NO COMMENT. I JUST COPY THE PATTERN ONTO A TABLET SHEET AND GO AND CROCHET IT. WORKS FOR ME.
I wish there was a way to print these patterns. I don’t need a video but sure would like to have the pattern in my hand for future uses.
Hi Marsha! You are welcome to save this pattern by copying and pasting into a word document or by printing the pattern via the printer icon on the left hand side of your screen. Hope this helps! – Nicola, Editor
Is there a video for this pattern? Particularly the boarder. I make baby blankets to donate and always have trouble with boarders.

Hi! everytime I click on a link in one of your emails I’m taken to a page to sign up for premium or charter membership whatever you call it with no option to say no thank you!! The only option is to sign up or close the internet. I don’t like that! I feel like I’m being forced to sign up and pay or forget it.
Thanks for letting us know. We’ve asked our tech team to look into this issue. – Nicola
I totally agree with what roberta July 18, 2020 is saying. More or less it’s pay up or go elsewhere for your patterns. Not all of us can afford to pay for subscriptions, no matter how good they are or how much we want to.
Nicola you replied that you’d ask your tech team to look into it – that was back in September 2020 and the issue remains the same. I do appreciate all the hard work you and your team put in but sorry to say the only option for people like me that can’t afford it is to unsubscribe from your emails.
Hello! I’m sorry that you are having trouble. Please reach out to our customer service team for assistance: https://www.ilikecrochet.com/contact-us/
Thanks! – Nicola, Editor
There is a not now option at the bottom of the sign up page
I’m wondering if this pattern could be tripled to make a larger blanket and be a stash buster.
It most definitely can be made any size you want
Is there a picture of the blanket? It’s difficult to decide to make one without knowing what it looks like.
Can you give me diagram on how to make a block
Go to YouTube, search for crochet corner to corner baby afgan. You’ll find many videos of people making this afgan.
