"This is the 8th or 9th dead link I've hit this morning trying to look at the patterns from one newsletter, i can only presume that the person putting the newsletter together does not have time to check and verify the links."
"New pattern, first time I've seen a picture of it on this site. Unfortunately, there is a problem with the link, when you click on it you receive an "oops" message, that the pattern is no longer available."
"Not sure why you would leave your comment on an entirely different pattern but anyway, the pattern actually specifies and gives step by step instructions on what the chain 5 is- (Bring st back to left-hand needle. K1) 5 times Chain 5 made. Bring st back to left-hand needle. K4tog. Rep from to last 2 (3-1) st(s). Chain 5. Bring st back to left-hand needle. K3 (4-2) tog. Fasten off."

Lovely blanket with a nice detail. I like the idea of the three colors although I am sure you can stick with one color if you prefer. Or use a yarn that has one color slowly fading into another. The instructions are easy to follow and within a short time you will have a beautiful blanket. Thank you.

This baby blanket is visually interesting due to the three colors used. You can really personalize the pattern based on colors in a nursery.
