- Skill Level: Easy
- Final Size: The pattern creates a blanket that is approx 28” wide and 30” high (ideal for a newborn or carseat/stroller baby blanket). Instructions for adjusting the size are included in the pattern.
- Gauge: Creating 34 starting chains and following the pattern from the start to Row 11 creates a swatch that is 7“ wide and 3.75” high (height measured from “peak” to “peak”).
- Yarn: Approx 1,230 yds / 1,122 m of Size 4 (medium/worsted weight) yarn. You can also use Size 3 (DK/light) yarn (just note that the size of your blanket will be smaller.) I used Patons Canadiana which is medium (4) and 100% acrylic in the colors: Cherished Green, Pale Teal & Cherished Pink. A skein is 3.5 oz / 100 g and 205 yd / 187 m. I used a total of 6 skeins.
- Crochet Hook Size: If using Size 4 yarn, I recommend either a H/8 (5.00 mm) if your yarn is on the lighter side or an I/9 (5.50 mm) hook if your yarn is thicker. If using Size 3 yarn, I recommend a G/6 (4.00 mm) hook. Note that hook size is not important so can choose whatever works best with your yarn. You may want to go up one hook size for the starting chains or to obtain gauge.
- Other Materials: scissors, yarn needle, measuring tape (optional)
- Terminology: Written in English for right-handed crochet using standard US crochet terminology.
