-How many squares do I need for a baby blanket?

This can vary, it really can be however big or small you like, but i generally do 4×4 or 5×5.

This blog post might be useful:

-How many chains shall I do for a *single/double/etc’ blanket?

Again, this can vary. I would suggest that you do your chain and lay it down agains the bed you are wanting it for. It should be the same width. You should then ad a few more to make it a little wider.

This blog post might be useful:

-How much yarn do I need?

Unfortunately, I will not be able to answer individuals questions about how much yarn you would used do to multiple factors affecting it. Such as, your tension, the size of hook and the yarn being used.

-What equipment do you use?

    How many yarns estimated by 5mm hook for a king size blanket?

  2. Ashley Longo says:

    I've made it to the first row where you start to create the square. Is anyone else's square curling ? I can't seem to get my square to stay flat. Thanks!

  3. i have a question. I need to make about 7 hats for christmas. I thought
    for a soft yarn, instead of using RH super saver or carons lb yarn, I
    would try the Lions pound of love yarn. My question is, is that pound of
    love yarn a lot softer and good to use for hats? I have never used it
    and my hats usually come stiff with the other economy yarns

    I really want to master the virus stitch i find this the hardest to do.

  5. Ari Yu says:

    I don’t know if you still respond to comments on an old video but I was wondering if this pattern was feasible with a thick yarn or is it only workable with thinner yarn?
    I have the Bernet baby yarn to make a blanket for a friend with sensitive skin and this pattern looks so fun to make!

  6. Do the arcade stitch with the virus blanket

  7. Kim Jack says:

    Thank you 😊 you’ve explained this pattern the easiest by far and I’ve seen a few cant thank you enough 😊

  8. Hey, is there a written pattern for this? I can't seem to remember the pattern and to keep rewinding to the same "pause" bit is proving difficult. Thanks

  9. thank i love it this way am doing one now but is a bit differnt this will be on the list to do just love it .you make it very easy to understand .

  10. How large a blanket would one skein of Sheepjes Whirl make? Thanks.

  11. Kazzkorner says:

    Hello Bella Coco, Do you have a written pattern for this blanket,as I have done the first rounds and I wanted to know if you have a repeat for the 4 rows so I don't have to keep repeating this video.Love your videos you have taught me so much .Thank you so much.

  12. The US terms make a lot more sense IMHO.

  13. Faye Hackers says:

    Why is it called a Virus Blanket please? This is my first project! I did your absolute beginners swatches and have just completed these instructions in a ball of cheapo acrylic- I might buy something a bit nicer and make a full blanket now im feeling confident, thanks!

  14. Joia Grove says:

    Thank u so much for talking very clearly and doing it close up so that I can see exactly what u are doing. Great job.

  15. JM Channel says:

    Wonderful tutorial! Very easy to follow.

  16. I cannot get the second row to lie flat 🙁

  17. Please someone tell me why it curls and how I can rectify it.

  18. Phew! I need stitch markers for this one. And not simple enough to do while watching tv. I’ll come back to this blanket later. 😅

  19. Hi I wonder if someone could help me please, I’m following this tutorial and I’m loving the pattern, however mind is curling and it curled in round two. Thanks for your help

  20. My first try at this and getting the hang of it. But my work has ‘buckled’ and wont lay flat. What am I doing wrong? Thanks

  21. Pat Taylor says:

    After the third round I have 40 trebles which I believe is correct. However after trying several time to complete round 4 I end up with 5 corners and a stitch or two left. Driving me nuts 😟

  22. Linda Clark says:

    Good afternoon..would you have the written instructions…..I understand patterns much better rather than see someone showing me..many thanks

  23. Marion Pugh says:

    You explained this so well. I have been putting off doing it but started tonight. I have done the first 6 rows so far but it is very rippled & yours doesn’t seem to be. I am using DK & 4mm hook. I have seen lots of posts saying it will flatten out but wonder if I should have changed my hook size? Would it help if I went up to 4.5 or 5 mm?

  24. Written Pattern

    The foundation is made up of 7 rows and then it's a 4 row repeat.


    1. Ch 6.

    Insert hook in first ch to create a circle.

    Ch 3 (this will be your first double crochet). 19 more dc in the center of the circle.

    Sl st into the 3rd st from the bottom. (20)

    2. Ch 3

    2dc into each of the 20 stitches (your 1st dc will be in the same space as the ch.

    Sl st into the 3rd st from the bottom.) (40)

    3. Ch 3.


    *Dc into next st. Ch 1. * Do this a total of 40 times. (40)

    Sl st into the 3rd st from the bottom. Not the 4th!

    4. 1/2 Corner: Ch 5. Sc Into the 2nd ch space. (Note: this will only be a partial corner. You'll finish the second half at the end of this row.)

    *Ch 3. sk the next ch space. Sc in the space. * do this a total of 3 times.

    Full Corner: *ch 5. sk a space and sc. * do this a total of 2 times.

    Continue with your chain 3 spaces and full corners until you're all the way around the circle.

    Last 1/2 Corner: ch 5. sk the next ch space and sc. Sl st into the next ch 5 space (which is the 1st 1/2 corner you did at the beginning of the round).

    5. Ch 3. 9 DC in the space (which totals 10 dc in the ch 5 space).

    *SC in the next ch 3 space. Ch 3.

    SC in the next ch 3 space. Ch 3

    SC in the next ch 3 space.

    10 DC in ch 5 space.* Repeat until you finish the row.

    Sl st into 1st ch.

    6. Ch 3. 1 dc in the next 10 dc.

    *Sc into ch 3 space. Ch 3. sc in next ch 3 space. You'll notice your ch 3 spaces look like a pyramid now, this row has 1 ch 3 space, the previous row had two, and the previous had 3.

    20 dc in the next 20 dc's.* Repeat all the way around.

    Sl st in top of beginning ch.

    7. Ch 3. ch 1.

    1dc + ch 1 8 times. In the 10th dc, dc but no ch.

    Skip over the ch 3 space and start your 1dc + ch 1 again. You'll have a total of 20 dc +20 ch 1. Continue until you're back to the beginning.

    Sl st into the 3rd ch from the bottom. DO NOT sl st into the 4th!


    1. Ch 5. sk a ch space and sc.

    *Ch 3. sk a space and sc. ch 3. sk a space and sc. Ch 3. sk a space and sc.

    You'll now be 1 ch space away from the "valley" ch space.

    Ch5. sk a ch space. Skip the "valley" space. Sk another ch space. Sc in the next ch space.

    Ch 3. sk a space and sc. Ch 3. sk a space and sc. Ch 3. sk a space and sc.

    Ch 5. sk a space and sc. Ch 5. sk a space and sc.* Continue until you're back to the beginning of the round.

    Sl st in beginning ch 5 section..

    2. Ch 3

    9 dc in ch 5 space.

    Sc in ch 3 space. Ch 3.

    Sc in ch 3 space. Ch 3.

    Sc in ch 3 space.

    10 dc in the ch 5 space.

    Sc in ch 3 space. Ch 3.

    Sc in ch 3 space. Ch 3.

    Sc in ch 3 space. Ch 3.

    10dc in ch 5 space.

    10 dc in ch 5 space.

    Repeat till back to the beginning.

    Sl st to 1st st.

    3. Ch 3.

    1 dc in next 9 dc's (for a total of 10 when you count the ch 3).

    Sc in ch 3 space. Ch 3. sc in ch 3 space.

    1 dc in next 10 dc's.

    Sc in ch 3 space. Ch 3. sc in ch 3 space.

    1 dc in next 20 dc's.

    Continue all the way around.

    Sl st to top of ch.

    4. Ch 3. ch 1.

    1dc + ch 1 in next st. Repeat until you finish the fan. The last DC ( #10) DOES NOT GET A CH 1!!!! (10 dc + 9 ch )

    Skip the Valley and go straight into you dc + ch 1's . Continue all the way around.

    Sl st to 3rd chain from the bottom (NOT INTO THE 4th !!)

    **this is where you would change your yarn color if desired***

    Repeat to desired length.

  33. Lynn Fraser says:

    What size blanket does this turn out to be?

  34. Lynn Fraser says:

    Hi…love the virus blanket. Do you have instructions how to put a border on it?

  35. JB Rose says:

    Can you please explain row 4 and row 5. Im having trouble understanding why my row five does not have TWO fans (10 double crochet U.S). on row 4 im making it to a square by adding 3x chains and then 5 chains, 3x chain, so total of 4 corners of 5 chains and between 3x chains. on row 5 are we supposed to have 40 double crotchet of fans or 80 double crotchet of fans.

  36. I think Im doing some thing wrong I have tried using different yarns and hook sizes but it keeps looking like a warped LP can't get it flat, please help!

  37. Is it possible to print your beautiful pattern please

  38. I am going to make this for my new nephew who will be born during the coronavirus. Lovely!!!
