Would you please tell me what the multiple is for making this blanket larger. Thanks

Hello! Here is a resource that should help. Happy crocheting! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7CjmtzwtwHQ -Kristin, Editor for FaveCrafts.com

I've been looking for a different pattern for a baby blanket and I think this one will work great! I like this Sweet Squares Adorable Crochet Baby Blanket Pattern, it's so easy to whip up and the stitches are so easy to do. I wish there was a picture showing what the stitch pattern should look like to make sure I'm doing it right.. I'm going to make one in blues for the lady next door who just had a son.. Thank you so much for sharing this free crochet baby blanket pattern.

This is such a cute baby blanket pattern. I love the pattern, it is so easy to read. If I am reading it correctly, each row is just hdc followed by ch 1. Sometimes it is hard for me to picture what the pattern will look like until I am actually making it. I think I will change the purple on this and make it or my sisters baby, due in October.
