  1. I am still too much a novice to the crochet world, however, I LOVE this pretty baby blanket! Is there any way that you could going forward label your directions as beginner, intermediate, etc. and / or post more video tutorials of how to do these stitches for somewhat inept people like me? Thank you!

  2. Thank you so much for your beautiful patterns. Every thing I make I donate to our local shelters. I hope this is allowed?

  3. If I wanted to make this larger, what are the multiples? I love this stitch and your colors are beautiful!

  4. Love it. This will be my next project for the charity program I am in. Thank you for this beautiful blanket.

  5. I LOVE this pattern. I love doing “chevron” patterned blankets, but always want some extra “pretty” to the stitching rather than simply using SC or DC for the whole thing and it being simple looking if that makes sense.

    Anyway I thought I would try to make this pattern into a “chevron” design…. its do-able, but let me just tell you it’s a pain in the butt working it out! (The top /\ was easy, the bottom \/ is where it’s being tricky for the 2nd+ rows!) LOL I think I finally got it though and can’t wait to see how it turns out!

  6. I have just began crocheting and loving this pattern thank you so much. I am however a wee bit confused as to how to finish it off. Can I just single crochet into every stitch?

    1. Hi Babz, I just left it as is – but you are welcome to finish it off with a row of single crochet too if you feel like it looks better that way!

  7. I am making this as a regular (not baby) afghan for my daughter and son-in-law. They are remodeling their basement. However, I didn’t make it a wide as it probably should be. I only started crocheting about 10 months ago and most of my afghans have been granny square or granny chain. The granny chain “grows” considerably wider as I work, so I thought this would, as well. But it didn’t “grow” much. I know this blanket looks beautiful without a border, but can you suggest a border that would look good and help to make it a bit wider? BTW, I love this pattern!

  8. I’ve been making swatches to practice the pattern but I’m not sure what I’m doing wrong. Seems I’m coming up with a lot of space in between stitches and I’m not getting the same textured look like your finished product. Please do a tutorial on YouTube because this is a gorgeous design. Help!

  9. Your patterns are so unique. I have been crocheting 57 yrs. No patterns. She could copy anything. Going to try your baby afghan.

  10. Hi I have done this pattern in all white for my friend who’s sone & daughter in-law are expecting, but she us wanting to pay me for it, I don’t have a clue of how to price it, could you possibly help please. I’ve also done a matching new born baby cardigan in this stitch too again, how much should I tell her? I used baby soft yarn in double knit which for 3x 50g balls was £2. Then it took me only a day to make. So how do I work out my costing to make this? I’m new to this & started crocheting last Oct & havent stopped doing blankets, cushion cover, baby cardigans, blankets & hats & I’ve even done myself a jumper & shrug too, along with hat & scarf for the hubby 🙂

    1. Hi Patricia, Its very personal how you choose to price an item. I have never sold my knits because I find that its a labour of love – so I just make gifts for friends and family. I’m sorry I can’t offer much more advice here as I do not sell the items I make (only the patterns for how to make them). You could take a look on Etsy and see what people charge for similar items.

  11. I saw this on Pinterest and fell in love. Just finished my first baby blanket using this pattern and it is beautiful and for my niece’s baby. Thanks for the multiplies. I made mine a bit wider and added two more blocks of color. I have two more blankets and a scarf started g this stitch. They will go to a charity here in Texas. Works up fast and is just lovely. My new favorite stitch. Thank you so much for this pattern.
    I saw one post about finishing off using single crochet. I left mine as is cause I love the little loops on the sides. But I did add an extra row at the end and the on the foundation row I did a row repeat. I’m very pleased with how it turned out. Your pattern instructions are so easy to follow. Thanks again for sharing.

  12. love the blanket. thanks for the free pattern to attempt making it. I am always confused whether the crochet hook only goes through one side of the loop or go through both loops before proceeding.

  13. I love this, I am always looking for new baby blanket patterns, and this is wonderful..I am starting on it this afternoon … 2 of my bowling friends are going to be new grandmothers this spring and this is the perfect gift…

  14. You do absolutely beautiful work! You motivate me to get busy! Your color choices and stitches make for a very crisp, clean-cut look! What a nice gift to give!!

    1. Hi Karen! It’s truly heartening to know that my work inspires and motivates fellow crocheters. Your compliments about the colour choices and stitches have genuinely brightened my day ❤️❤️❤️
