    Hello,

    This is my first post here. How did you keep the smaller amounts of yarn from coming out and did you back the blanket with fabric to hide the short stitches? I'm not positive I'm explaining myself in an understanding way but I'm hoping you know what I'm talking about. Thanks so much for posting all the info - I've wanted to do a blanket like this for a long time but have been a bit afraid, not knowing everything about the technique. Thank you, Beverly

    I wove the ends in. There were a lot of them. I guess you could back it but I didn't. I'm not fond of that look though I have seen it done. I found tying a loose knot to keep holes from appearing worked the best. Then I wove in the ends. At first I thought I lost my mind trying something like this but I love they way it turned out. The key is not having a lot of colors. Good luck!

    Thank you SO much! My 6 yr old grandson has been in love with ANYTHING lobster since he was 2 (I have no idea where they found lobster jammies!) and has at least 30 plush ones of different sizes - I'm going to make him a blanket with a huge lobster on it - using only 2 colors red and either a sea blue or sea variegated blue. It's about 100 x 150. I'm going to use the same hook you did. Starting it tonight - wish me luck! With your wonderful help I think I'll be ok and it will look good. Thank you! Thank you!!
