    So I really clicked on the cool breeze baby ripple afghan and came here. Think maybe the link is broken 🙁

    I’ve been looking for a swirl pattern to make a tree skirt. I’m going to try this one. Thanks for sharing.

    I am still working on the Peppermint Throw. I’m always afraid that the tutorial will come down so I check on it to make sure it’s still there. I have about 25 motifs made now. I started it in the fall before my surgery and have been slow to get going again because of the meds I now have to take and the work I do everyday, I don’t have much time. I love the crochet crowd Mikey and love reading the posts and all the information you put out there. Thank you so much.

    I can’t read patterns and don’t have the time before Christmas to learn. I want to make the cushion to go with the afghan. I am praying this will work. It’s for my 2 year old grandson so it doesn’t have to be too big a cushion. I am going to make 2 bigger motifs and sew them together and stuff them. Wish me luck because I need it! 🙂

    There is no reason a baby blanket cannot be lined. You can achieve some amazing designs using open spaces with the color of the lining coming through to complete the look. Some open type doilies and table runners are beautiful this way. For this one, I would want to line it anyway, but you could also use thread to sew the chains, great and small to the back of the second color. It would not show up on the front and would totally seal the chains so even little toes could not find a hole to stick in.

    Could you use an intarsia method to make a larger blanket? So each spiral of the block would be on a different bobbin? That would negate the need for the chains on the back of the block. Although it would make the beginning of the block somewhat complicated. Maybe switch to intarsia after round 4 or 5?
