dansk, that's beautiful!  The colors and the striping pattern really worked out nicely...

I started one of these a while ago and it's already pretty big, but it's one of those nice mindless relaxing patterns to work once you get to the longer rows.  The problem is that it's getting too big for me to take on the train (I do most of my projects on my endless commute) and now I'm working on other stuff... I'll get back to it someday!!   Wink

 Cheesy YAY! I finished my star shaped baby blankies!

I love the dark pink, lime and light pink one the best. I made two so far but it is so much fun I started another one with super soft microfiber yarn.

Here's the baby boy one (in Spiderman colors):

And the baby girl one:

Cute, eh?

stef-in-stitches: thanks for the compliment on the color selection. I love how you made it even better with the high-contrast skinny-white stripe. Great job!

Guys, I'm having some serious issues with the first round of this thing.  I've read through all links and posts, except the livejournal ones because I can't view the comments. 

This is really frustrating me. 

I end up every time with four holes, and long 'tail' hanging off the end, which is the beginning of my beginning chain.  What am I doing wrong?

UGH.  This time I managed to get the first and second rounds looking alright, but when I got into the third round, and used the photos here:
for reference, my holes did not line up with each other, rather, my chain 2 spaces were at the ends of the 'spokes' of the middle, if that makes any sense.  I've ripped out the entire thing, done it over again, and still have the same problem.

You know i do love this pattern, i actually found the pattern (the one given in the first post) a while back and i haven't gotten to it yet but i wanted to ask what you all do when you switch colors?

do you just tie it off and star on with a new color? or do you do something special? because i have a thing about changing colors... i end up with all these knots that stick up, no matter how much i try to hide it i just can't. is there a secret to it or is it just something you have to deal with?

(edited for a typo that was bothering me lol)

When I change colors I pick up the new color and crochet with both for at least 5 stitches (or until the tail of the old color runs out). That way I can just cut the ends off that are sticking out, no weaving ends in and no knots.
