I do not like how you ask for crochet baby patterns and it does NOT let you see a pattern upon request... Not sure what is going on, but I really wanted to see patterns, not text about patterns. Advice

click on the name of the blanket on this page which takes you to another page and you have to click one more time there where it says click here for pattern.
