  2. I love this pattern, and I bought the yarn to make it the other day. However, I have started this and frogged it 4 times now! Somehow I must be missing something in the instructions for Row 1, because it is not coming out to be the 13 (sc Ch2 sc) stitches on each end (I can get 13 at the beginning but only end up with 10 at the other end. I have no idea what I am doing wrong. Is there any help you can give me?? Thanks so much.

    • I’ll check it today for you. Sorry for the delay.

  3. Wow, I love this pattern. So simple and fast to make. Made some for our local Hospital and Baby gifts. Even have use different types of yarn and added more stitches. Comes out so Beautiful.
    Thank You for this Pattern.

    • Bernice,

      Thank you so much for the feedback! I’m working on some more patterns that would be great for donations.

    • How did you add more stitches. I would like to make the blanket a little bigger but don’t know how many stiches to add.

      • Each section of the pattern is 25 sts, so you can increase by any increment of 25. (ex: 25, 50, 75)
        Hope that helps.

  4. Is there a way to print this pattern out? I am trying to do this a work can not have my laptop open.

    • At the bottom of the pattern/post there is a part that says, “Share & Enjoy.” The third one from the right should be a print button. Let me know if you need more help finding it.

  5. This is a very nice pattern for a baby blanket. Would it be all right for me to teach this at one of my crochet classes in the Library. It is a free class, we don’t charge people anything for this, they just bring their own yarn and hook. I’ve been crocheting for years, and years and the Director had asked me to teach a class and I have done so before. So just wanted to ask permission to use your pattern since it is an easy one for beginners and those who have some experience.

    Thank you.

    • Yes! Feel free to use my pattern in your group. I appreciate you asking. I would love to see some pics of your blankets when they’re done!

      • I will do that. Most likely I’ll be doing this in January since right now we are doing scarves and cowls. Thank you for your OK.
