I'm with Catlover222. I'm making blankets for my 3rd grandchild expected come April. The pattern for what appears to be the complimentary striped blanket would be welcomed!

I would greatly appreciate clarification in the above picture. I was wondering if another blanket is shown underneath the Soft Harlequin Baby Blanket as well being draped over the arm of the chair. Would it be possible to obtain a copy of that pattern? Thank you for your assistance.

Hello FaveCrafts.com, I love this pattern because we've been needing another square or diamond shaped pattern block besides the Granny Square; not to be disrespecting the Granny Square, which is great for many, many patterns and blanket/afghan components. The Soft Harlequin Baby Blanket diamond shapes fit perfectly for this need. In addition, this is a great idea for those left-overs from other afghans or blankets--your stash will be used up quickly, depending on the size blanket you need. Thank you to Bernat and the designer, and to FaveCrafts for bringing it to us! Sincerely, BigskyDawn (An old crocheter and avid thread painter) Franklin, PA
