  1. oh boy all the comments went away again but anyhow it was about it not laying flat and someone said she did an extra row after the 1st row 2 and it made it lay flat

    1. The pattern will pull itself flat after row 12. And if you've gotten that far and it's still not working, try going down a hook size or two. Pulling and pushing on the stitches to make them lay where they need to be is helpful as well.

    1. You can use any hook you like, but smaller hooks than what the yarn recommends is best.Thank you for commenting!

  3. Could you please have a left handed video made for this project. 8 absolutely love this pattern for a baby blanket.

    1. I am strongly right handed and would never be able to do a tutorial with my left hand. My grandmother used to teach her left handed children in a mirror. You could try setting the video up in a mirror and see if it worked?
      Thank you for commenting!

  4. I wanted to point out that if I hadn't watched your video, I wouldn't have e figured this out. Your written instructions for the first loopy row are wrong. You say to skip 2 stitches when you do the ch 5, but in the video, you skipped one chain space.

    1. I thought the same tried about 5 times then watched video

    2. Maybe you have to old written pattern? If you look above (a few months ago) I've changed it.

      ~Begin Virus Stitch~

      ▪️Row 1. "loopy row":

      ch 5, skip ch 1 space, sc into next ch 1 space. Now make 3 ch 3's. *ch 3, skip ch 1 space, sc into next, ch 3, skip ch 1 space, sc into next,ch 3, skip ch 1 space, sc into next*

      ch 5, skip 2 st, sc into next, ch 5, skip 2 st, sc into next ( this is your second corner) *repeat small loop sequence

      ch 5, skip 2 st, sc into next, ch 5, skip 2 st, sc into next ( this is your third corner) *repeat small loop sequence

      ch 5, skip 2 st, sc into next, ch 5, skip 2 st, sc into next ( this is your fouth corner) *repeat small loop sequence

      ch 5, skip 2 st, sc into the same stitch you chained up from at the beginning. sl st into first ch 5 loop.

    3. Beautiful pattern, thank you!

      I had the same issue with this row. To me at least, it would match the video better if for the corners it said:

      Ch 5, skip next ch 1 space, SC in next ch 1 space, ch 5, skip next ch 1 space, SC in next ch 1 space

    4. Thank you.... I could not figure out this row by the org instructions. I can't load the video, so without your help here I would have given up. Now this row comes out right. I hope this is the only glitch in the written instructions.... The original written pattern needs to be changed!

    5. Hello, I just started the loopy row and I am a little lost as to how to do 3 ch 3's can you please explain that

      Delete
    6. Leslie... The 3 ch 3's have the directions to do these right after the 3 ch 3's.....
      ch 3, skip ch 1 space, sc into next, ch 3, skip ch 1 space, sc into next,ch 3, skip ch 1 space, sc into next* this will created 3 loops... Hope this helps. The further you go you will understand how this works out.....Pam

      Delete
    7. This will create 3 chain 3 loops

    1. Yes it likes to do this, But just keep going and then if it does not pull itself out with size I suggest blocking it. Thank you for commenting!

  8. Do you know how many chains I would need to start, if I wanted 2 arches on the long side of the first pattern row instead of one on the rectangle virus?
    After so many rows, there isn't that much difference in inches between the long side and the short side. And I would like it to be a more obvious rectangle 😉

    ReplyDelete
  9. Never mind. I figured it out... It's 33 chains.

  10. What hook did you use for your blanket??? Could this be done in a P or Q hook??? Thank you!

    1. I used a G 4.25MM hook. I think with BIG yarn p or Q would work well.

  12. Jonna, I purchased the virus blanket pattern this past Friday from the revelry site and I started to print it. I only got the last 3 pages, missing steps for rows 1-5, now I can't find it in my downloads.

    1. I am not sure why this happened. Message me on Ravelry and we can figure it out. Thank you for your purchase!

  13. I just purchased the Virus Blanket pattern at Ravelry. I bought it because I loved the bright, multi-colored picture. The pattern I purchased gives only total yardage for pick & cream. How many skeins of each color do I need for the Virus king multicolored blanket?

    ReplyDelete

    1. You will need half of each color. I would recommend about 2000-2800 yrds to be safe. I have not done a blanket that big as of yet.

  14. Hi there
    It may be an idea to update you Ravelry page which still has the link here for a free pattern and given that the free pattern is no longer here, it probably shouldn't say it is on your page. Many thanks.

    1. Yes, very true. Thank you!! Going there now.

  15. Hi Jonna, I am having trouble after row 11 at our repeat row section, I went back to the "loopy" row, however now I have many more chain 3 spaces and valleys and I am not sure how to tackle them? Do we just add chain 3 spaces everytime we do this row and make sure we have our 5chains in the 4 corners?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Yes. Make sure you have your chain 5's in the corners. Then over each arch you will have your three chain 3's and in each valley you will have a chain 5.
      Hope this helps. If not, send me some photos to my facebook page Siena's Maine Design.

  16. I'm on the loopy row of row number 16i think. I'm coming out with more than three chain three loops. Is this correct or have I done something wrong?

    ReplyDelete
  17. Something is wrong. You should only have 3 chain 3 loops. Check your spacing (did you skip spaces correctly/start in the right stitch) and check the count on the shell directly below this row. Do you have too many DC's?

    1. I figured it out I wasn't skipping two when I was going across the arches. If I think about it enough I figure it out on my own I just panicked lol Thanks for replying.

  18. I am having a problem. I am on row 7 after I have done the DC into next DC, Ch 1 and repeat 8 times.. then skip ch 3 there is not ch 3 space I have the other 10 DC. I am really confused.

  19. I am on my 4th pattern repeat and have way too many ch 3 spaces in between the arches. I have frigged this repeat twice and double checked my stitch count. Any thoughts on where I am going wrong? I have both the written and video instructions.

    1. I would guess too many stitches in the previous row.

  22. I purchased this pattern on Ravelry and was not able to use the coupon code. Am up to row 14 and it is still curling. I have crocheted all my like and I am struggling with reading your pattern, I had to watch the video or I never would have figured it out. Having to re-write the instructions for myself. Ugh. . .

    1. I am sorry the coupon code did not work for you. It seems to be working well for others. And as far as the pattern, You can always send me a message on Ravelry Etsy or Facebook (siena's Maine Design) and I would be happy to help. Patterns work well for some and not for others and we all have a writing style.
      The yarn and hook you are using makes a difference in how the pattern works up. You may even need to block it when you are finished. Pull your work out and lay it flat when you take brakes. It helps the work to pull it self out. Row 14 is still very early. some do not see flattening until the 18th+ rows.
      I hope to hear from you in a message.
      All the best,
      Jonna

  23. I am using the video to do this blanket. How much yarn is needed to make a large blanket

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. That is great. Make sure to watch it on YouTube because that is where I get full credit.
      I would say 2500 yards or more for a good sized blanket and that would be using worsted weight yarn.
      Thank you for leaving a comment.

  25. I've just purchased the pattern, can't make sense of it so trying the youtube video, the written pattern instructions just aren't really clear so will have to re write from the youtube tutorial, so frustrating.
