    Este tipo de croche é muito lindo. Gostaria de saber um pouco mais sobre que fio é mais adequado usar, alguma revista que possa me dar mais instruções para faze. Obrigada.Norma.


    I would like to make this with bedspread cotton, as shown on Pinterest. Do You have the instructions for bedspread cotton and a steel needle?

    1. I would really like to make the Charlotte, no instructions at the bottom of the page or any other places I looked

  15. No pattern for the actual baby sunshine blanket. Only for the square.

    1. I found the pattern for the blanket. If you look down beneath the photo and go on down until you see Charlotte’s baby square pattern click HERE and the. It says Charlotte’s baby blanket pattern is HERE. Click on the “Here” and it comes up. It is in Ravelry.

      1. No instructions for the afghan picture posted–just the large square. ?

    2. the link for the Sunshine blanket comes up Ravelry 404 not found

  16. Good afternoon, you say that the baby blanket requires 1 skein of Fresh Cream and 5 Skeins of Gray. Looking at the completed blanket, surely it should be 5 Skeins of cream and 1 of Gray? Your reply would be most welcome.

  17. This such a farce, can’t find any link to the pattern, why advertised it for free, if unable

  18. WOW! Love this pattern! The absolute best part is that the instructions and hints are perfect! A lot of free patterns either have mistakes or don’t explain properly. The pattern instructions are 100% accurate and easy to follow, and the hints are so very helpful. The pattern is gorgeous, using any colours, and the end result is stunning! Working on my first blanket, 3 squares in, but it will definitely not be my last one! Thank you!!

  19. Does anyone have ideas to make this as just one square?

  20. I looked for the pattern- 2024 (I don’t know how old this article is) and the link is working but there is no longer a pattern on raverly for it. I am so disappointed because I made the baby blanket but I need to make it a little bigger and really want the borders that are on this blanket. I am not creative enough to make my own fancy ones.
