Another thing I could suggest for you would be to check out Lion brand yarn's website. They have a free pattern section. You will find many patterns for blankets there and I like that they're rated. They have beginner, intermediate, and advanced labels on patterns for different skill levels. If you don't understand a technique, you can Google, Youtube it, or ask a question here. We also have instructional videos at the top of the page for you to look at, if you haven't noticed.
