    Hi Patty, Great tutorial! I can’t wait to try the feather stitch! Could you please tell me the size/weight of yarn you used in your tutorial and the size of Northern Lights hook you used please? Lastly, for a baby blanket what size did you make and what yardage was needed? I hope that’s not too many questions 💜💜💜

      Hi Lana!

      The yarn used was Yarnspirations Simply Soft in “Off White” for the photo used; however, in the tutorial it was Hobby Lobby’s Yarn Bee Soft Secret. The hook used was a Size J/6.00 mm crochet hook. I’m a tight stitcher for reference.

      For the baby blanket, it was a security blanket size of 14 in x 17 in and I took me approximately 1.5 to 2 skeins of yarn.
