Fantastic pattern with such fantastic results! Bev's 5-Day Newborn Blankie by Beverly A. Qualheim is a lovely blanket with a wonderful texture which creates a little scalloped edge, as a natural part of this pattern so you won't need to add a border. The size of this lovely baby blanket can be easily adjust to larger or smaller by simply changing the starting chain.


About 20 oz total yarn – hard to measure, as I used up some of ‘this color' and some of ‘that color'!  Great stash buster!
I used a mixture of Caron Simply Soft yarn (worsted weight – 10 ply in UK), and Lion Brand Pound of Love (also worsted weight), and various other similar weight soft yarns. I mixed types of yarn and it turned out great!  Use up your odds and ends.

Size H crochet hook (5.00 mm)

approx. 34″ x 37″

    1. Once you learn how to hold the yarn and how much tension to apply it is easy from there. As a newlywed I was home alone all day with not much to do. I picked up a childs beginner crochet kit and the rest is history. Next I learned to knit starting out the same way. Needles and tension were more difficult for me so the elderly lady next door came home one afternoon with yarn and patterns to make mens argyle socks. It tool me all day to get about half way on a leg portion only to have her take one look and rip out the whole thing saying I had dropped a stitch! My heart sank but I did master it and made several pair of socks, sweaters for Christmas presents, vest for my husband, and any number of afghans (knit and crochet). I prefer crochet for those. Go for it.
