I consider myself an advanced crocheter, BUT I am not a designer and I am NOT a mind reader. I want to love this blanket but after crocheting and yanking out and crocheting some more I'm done with this one. I don't think the pattern is difficult, just poorly written.

I've pinned this blanket. Thanks for having the pattern right in front.Easier for crocheters.

I've made this blanket twice and had the same error problem reported by dinasthomas, but figured it out. Both blankets were given to new mothers of baby girls and repeatedly I am stopped to thank me again, because their little one's LOVED their blanket. I ALWAYS make a lacy blanket for babies. They are fascinated by the texture and it's very soothing for them.

Thanks for the inspiration. I will make this blanket after this current project I have.

I can't wait to make this for my friend's baby shower!

this is NOT a good pattern for a baby blanket-too many holes for fingers and toes!

I loved this so much that I'm making it for myself using regular Bernat as a lap blanket as well as a baby blanket with Bernat Baby. HOWEVER, there is an error in the pattern, which I found after ripping out row 6 several times. 6th row: Ch 4 (counts as tr). 2 dc in next ch-2 sp. *1 dc in next CL. Ch 3. Miss next 3 dc. 1 dc in next CL. [(2 dc in next ch-2 sp. 1 dc in next CL) twice. Ch 3. Miss next 3 dc] 10 times. 1 dc in last CL. 2 dc in next ch-2 sp. Miss next tr. 1 tr in top of turning ch 4. Turn. The line SHOULD read as follows: 6th row: Ch 4 (counts as tr). 2 dc in next ch-2 sp. *1 dc in next CL. Ch 3. Miss next 3 dc. [1 dc in next CL. (2 dc in next ch-2 sp. 1 dc in next CL) twice. Ch 3. Miss next 3 dc] 10 times. 1 dc in last CL. 2 dc in next ch-2 sp. Miss next tr. 1 tr in top of turning ch 4. Turn. the beginning bracket of the repeat stitches is in the wrong place.
