  1. I am lost. I don't know how many skeins of each color to buy of each color to fit a king size bed. Can you help. Is a kit available in the US?

    1. hi there is a yarn pack available but its a UK company, the pack will make the 9 block blanket and a cushion but not a king size blanket, i would be guessing if i said 2 packs for a king size blanket sorry xx

  2. I am confused by the number of diamond infills to make if I am doing the 9 block blanket...Am I right to assume I need 162 infills for 9 blocks, with 18 colour infills in each block for Part 2? And do I only use the 9 colours given in the final colour update blog? Thanks so much!

  3. If the 9 blocks are made in the various colour motifs as provided, is there enough yarn in the kit? Or is it intended to do only as the cushion block colours, repeated the same on each block? Thanks.

  4. I have added a picture of one block for you to see.....18 diamonds and 18 triangles per motif...so if you are doing the 9 blocks to make a blanket then you need 18 x 9blocks = 162 and each block has 18 colours for the diamonds and 1 colour for the triangles each block can be a different colour xx
