Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

Would like to make this smaller for a baby blanket. Does anyone know what the multiples are? Or how many chains to make a baby blanket? It does not seem that these comments are moderated by the website so i am asking fellow crocheters to answer if they made this afghan into a baby blankets. Thanks!

I'm brand New at reading patterns and aama little cconfusd about row 1. Where is the first suppose to go and what is the repeating pattern?

This pattern sounds very easy and a big project like this is a great way to keep busy during the colder months. I think this pattern and netflix will be my companions this winter!

i like to try all these designs thankyou.

I love this pattern. I am in the process of making one very similar but not quite as pretty. I plan on using your edging on the afghan I'm now in the process of crocheting. Thank you for such a lovely pattern.

Love your patterns I made the baby blanket made a matching hat and now I'm working on this pattern love it you're the greatest

Yes, I would like to know the answer too on Row 1

ON ROW 1 IT STATES REPEAT FROM* TO ** THERE IS NO SINGLE * TO REPEAT FROM!

Looking at the pattern logically, I think it should read like this ...ch 153, shell in 6th ch from hook, skip 2 ch, dc in next ch, skip 2 ch,..." The repeating pattern seems like it should be "shell in 6th ch from hook, skip 2 ch, dc in next ch, skip 2 ch"

Very pretty!

maybe she just need a pattern nothing wrong with giving

it is a very nice pattern I would like to print it so that I can try it

I do not understand what you mean --report abuse kindly remove my name and email from your project

just remove my name from any thing concerning you I do not want problems or for publication any how I love to crochet and I was only trying to get some patterns if I annoy you I am sorry
