Im trying to make this for a friend and Im finding the written pattern confusing and the tutorial wont play it just keeps playing ads.


Love this pattern. Quick and easy to make. I made 2 blankets this spring for my Great Grandchildren born in May. One in pink, the other in blue.

What could be better than a one skein baby blanket? This pattern would be ideal when you want to whip up a quick baby shower gift. Plus, I absolutely love the pretty pink yarn.

I am always looking for a new pattern that I can share with my crochet class. This is just the type of pattern that I love to introduce. I provide the yarn and pattern and in return ,the participates donate the finished product for donation to local charities or hospitals. Thanks.

I just love patterns like this. I love to crochet and gift to family, friends, and neighbors and just about anyone in need. This type of pattern is special because it takes little to create and is the perfect size for baby. I like to keep a couple blankets on hand and this is the perfect pattern for that.

This is a very nicely sized baby blanket. Much larger than most. This would make an excellent blanket for use in the crib or even to lay on the floor as a clean and soft play area for baby. I love the color of this pink. Pink is my favorite color and I had no girls, I am the mother of 3 boys. Needless to say, they did acquire a few pink items.

Hi! I am not sure if you are referring to a specific pattern or any popcorn stitch baby blanket. You can take a look at our popcorn stitch patterns and see if you find what you're looking for. Thanks, Krista, Editor

Does anyone have the baby popcorn pattern Than-You

Someone should correct the name of this blanket. It is NOT a one skein blanket, unless it refers to a one pound skein. Also no size is listed for the finished blanket.

Hi - yes, this project uses one skein of one pound yarn. The finished size is 34"/86.5 cm wide x 35"/89 cm long. The pattern above has been updated to include this information. Our apologies! Julia, editor for AllFreeCrochetAfghanPatterns

I am sorry I am not able to download a video of this. If you would like for me to send it to you personally my addy is the Precious as listed above with the 5 numbers following at yahoo. com. I will be happy to send it to you to see if it will help someone out.

Justbe in bev Once you ave completed row and ch for row sk a stitch dc in next stitch this is the first half of your crossover look of the stitch to complete the second half of your crossover you back up so to speak and do a dc in that space you skipped that stitch so to speak It is important when skipping a stitch to remember you will be dc in that stitch for the last half of the crossover Hope that makes sense I am making this blanket and when I started on it this morning mine started having a wave in it as well and when I carefully went back and reviewed my work I saw I was not skipping a true stitch I was doing a dc in the first half of the crossover and it was making it bunch up some If I can figureRead More out how to post a pic I will I am a visual learner at times too

is there a video tutorial for this? I am confused and would like to see it done for I am a beginner in crocheting. I am interested in your one skein baby blanket.confused about row 2. sk next st. dc in next st. then dc in skipped st. Again I am a beginner

What is completed size of this baby blanket?

I tried to do this pattern yesterday, I followed the pattern and thought it was very easy, however I ended up with a wavy look. I'm thinking it should be flat. Help?

I am a beginner in crocheting. I am interested in your one skein baby blanket.confused about row 2. sk next st. dc in next st. then dc in skipped st. This may be a silly question ,but do I just go on in pattern of skip one dc another or am I to go back to the original skipped st.

When you go back to the skipped stitch, you will be making a X or crossover looking stitch. Just follow the directions like they say and you will get the hang of it. I have not done this pattern but I have done the X kind.... Hope that helps you.

I love this pattern. So simple!

One skein of what? It would be helpful to know what yarn to use. Caron one pounder?

I'm not sure what the designer used one skein of to make this blanket. But it took me 2.5 skeins of the 6oz/170.1g/315 yds/288m skeins of Caron Simply Soft Medium (4) yarn.

This is not 1 skein blanket I have used 4 skeins.

Here's a link to the free pattern on The Caron page has a few more detailsfinished size, yarn amount, larger photo. (Yes! that's a cross stitch in double crochet.)

No link...

Here is the link http// == t.html

I am about to finish this adorable baby blanket. So easy and wonderful . More please!

what size yarn did you use?

I'm sorry, I thought I could read patterns, but in row 2 "*sk next st, dc in next st, dc in skipped st; repeat from *" where it says "dc in skipped st" in the previous row (row 1), there is no "skipped st", there are 93 sc stitches. Unless there are really three rows -- first row is sc in chains, 2nd row is "dc and skip a stitch to end" (alternating dc and skip a stitch), then third row is as the row 2 describes. ??? Please explain?

I wondered this too and looked for other patterns with the same type of instructions. It seems that is a special type of stitch/design... "CROSSED DOUBLE: Skip next st, dc in next st or space, working in front of last dc, dc in last skipped st or space."

Row 2 is incorrect. Please send me the correct instruction for row 2! Thanks.

Looks pretty; I teach disabled adults to crochet & am always looking for quick & easy patterns. Looking to try it myself first.

so pretty so easy
