Have you tried this craft? What did you think? I tried making this with the free pattern I got with my yarn. It was graded as easy! I can crochet advanced, but could not make this pattern. BECAUSE THE DIRECTIONS WERE INCORRECT! Now I find it as intermediate and the directions are TOTALLY DIFFERENT. I will try again and hopefully this time they are correct. Forgive me if I am not optomistic.

This yarn was very hard to work with. Too fuzzy any tips on how to find my next stitch placement?

How many points is the star supposed to be? I'm a beginner at this & i'm getting a little confused by the pattern. I keep ending up with seven points but it doesnt look right. Any help please!

This is absolutely the prettiest thing I've seen for the little ones in some time! I just crocheted another blanket (my own design, seen at my Ravelry.com account) and wish I had found this before hand. Make no mistake, I love the one I just did for my new grand-nephew, however, I think I would have preferred this one. Oh well, at least until the next adorable blanket I see!!
