    1. Hi Alison, I just love this pattern, but can't quite figure out the number to chain, I did 62 and that was way to small, can you kinda give me the number that I would chain to make is baby blanket size, patiently awaiting your reply and thanking you in advance. Patti Denemy from Petoskey, Michigan pdenemy@charter.net....Many thanks, keep up the good work.

    2. Hi Patti,
      This pattern can easily be adapted to any size you wish. If you prefer a larger blanket, simply chain a multiple of 3 + 2 sts. Measure to desired width and add multiple rows for desired length. If you ch 62, it should make your finished blanket approx. 21`` x 26``, which is a good size for a stroller or car seat.

  3. I would absolutely love this pattern. I'm pregnant now and could start on it then add the colored trim when we find out boy or girl!

    1. So glad you like the blanket...I made it for my sister who's expecting in Oct. I've started the pattern, but having 2 kids home for the summer, things have been busy. I'm hoping to get it out soon, and I'd love some feedback on it...this one will be a freeby. Will let you know when I post it.

  4. It's an absolutely regal pattern! Although the instructions are somewhat simple.... I am such a beginner I was wondering if you have this published on youtube.com? Thanks in advance

    1. It will not. You may need to go up in hook size, or choose a thicker yarn. Double check that you started out with the correct # of chs.

  7. Almost finished with my baby blanket. I did it in the opposite colors, with the aqua green on the main and cream white for the border. It's a lovely, soft blankie. I used Lion Brand Baby soft for the main, but couldn't find it in cream for the border, so I'll use Bernat for that. I may use this pattern again, but it's taken me a while. I am doing it as a gift for a young friend's first baby. Many of my crochet friends have admired the stitch - so simple! Thanks for providing the free pattern.
