This Baby Block Crochet Blanket is so lovely in soft blue and yellow alternating with white blocks. It used a very easy stitch, the double crochet which is very easy to do even for beginners. This baby blanket design would make a lovely christening or shower gift for either a baby boy or a baby girl. Thanks for the pattern. Cheers.

Question When I got to row 3, the key on the chart says "1 block (2DC)" in the darker squares. What's a block? The white squares are called "spaces," which is what I would expect. Thank you.

I believe it's either the blue or yellow squares but I may be misunderstanding. Perhaps this will help clarify: http://com.yarnspirations.pattern-pdfs.s3.amazonaws.com/Bernat_BabyCoordinates003_cr_blanket.en_US.pdf. Thanks, Krista, Editor

Where is the chart?

This pattern has been updated to include the chart. You can click on it to enlarge it as well. Thank you, and sorry for the inconvenience! Julia, editor for AllFreeCrochetAfghanPatterns.com

I can't follow the "chart" as it is. Very hard to discern.

what chart?
