This is a beautiful Lacy Violet Baby Blanket! I wish I knew how to knit. I crochet and would love it if some one make a crocheted pattern for this beautiful pattern. Do you have a crochet pattern for this one? If so, please send a link.. Thanks, and fingers crossed!

This is a beautiful blanket but the pattern doesn't give the number of skeins needed or the total yardage, only what yarn was used and the number of yards in one skein.

How many balls of yarn are needed for the Lacy violet baby blanket, it doesn't say?
