The Crochet Galaxy Swirl Baby Blanket looks complicated but the video breaks it down to be easy to do without the fuss.
During the making of a sample for the tutorial, I realized that if you forget the idea that it's a swirl and look at it like ripples of circles, the pattern is so easy to follow.
Using visual cues of the 2 dc in 1 stitch gives you the knowledge without having to be crazy with counting. The project tells you what to do. The key to this is to mark the first stitch of each round so you know where you are. It will help you count your rounds.
This is using the brand new Bernat Baby Blanket Sparkle yarn. This yarn is hard to photograph and does video work to really show you the sparkle it does. It's subtle and in person, you will see it shimmer. You will not feel a difference to the touch with the sparkle filament that is added to it.

As seen in the tutorial to break down this pattern so you don't have to read the pattern as much and watch for the changes, you can download or print a copy of my notes.
