I would love to make this pattern, but I can't find the pattern on Kristi's site. I clicked on the "Click here for pattern button," and that didn't work. I inputted the address found on May 26, 2015 message, and that just took me to the same place. Too much trouble when other patterns are available. Too bad.

I too would LOVE this pattern, I have just spoken to my son who I gave for adoption, and he is so impressive, I want to make THIS blanket for him, please add the link. THANK YOU!!

It is 2015 and the link to the pattern is not working. I would love to have it.

No pattern can not make thisblanket

The pattern was not available via the link. Message just said it was not there. Another location?

The pattern link does not work! Searching the net does not help. Pattern is only for sale at USD 3.99 at No free pattern.

I get a 404 error when i click the link. I'd like to make this so would it be possible to please get the link fixed? Thank you!

There is a 404 (not found) error when clicking the link for this pattern. Please fix this!

Clicking on download creates a 404 (not found) error. This blanket is no longer available. Please either remove it from the list or fix the link!

I am unable to view this pattern. The link above goes to a page that says "Server not found".

I have made this blanket beofre - can't remember how much yarn was used. Someone said they used 4-#'ers for the adult size. How much yarn for the baby blanket?

I made this blanket before...or at least one similar. It was a small twin size or a large throw, and I used 4 - Caron one pounds, and that was with NO BORDER! This is an awesome and simple blanket but it is a yarn sucker...LOL and very warm :)

what is the final size. I like this pattern and would like to make one about 45x60. Any suggestions?

I also am wondering how much yarn you need, as I did not see that information in the instructions. Thanks so much!

This is a simple yet beautiful blanket. I was wondering how many skeins of yarn it takes to make this. I didn't see it in the instructions. Thank you!

Like this very much and will make it soon. Thank you
