    I have two questions about the Little Boy Blue Baby Blanket. #1 – Are all bobbles supposed to be on the same side? #2 – Is there a “right” side for this blanket and is it the side the bobbles are on? Also, I noticed that I am crocheting the bobbles and they are on the opposite side that I am crocheting….thanks for your help…your blanket is gorgeous!

    I noticed in the hug and kisses all around pattern you use a popcorn stitch rather than a 5dctog stitch. I seem to have trouble keeping my bobble stitch sticking out on the correct side of the work, they seem to move back and forth. Would using the popcorn stitch for this pattern give the same effect as the bobble stitch? Thanks!

    First of all love this pattern. I’ m working on the border and the single crochet in the end of each row just doesn’t seem or look right. Is this correct? If I’m following the exact pattern I would have 81 single crochets on one side. When I do that they look too far space out. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you so much!!!

    Looks beautiful! I plan to make this but want it bigger. Any advice on how to make it bigger, say 48×60, would be appreciated. TIA.

      Hi Jeanne; LOVE The pattern so far. One question as I have not done the bobble stitches in a while.. do I close the 5dctogether with a chain 1 or not? Thanks!!

    Happy New Year’s JeAnne & Mikey,
    I found this pattern by purely coincidence, and am in love with this, so I have a Grandson coming in May and this would be perfect, and the colors to! So I’m a visual person to can I follow your girls chevron video tutorial and still make the little boy blanket w/o the chevrons? And I never make a child like size for the keepsake will it be ok if I make it larger and still be able to make and follow pattern? ,
    THANK you ♡

    Is the 2nd cross of the 1st x st supposed to be in the turning chain? My row is ending with my x in the last chain, not leaving it open for another dc. If I use the turning chain at the beginning of row 3, I think my count should come out correctly. My total starting chain is 202. Thank you!

    I have a problem I’m only able to crochet by watching a video so I referred to the chevron hugs and kisses video to make this blanket the only thing I didn’t do Is the chevron the peaks and valleys but I’m on my bobble row and on the ends of the blanket they are not lining up with the previous row ?? I’m so worried it would kill me to start over what did I do wrong ???

    Hi Jeanne !
    I just started the pattern and I’m wondering on Row 3 (the X-Stitches) why do we end the row with 2 dc and not an X ?

    Would love to make this bigger as a Throw. Any suggestions on how many chains to start with to make it big enough?

      Chain multiples of 6 until you have the length you like, then chain 4 more and you’ll be good to go!

    I would like to make this a little bigger. Could you please give a little more info on your instructions, “6 + 4”? Thank you so much!

      You could easily make this scarf length using the multiples of 6 + 4. Use the tutorial from the Hugs & Kisses blanket for any stitches you need help with as it is basically the same blanket without the chevron.

    Love this pattern. How do I increase the size of this blanket because I’m using s lighter yarn. I’m a beginner so somethings I don’t understand “6 +4” to increase???

    Gorgeous, Jeanne! Thanks for the pattern! If I make this in two colors, where would you start the new color? Would love to hear your thoughts. TIA!

      Maybe change every 5 rows? Or just the bobble rows? So many options! That is why I love self-striping yarn. 🙂
