I've started the blanket.  =D  I'm making mine in hot pink and black.  I don't know if I'm going to do it the size of a baby blanket and use it as a rug/bed throw, or make it a full sized blanket for me.  I'm on round seven and I just changed to black yarn.  I didn't have a problem with the pattern at all, it worked fine for me.  I used the original pattern, too.  I've been crocheting for about five years (wow, it's been that long?!), but I don't really consider myself an advanced crocheter.  If anyone needs help with this pattern PLEASE let me know and I'll do my best to help!

Ugh, I used such fine yarn that my blanket is taking forever!  I counted and I'm well past 400 stitches per round now, which seems like a heck of a lot!  I have 21 rows and it's less than 2 feet from one point to the opposite side, so I think I have a LOOOOONNNNGGGG ways to go, yet.

Here's what I have so far, I'm planning to edge it in light blue when it's a bit bigger...


I put this down for a long time and then just picked it up to work on it recently and I have been skipping the dc in the first stitch right after the shell on the point.  It SEEMS to be working out ok, so I'm not sure if I should start doing it or leave it out.  What if I finished this row but then added it back next row, would that work out do you think?

What kind of yarn are you using? I'm using a pretty lightweight yarn too, Lips sealed

I'm using this stuff: http://store.knitting-warehouse.com/yarn-coats-tlc-baby.html and I think my hook is a G, but I'm not sure.  I seem to crochet pretty tight, each row is only about 3/4 of a centemeter, just over a quarter inch!

I'm using http://store.knitting-warehouse.com/068075.html, which is also a sportweight.   Yup, this project is going to take a while! I'm 6 rows in.

I know this is an old thread, but I just had to add how great this blanket is and thank all of the people who have put up tips on the pattern.  I started crocheting last spring and I FINALLY know somebody having a baby, so I did a search for baby stuff and decided I had to give this a try.  I'm going with a crimsonish red and black in Caron Simply Soft, and I love how it's turning out so far Smiley

I love this blanket!!!! I'm on my second baby blanket, but mine aren't nearly as cute as that.

Inspired by these posts, I made this blanket for my cousin's new baby.  It is in DK weight cotton-acrylic blend (Cotton Rich by Patons).
