun! Your videos make it so easy to learn new patterns. Thank you for all your hard work.

  23. Elijah Tamondong September 22, 2017 at 7:30 pm

  24. Agatha Wint September 22, 2017 at 7:30 pm

    I'm learning the pattern. it's very beautiful.

  25. Donna Zema September 22, 2017 at 7:30 pm

    Thanks so much for such clear instructions!!

  26. FrancisBowieBeans September 22, 2017 at 7:30 pm

    Thank you for this video. I love the pace of your instruction too– quick and clear.
    Can you tell me what the size of the rectangle blanket is and how many skeins of yarn you used? I want to make this 70"x90" – can you tell me what I would need? Thank you so much!!

  27. shamy teejai September 22, 2017 at 7:30 pm

    love your video, it makes such a complex looking pattern seem quite easy to do. I have a large rectangular base already completed and want to use the virus pattern as a large border for three of the sides (left, bottom and right). do you have any clues as to how I would do that please . thanks in advance

  28. Erica Grebe September 22, 2017 at 7:30 pm

    have another question on the yarn I'm using says to use a 7mm should I use the recommended cause I tried with the g hook and it's curling

  29. Jean Jones September 22, 2017 at 7:30 pm

    I love this but I only have red heart yarn. could I do this using a larger hook size I or J?

  30. jeni wycha September 22, 2017 at 7:30 pm

    Jonna I am fairly new to all this and have done this 7 times now but just dont quite get it …. sorry… is there any way you can show it as a diagram so I can see what each row should look like

  31. Leandra Nightwolf September 22, 2017 at 7:30 pm

    What do you think of doing this with size 10 crochet cotton to make a more lacy blanket??

  32. Chasity Staggs September 22, 2017 at 7:30 pm

    good video. do you know how to do broomstick lace

  33. Diana Zipser September 22, 2017 at 7:30 pm

    looks hard but directions sound easy

  34. suraiya parveen September 22, 2017 at 7:30 pm

    Hi Jonna, love your tutorial., I would love to make queen size blanket., can you please tell me the magic number ( to start this pattern how many chains needed,) ., that would be grateful., Thanks.,

  35. Deborah Hoke September 22, 2017 at 7:30 pm

    ok i tried 3 times followed directions chain 22 and ALWAYS came up 1 short.

  36. Nancy-Anne Rockwell September 22, 2017 at 7:30 pm

    this will be my first virus blanket. I'm so glad I found your video! perfect pace and very clear instructions. thanks a million! !

  37. Beth Adams September 22, 2017 at 7:30 pm

    How can you get rid of noticeable line created at the one corner which is obviously the start of each row. If you look at the last frame of this video, the line can be seen at the bottom right. If you look at the other three corners they don't have that obvious line.

    I followed another video you creating using shells and hated the line and threw the project away after putting in three hours

  38. Teresa Olofson September 22, 2017 at 7:30 pm

    can u make these into motifs?

  39. Barbara Lipskie September 22, 2017 at 7:30 pm

    Awesome video! Precise, easy to understand & well videoed. Thank you. Going to Micheals this afternoon to get yarn for this.

  40. Ginger Bread September 22, 2017 at 7:30 pm

    I am making this pattern using Caron Simply Soft light country blue and the Caron white. (It's looking very Williamsburg colonial.) I've made three virus shawls, one baby blanket virus variation using picots, and then found your rectangle version. Can't wait to see it completed. Thank you so much for this pattern and very clear tutorial! (Thinking of going to your Rectangular shells blanket next.)

  41. Sarah Neber September 22, 2017 at 7:30 pm

    I started one of these for my daughter and it started rippling a lot. I am slowly fixing it each round. It seams to be working out ok. However I thought I would try the yarn you were using and the size hook but so far mine is only at the granny rectangular part before the loopy row and it is much smaller that yours. How can that be when I am using the same yarn and hook?

  42. Dawniel Sterling September 22, 2017 at 7:30 pm

    This is fantastic; Thank You! I wanted this version ☺
