Tilted Lace Baby Blanket

Nothing is more fitting for a delicate newborn than a delicate, lacy baby blanket. Made using size 5 crochet thread, the Tilted Lace Baby Blanket uses cluster and puff stitches and a mix of baby blues and pinks to create a gentle, textured blanket.

Skill Level:  Intermediate

Size: approximately 42” × 59” (107cm x 150cm)

Gauge: Approximately 23 dc and 8 rows in pattern = 4”/10cm with swatch very relaxed. This yarn is very stretchy, so don’t pull on swatch to measure gauge.

    Could anyone help… I have begun to make this blanket – but the ends of the 2nd and 3rd row do not end where the pattern states. This is despite taking out the stitches 2x and recounting and checking I had done everything correctly. I am an experienced crocheter and rarely have this problem – Has anyone else come across this in this pattern and do you have a suggestion!
