Peggy Sue's Baby Blanket

I was finally able to transcribe my notes for Peggy Sue's Baby Blanket. If anyone finds a mistake, please let me know. Thank you so much.

Peggy Sue’s Baby Blanket

Materials: sport weight yarn
Size F crochet hook

Row 1: Ch 131, sc in 2nd ch from hook, sc in each ch across (130 sts), ch 3 turn
Row 2: sk 1st sc, dc in next st, dc in skipped st, repeat across, dc in top of turning ch of last row, ch 3, turn
Rows 3-7: repeat row 2, At the end of row 7, ch 2, turn
Row 8: hdc in each st across
Rows 9 - 11: repeat row 8
Repeat rows 2 - 11 nine times
Repeat rows 2 - 7 once more, ch 1, turn
Sc in each st across
End off
Weave in ends.
This could be made with worsted weight yarn and an H hook for a larger blanket. Just repeat rows 2 - 11 as many times as you need to get the length you want.

I am confused about Row 2 and the skipped stitch into which you are supposed to make a double. Can you explain, please?

You skip the first single crochet stitch from from row one, and double crochet into the next single crochet. Then you go back to the stitch you skipped and double crochet into it. You have made an X. Does this help?

how much yarn is needed for this pattern? and could you use baby yarn for it?

I am just getting started on this. Is it normal for it to be curvy instead of laying straight?

Cozy's Corner said...

No it should lay flat. I suspect that your double crochets are looser than your single crochets and that could be the problem. If the "curviness" is not too bad you can steam it out when you are finished. Just don't touch the iron to the yarn. Hold it above until the yarn is damp and then smooth it out and let it dry flat. I hope this helps.
