Easy

Crochet Hook: I/9 or 5.5 mm hook

Yarn Weight: (4) Medium Weight/Worsted Weight and Aran (16-20 stitches to 4 inches)

Crochet Gauge

12 sc + 16 rows = about 4 in. (10 cm).
When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Finished Size: About 36 x 36 in. (91.5 x 91.5 cm)

I had to look at the photo and the pattern a couple times. Now I get it and it is different and looks like a great blanket to make. Really is not difficult, you just have to follow the directions a bit more closely. I love the colors. Just perfect for a little one and I love the name. Thank you.

Another cute and unique baby blanket that I would like to do soon for a gift. Great for a baby girl or a baby boy. Excellent idea that the pattern is right in front of the page. Thanks to the designer.

must do this soon
