I found 2 video tutorials and free standard download on a blog, I want to make a blanket for my sister-in-law who is about to arrive from travel to spend a few days here at home, I'd like to introduce her with a beautiful work of crochet that she loves. I'm in doubt what tutorial to follow and what standard to use. She's 47 years old, please see the pattern and help me by giving your opinion!

i don't actually see the pattern on that site.  the photo in your post is of a v-stitch variation stitch pattern.  which won't be the easiest kind of granny square to make, or fastest---if time is a concern.

I guess i am not sure what you are asking?  i don't have an opinion on the pattern because I don't see where the pattern is linked.  but if time is a concern, and if you don't enjoy weaving in a lot of ends, I wouldn't try to make the one in your photo.

This looks like it might be one of those sites that is created to generate traffic, but provide little useful content.  There's no pattern there for the multi-colored photo at the top of the page, the videos are for other squares (which are nice, just aren't the top one.  The text hotlink goes to a scrunchy pattern.

Are you looking for a pattern similar to the top photo?  I sort of agree on 'lots of end weaving isn't fun', but it might be really pretty if you used a variegated yarn with long, graduated color sections.

V Stitch patterns (free); note V stitch isn't 1 stitch, but a family of stitches.  I couldn't find one that looks exactly like your picture.

You mentioned that your sister was coming and it sounded like 'soon', so this pattern is V-stitch but uses several strands held together & a big hook, and could be made quickly.  My own personal opinion is that this sort of blanket isn't quite as nice looking as one with with a less bulky process, but they are soft and warm.

Welcome to Crochetville!

How experienced are you as a crocheter (beginner, easy, intermediate, or difficult patterns)?  I consider myself an intermediate crocheter.  If I do an easy afghan throw and spend 5 or more hours every day on it, I can complete it in about 1.5-2 weeks.  Some people crochet faster and some slower than me.  I think my speed is about average.  The reason that I say this is because you said "about to arrive" and you want to gift it to her while she's here.  How long until she actually arrives, assuming you want it done by then? 

Your experience level and time frame are important in picking a pattern, whether you decide on a throw or a scarf or a kitchen accessory (potholder, dishcloth, cup cozy.)  Do not try for a blanket larger than a throw, if your time frame is short.

Good luck!

Você mencionou que sua irmã estava chegando e soou como 'logo', então este padrão é V-stitch, mas usa vários fios mantidos juntos e um grande gancho, e poderia ser feito rapidamente. Minha opinião pessoal é que este tipo de cobertor não é tão bonito como um com um processo menos volumoso, mas eles são macios e quentes.



very thanks, <3
