Beautiful. Is this a good one for a beginner???

Kathy Bober

How many stitches do I need to make a baby blanket?


Thank you for this beautiful pattern! I'm doing it as a baby blanket with several colors based on a project photo I saw on Ravelry that caught my eye. Do you have suggestions for how many stitches to cast on for a baby blanket? Thanks again!

Roy R Wilson

Thank you I hope to make this for a dear friend as a surprise, she already said she wants to make it for herself when she can. But I know it will make her happy to have it. I am in Ohio and my friend is in Puerto Rico

Trying to do this pattern slightly different... the 1st 2 rows I want to do in HTC (UK) but if i start in the 4th chain from my hook it doesn't add up. should i try it from the 3rd chain from hook instead?

Penny Delow

I have really loved making this blanket, but stuck for borders, what would you recommend please?

Bonnie Gogolski

Can it be adjusted to make a baby blanket?
If so, how many do I chain to start for one 32 - 36”?


I'm so just loveing this beautiful blanket ..it's just so pretty.. loveing all the wonderful colors...

Debra Gruszkowski

I found, after several starts, that to make this work out, the count must be multiples of 3 plus 1. Otherwise, when you do the rows with the clusters of three, you will end the row with only two stitches left instead of three. So, my blanket is 150 stitches which is 50 sets of 3. Then I needed to add 1 more stitch. That means my first row of double crochets should be 151 stitches.

It’s beautiful very nice I like I will like to make I’m very interesting

Wendy fisher

If I wanted to do a large double that goes over the bed & sides how many sts would I need & how many balls of yarn would I need I am knitting with a 100gram balls plus a huge one

Julia Whitesel

I started with 198 chains, but my first row is off. Is 198 correct for the starting chains? (I've seen other comments about this but can't read any responses.)

Joyce Butler

Thank you. A very pretty and easy pattern.

Debra McClarrinon

I live in Alaska, and I share your passion and enjoyment in crocheting. We have long winters to do relaxing things, and crocheting is the most enjoyable hobby for me. I usually do edgings on fleeced blankets as we have 5 children, 19 grandchildren and 7 great-grand children.Please keep posting ideas, as I'm always looking for something new. This looks like it will go along quickly.


Please subscribe me to your email website. Thanks.

Pretty blanket. Can I make this was a variegated yarn.

Julie Raasch

Is the pattern for the squares anywhere on here? I really like the way it looks.

Thank you,

Celina Taylor

I have crocheted this as a crochet virgin and loved doing it BUT my edges are all over the place. Is it because I haven't followed patern properly or should I have kept counting the sticjes

Debra Atkinson

Exactly what I was looking for

Sheila Karch

Thank you for writing such a clear pattern! So many of the patterns I find are written with so many abbreviations, with no key to what they mean, that I get frustrated and quit. I’ve only actually ever finished one crochet project and that was a baby blanket for my niece, who’s 25 now. This one will be my next finished project and I can’t wait to get started. Just as soon as quarantine ends and the craft stores open again. I have to feel the yarn to make sure it’s soft enough. Crazy, I know, but that’s just how I am. Thanks CAGS in!

Gary Mitchell

Like the pattern. All looking for patterns to learn. Right now, I crochet Afghanis for kids. I know someone who builds bunk beds for kids and I thought this would be great to share with them.


Hey!! I know you say not to worry about the bumpy edges, but if on row 5 you skip the second to last stitch and put your last treble in the last stitch it makes things quite even and lovely if you have no wish to add a border! I’ve done it on two blankets now! (Well, done on one that’s finished, no border, straight sides and lovely, the second will have a border and is a wip!) :)
