a great pattern i have made this one twice

I think this is a really vibrantly colored blanket, and so it should be a favorite for any growing baby. I make baby blankets regularly, 16 grandchildren and now lots of my daughter's friends are having babies too.

I reallly like all three versions of the baby blanket. I have just recently learned to crochet the granny square baby blanket and I will definitely do these! Fern

I love that this afghan has three vesions. It looks like it is quick and when all of your daughters' friends are having babies, there are a lot of requests for me to make baby afghans.

I like the granny square blanket better than the blocks blanket.

I think this pattern is more fun than the blocks.

The Granny Blanket is livelier to me. Looks like fun to make.

I really like this one better. To me it is a lot quicker to make and if you have to stop quickly its easy to figure out where you are at.

I really like this one better.

I really do like this the best it is easier to do all faster.

I like the way the pattern is and it is so pretty in different colors the way it is set up.

I really like this pattern. I love the fact that there are various variations, and therefore there are a lot of options on how to make it the way everyone likes it best.

This is definately the better pattern can't wait to try it!!!

I definitely like this one better. I already made this one once. Plan on making another.

Love this pattern. Absolutely adorable.

I love this pattern. It's different. And appears to be an easier read for us beginners. Thank you!

Would make it right now!#2vers 2 have 8 more rows left on this one.

I would make this blanket for someone who was going to have their first child!

I like this one better because I'm a little more partial to granny squares. They are easier to put together and there are so many variations color-wise and pattern-wise.

I like like the Granny square three way it is easy and simple

Granny 3 ways is my choice. Colourful and no sewing up!! Make it while watching TV or talking, no problem.

I would choose the baby granny 3-ways one, I don't like sewing projects together. crochet mom

This version is one of those mindless patters that are so very easy to do. I like the look of Granny squares---but hate tucking in the ends of blocks! This would be the one for me!

I like the Granny Sq. better no thinking and no sewing together after.

I just like the looks of this one better. So cute. Can't wait to I am able to do something like this (I'm only a beginner).

I like this one because it can be done faster and you really don't have to think about what you're doing. Just get on it and "git 'er done!!" :-)

Looks much faster and wouldn't tire of making it as quickly

This one is a lot more interesting.

Cannot tell you how many times I've used this pattern, not only for baby blankets, but larger afghans for sofas, chairs, beds, etc. It's an easy pattern, you can choose the colors and yarn and it works up fast. Kind of a 'no-brainer' that can be done while watching tv or listening to music. Love it.

I like this blanket better because it would work up a lot faster and I really like the color combinations to0.

I prefer this pattern as it is quicker and more versatile. Sharon

I love this...a person could make any color combination they wanted to...I've been wanting to make an afghan in the round and here's my chance ! ! !

I like the Granny Baby 3 ways - will try to adapt it for the 18" doll

This is the one for me!

I love the Granny Baby 3 ways. I will make this one

love this version as sewing squares together is not my thing. You can make several by changing colors and they never look the same!

I love this little baby afghan. I don't like to sew squares together. This type of afghan goes together quickly and there is so much you can do to change it up just by color changes. jch1224

These make me think of the "never ending granny square" pattern I've used for years. I like to do 3 dc + ch 1 instead of the 2 dc + ch 1. I think it makes it more solid-looking.

I love the all in one granny and rather not sew pieces together

I love doing an all in one granny square!! I haven't done this pattern but I have done a lot of one big granny square, I use white cloud yarns and they turn out wonderful. I know some kids 5 years old still using their blankets I made them.

I like this one best esp in the green blue yellow colourways. Looks like it would last for a long time.

I prefer this one.

I like this one because it can be done 3 ways & that helps me when I need more than one at one time

Like this one the best

I think this pattern is more interesting than the other one.

I love this pattern because there is no sewing involved!! I always do one piece afghans!!

Hi, viftoo 7775476. For specific questions about the pattern instructions, I would suggest the following options: 1. You can contact the pattern designer directly for help.

I need help with the 'X' stich and the corner instructions. Please advisebr br Vivian Franklinbr

pictures 1 and 3 do not show up! Please fix!

I also do not see pictures 1 and 3. Please fix this..

The pictures of Version 1 and 3 don't show up for me. Is there any way that they can be fixed or someone can send me what they look like? I really like to know what something is supposed to look like before I make it. Thank you.

I printed out the directions, but do not understand the "X" stitch or the corner instructions It's very pretty and want to make it for a present.
