    Oh this is so beautiful !!!!!! I can’t wait to start this.
    Thank You for sharing your talent with others.

    Very pretty.

  3. Linda Augustine says:

    I need to make this for a little older baby than newborn. Please add stitch count for a little larger if you can. Thanks.

    1. elvanren says:

      Hi Linda, If you use double knit wool and a 4mm hook it should fit a 0-3month old. Are you wanting for older than 3months?

  4. Susan Thibodeaux says:

    Do I continue R3 only to get to R18 or do I repeat R2 and R3 to get to R18? Nothing is said about back Loops only in R3

    1. elvanren says:

      Hi Susan, apologies for the confusion. You repeat Row 3 only to get to row 18 and you only work in back loops all the way to row 18. Hope this clears things up.

      1. Susan Thibodeaux says:

        Thanks so much. It is truly beautiful

  5. Maureen says:

    Row 3 calls for 1 dc dec over the first 2dc and at the end 1 dc dec over the last 2dc. you then repeat that row through row 18. However, you are then decreasing in every row and that would make it more of a triangle than a rectangle I think. Please help. Am I reading this wrong?

    1. elvanren says:

      Hi Maureen, you are reading it correctly. You increase 2 on every point so it cancels each other.
