Mixed Stitch Crochet Blanket Update

I'm still working on the Mixed Stitch Blanket Crochet Along.   You aren't seeing triple.   I have started over for the third time.   I wasn't happy with the cluster row (the one that has the zig-zag line through the middle of it).

It doesn't really show in the photo, but the triple crochets aren't flat and make the blanket look puckered along that section.  

In between the first and second start, I chained 38 and started working on a mixed stitch pillow top.  That right edge looks pretty jagged and will definitely need some kind of border.  

Then I decided to order Basic Crochet Stitches by Erika Knight.  Several of the stitches that are in the crochet along come from this book.  

I found out that I wasn't doing the treble crochet the right way.  I have always done just one yarn over, but when I do it this way, the blanket lays nearly flat.  That was worth the price of the book.

I'm not sure what I'll do with the first two pieces that I've started.  Any ideas??????

I hope you have some time to take a few stitches today.

Thanks for visiting!
