When I saw this pattern on Ravelry, I knew I had to make it...so I'm giving it to my Granddaughter for her 4th Birthday in October. It is lavender...I haven't washed it or blocked it yet. I used Caron One Pounder (took 2 of them and a part of a third). I think I'm going to enter it at our County Fair.

Can you link the pattern for us? I couldn't find it and I love the clarity of the letters. :???:

None of the charts I've found are as clear as these.:thumbsup:

Great job on the blanket!
Thanks for the pattern. I've seen the blanket before but didn't save a link.

Did you see the size hook the pattern recommends? No way could I crochet with Simply Soft and a size D hook!

I'm sure they mean it that small so that the stitches will be tight, but I have trouble using a G hook with worsted weight, much less a D.

Oh my! :faints: Impressive, you should DEFINITELY enter it into the fair! Are those all bobbles??? Man that would take forever!

Me too, Pat! I do best with an H or I for baby yarn and a J or K for worsted.

Did you enter it at your county fair? If so, how did you do?

Yes, Jack...I did! I won a Blue Ribbon...woohoo...also got a blue ribbon for an Amigurumi Lion! I was so happy...it was lots of fun! I was awarded a check for $7.50! I think I had to pay $20 to enter...LOL!
