Love the blanket, but have no clue what you're trying to do with the stupid chart. It says 31 dc but only shows 15 blocks. You need to write out the directions for those of us who don't read pictures.

Iwas able to bring up the chart Having problems figuring it out when it comes to the grey blocks do you just double crochet into next stich or chain

need help with chart

cannot bring up the chart for the star baby block blanket keeps saying page cannot be found please help! vdiver@gmail.com

cannot bring up the chart for the baby block blanket keeps saying page cannot be fiund!! please help vdiver@gmail.com

I made a similar pattern blanket from the big cat brand and it came out beautiful even though I switched up the colors to suit my own needs (gender and stash wise). I highly recommend giving this blanket a try. I believe you will be pleasantly surprised.

I love the pattern and it is really easy to crochet but I am having a problem putting the squares together. If I use white yarn and slip stitch I don't like the look and if I crochet them together I don't care for the way it looks. What is the best way to put squares together?

Can you please help me? I have printed off the main part of this pattern, but I am trying to "bring up" the pics of the placement blocks of the pattern, ditto also the reading for the chart, I have printed off the star pattern, but everytime I try and do the chart pattern, or the photo placement, it comes up with adverts..... As I do not want or need these adverts, and don't even live in USA, how on earth can I print off these 2 photoes? Help! Ivy

Hi, ivyholmesuk 3771507. I believe you are trying to click on the links for the words "reading" and "photo;" is this assumption correct? If so, these are not image links but are embedded advertisements. Ads on our site are typically sold using contextual technology by large firms such as Google, Vibrant and RGM/Meredith (publisher of Better Homes & Gardens). The only pattern you need to print off is the one that is linked to the words "star pattern" in the materials list. If you have printed that successfully, then you are all set! Hope this helps clarify some things :) --Editors of FaveCrafts

not a real fan of granny squares--love the blocks

I like the look of this, and the color blocks, very cool afghan

It is so cute, and you could cange up the colors easy to suit a girl.

Simple and elegant

I think out of the two choices, This is the one I would most likely make. The other pattern has holes that would let little feet and fingers get caught and hurt.

I like the portability of this pattern... easy to pack up and go.

I like the color combo and I like the blocks and putting them togeter and you can take them with you.

I like this pattern better. I like making blocks and putting them together in interesting combinations.

I like the baby block pattern because of the star in the white block. That, and the choice of colors gives it more interest.

I definitely like the block pattern than I do the granny square. I have used both and I just feel that the block pattern works up better and I feel that it is prettier than the granny square pattern.

I like this pattern better. While it is easy, it has great potential for color combinations and square updates.

While I like both patterns, this block pattern looks crisp and clean and sharp! Plus, it's nice to mix things up by using up left over yarn as an alternative.

I like this one better. It is appealing to the eye and while it would be an easy pattern to make, it has the look of something more difficult.

I like the block pattern better. It looks very soft and the pattern looks pretty easy. It also looks brighter and not as busy as the other one.

I like this one better! It reminds me of a quilt.

this one is easier on the eyes; easy to focus;" feels " calm.

I like this one much better!

I definitely like this one better.

Definitely this one!

Like this one

I wish this pattern could be knitted also. Love the pattern.

You can knit this, this is not very hard, if you need help. let me know

To mrspatches2345: yes, you are right. Each dark block is 2 dc. Each white block is 1 ch & 1 dc. The 1 ch creates a hole, followed by 1 dc which completes the hole. The holes create the fillet star pattern. Your question was posted almost 5 months ago, so I'm hoping you trusted the pattern and everything turned out all right!

Hi I am trying to make this blanket and I am a ltitle confused with the chart. is it saying that every dark sqaure will be 2 dc and each white square to ch 1 then a dc in dc? it just seems a little odd. if anyone could help me i sure would appreciate it. Thank you so much Carol

It would be nice if on all the patterns they would give a key of any abbreviations used. That way us beginners wouldn't have to try figuring it out! thanks

this is sooooooo true

Hi Patti, If you will put your cursor on the underlined 'star pattern above, where it gives you the materials needed, you will get the chart plus the pattern to print out. Just right click on it, Good Luck ! Sissy H.

I would love to make this afaghan but the chart for the star square is not available if there is way to get it please let me know or post on line
