cross stitch

I am getting ready to make this my next project and heard there was a pattern correction. What was the correction? I downloaded the corrected pattern and didn't see any difference from the one I printed. Also, at the end of Row 2 on the blanket, the pattern says to put 2 double crochets into the last stitch? Is this correct or did they mean 1 double crochet? Thanks.

Hi there, I have updated the pattern according to the most current instructions on the Red Heart Yarn site. Hope this helps - thanks!

I have been trying for several days to print out the pattern for the easy baby blanket and hat set. I can't get it to print. My sister - in - law even tried on her computer and it still didn't work. Is there any way I can get a copy of this pattern sent to me. We are expecting our 7th great - grandchild in June. Thanks Marian P.S. I would be glad to pay someone a little somthing to print it and send it to me. Thanks.

If you can not get your computer to print this out maybe you could copy it and them go to your email and send yourself a message with this pattern copied on to it. If you still are not able to print this out please get back to me and I will do it for you at no charge. Or I could send it to you by email?? I hope this will help you if you haven't been already.

Hi Marimey3--Thanks for your comment! You can also try copying and pasting the pattern into a word document and printing it from there. Hope that helps!

Can anyone tell me what the UK equivalent yarn is for this blanket, please? Thanks

What do the abbreviations mean? ch is the only one I can make out. I'd like to try this for my new grandbaby that's on the way. Thanks in advance for any help.

Pattern is nothing like the picture you have here

It seems that this yarn is no longer available

I managed to work it out for the 6th row which is in fact the repeat of the 2nd row I think what was confusing is the numbers on the side 1.2.3 which is not the row number Hope this helps others

Im also having probs understanding from row 7 did row 6 no probs now I dont understand ??? Inst say repeat rows 2-5 surely that cant be right should it be 3-6

Very cute baby in the picture, & I'm liking the blanket so far. I'm having trouble though at Row 7, which says "Rows 6 -65" - & says to repeat rows 2-5 fifteen times. Should it be to repeat rows 3-6 fifteen times?

I LIKE IT

THIS IS TOO CUTE I LOVE IT

For those looking for a larger image of the pattern, you can go directly to the Redheart Yarn website at www.redheart.com and view the pattern and enlarge it to full page view. Hope this helps!

Hello crafty friends! Just wanted to let you know that we updated this pattern! Hopefully that should help clear up any confusion. If you're still having trouble, please let us know and we'll do our best to fix it! Thanks again and have a wonderful day!

with the HAT ; ROUND 6- I believe the * * is miss placed and it should be *ch 2, 3 dc in next ch-1 space, ch 2, skip next 2 dc, sc in next dc** this will also help make round 7 understandable

Ok Im a novice and trying to make this blanket. The directions are confusing me! LOL The repeats * are confusing me- do you do what is before the* again or only between * and **. I have pulled it out twice because neither way seemed to look right. Could someone who has successfully completed this help me out so I can get my new great niece this blanket before she is walking? thanks for your help!

repeat from begining of row2 ie ch 3 Hope this helps

i am having problems understanding rows 6 and 7. I don't understand what you mean by space. for ex. line 7 says: slip st in next ch- 2space, ch3 . can you simplify this step more? thank you

with the HAT ; ROUND 6- I believe the * * is miss placed and it should be *ch 2, 3 dc in next ch-1 space, ch 2, skip next 2 dc, sc in next dc** this will also help make round 7 understandable

I love your site and I have copied several patterns. But this last one I copied it is really just too SMALL for me to read. I do not object to having to use more ink and paper so please enlarge the patten or tell me how to do it. "One easy ball baby blanket and hat

Can you please help me, I can get the chain and the 1st row to turn out until I get to the end of row 1 where it says dc in last chain, turn. I have 3 chains left over after I do my last set of 5 dc's, it seems that I am having problems with the ends of each of the rows, I have done three rows so far and the majority of the blanket I can see the pattern except at the end of each row, it all looks like a jumbled up mess, is there any way you can simplify the instructions a bit for me? thank you so much, I so want to make this blanket if I could just figure out how to do the ends of each row. It really is a very pretty blanket. BTW I just learned how to crochet about a month ago so I really am new to all this, lol.

I also had a couple of chains over but figured I could work them into the border I turned & its working out ok

Very pretty

I hope you all keep trying this pattern - it really is worth it! the edges came out fine on mine. It is a bit confusing but once you get the repeat figured out you are off and running! If I can be of any help, let me know!

Row 2: Ch 3, dc in first dc, * ch 2, skip next 2 dc, sc in next dc, ch 2 **, 3 dc in next ch-1 space; repeat from * to last 2 sts, end at **; skip next ch, 2 dc in next ch; turn. how do you do this , i get ch 3, dc in first dc and ch 2, but rest is confusing, simplify if you can, help please.

I agree when you get into it Its quite easy & looks pretty

It would help if there was a close-up of the projectit's too hard to see what it's supposed to look like.

one ball? you guys are lucky if you can get balls of wool that are 450+g in weight! standard in the UK is 50g or 100g.. so I'm going to need another 3 balls of my chosen yarn to make this.. argh.

Sarah you can also get 400grm balls of yarn and sometimes 500grm balls of yarn...... Try looking online and you'll see what i mean. Hope this helps.

I think it is better to have a pic of the pattern, the instructions for blanket is not enough

I can not get the pic to copy!!!!!

you can copy and past into a doc.

Is anyone else having problems with the edges but meee? they look like crap... will they straighten out when I put the border on? or should I unravel and start over...? sure a lot of work thus far....

Slip st in next dc, (slip st, ch 1, sc) all in next dc, *ch 2, 3 dc in next ch-1 space, ch 2 **, skip next 2 dc, sc in next dc; repeat from * around, end at **; join in first sc. What does * mean
