Nice choice! It is an easy pattern and you should have no problems with it for most of the stitches are single crochet. You might want to get some information on double crochet stitch and triple crochet stitch. www.nexstitch.com has videos to do both of these stitches. Help is only a question away.

I think that the above is an excellent suggestion! :mrgreen:

I know way more about crochet than I do about knitting, and I agree that the pattern looks simple. I have problems with mis-counting when I crochet, so just make sure you pay attention to everything you need to keep track of and you'll probably be fine.

Good luck and we're here if you need us! :thumbsup:

yes, this looks like a very simple pattern. Some crochet stitches are very complex just because crochet has fewer "rules" than knitting: since you only ever have one live stitch at a time (usually) you can put stitches in all sorts of places and change them in sooooo many ways, but this is a very simple and attractive pattern.
good choice

Looks cute Susi. I may have to crochet one for a friend who just had a baby. :) and you know if you get stuck just give me a shout. I haven't covered a treble crochet in class yer but those are easy.

Susi,

Thanks for the pattern, it does look like a very nice blankie, and one that I don't have in my book.

The only place you might have a problem is in the border area, and we can help you with that.

Crochet is what I do when stressed out on a knitting project,and it's a great way to destash.
