  1. For the 1 ball Caron cake baby blanket: I’d like to make the blanket MUCH larger as I have many carin cakes. Could you please tell me what the stitch count is (or multiples)for the pattern as well as the “plus 2” or however many the PLUS is for the starting chain
    Does that make sense??

  2. I had to try this pattern. I made mine a bit larger in in blues, Brown, off white, and tweed. I also added a nice border to finish it off. Thank you.

  3. This is going to be my next project, can’t wait to finish the one I am currently doing to have a go at this! Thank you for sharing such beautiful inspiring works ? I have shared this on my FB page, I hope that’s ok? There are many, many more I would like to do after looking through your photographs! Looks like I am going to be busy ? xx

  4. Hello! This pattern is very pretty but I was wondering, I have 2 balls of Caron cakes and it’s the regular 200g Caron cakes. I was wondering how would I double the size of the pattern of 18 x 21 to 36 x 42 but while not making it longer but making it wider and longer. This may not be possible, but I would really appreciate any feedback!

  5. Love the colors and pattern! Thanks soooo much for sharing this pattern. Moments ago I ordered the Strawberry Trifle Caron Cake! Can’t wait to pick it up from Michaels this afternoon and get started on this blanket 😉

  6. your video tutorial goes to an “autoblog” video not the baby blanket , How do I get the video for the blanket

  7. I am making lapaghans for a local nursing home. Would like them to be at least 26 ,” wide by 36″ long. How long should I make the beginning chain?

  8. On the video, you use a back post DC. Does it matter which you use? Also, are you making the shell in the center of the shell?

    • Yes Cheryl the back post dc matters. It will create an embossed effect on the blanket and yes I am making the shell in the center of the shell.

  9. I have some Mandala Baby tarn, and I’ve been looking for a perfect pattern for a boys blanket. This one is just right! Thank you for posting this pattern!

  10. Mine measures 18x 24, but this is really very small for a baby blanket is it not? Especially considering how expensive it is for the 7.1 ounce ball.

    • Hi Annie I made this blanket for a newborn baby. A security blanket for a baby measures 14″x17″. I think the blanket size is acceptable.
