I am finding the pattern for the squares and how to join them easy to follow even though it is only the second thing I have crocheted but what does the sp on the border pattern mean

 

Jul 27, 2014

These instructions are horrible. I've been crocheting for over 40 years, have done it all, seen it all and this is awful. Also, when making and giving crocheted blankets, please keep in mind the size of holes that many of these patterns have, they may be cute and beautiful, no question, but are they useful and safe?

I am having the same problem, can't get them connected together. Also what size crochet is being used? The one they say seems to be way to small for me to get them the size they are to be, i'm even trying a size 13 and maybe larger. Help!

This is the second crochet pattern I absolutely fell in love with where the lacy squares ( or motif's) were easy to figure out but in the connecting them, the directions were hard to figure out no matter how many times I have tried. Kind of takes the air out of crocheting for me. It's a beautiful blanket and I really wish this site had video tutorials instead, so much easier to get it when you see it. My brother is having a baby and I really wanted to make this for my new niece, but like the other pattern on here I really loved, and wanted to make for my daughter, I have to toss it. I've been crocheting for about a year and find the written directions to be very confusing and there are few sites that explain the connecting parts, when it comes to the written directions. Unfortunately, I have no one to actually show me how to do them when I'm at a loss. Such a shame as I would have loved this and the other blanket pattern to have become family heirlooms. No wonder no one I know crochets, too hard to figure out the freaking directions. Hence, the one star rating for me.

I am almost half way through this now. The most difficult part is the attaching as you go. The pattern is hard to understand, but I don't know how to say it better. Maybe a youtube video would help. Like Jenny said, once you know the motif the blanket isn't hard, just time consuming. Good luck to all of you who try this. It's worth figuring it out. It's beautiful. The border looks like it tops the afghan off! Love it.

please, please put it on you tube, it is a gorgeous blanket, but I can not understand it. If someone was on you tube, and showed how to join the motiff, it would be so helpful. Thank you in advance.
