Hi gopher5860 3226344, below the pattern title you'll see social media icons and a save button. To the right, click the blue "more" button, and then you will see the print button appear. I hope this helps! - Laura, editor of AllFreeCrochet

How adorable! This Candy Swirls Baby Blanket is soooo adaptable! Any colors for the centers will work..could be pastels...could be bold and bright. That is the amazing thing about hand crafting an item like this is we can tailor it to those we're giving it to.This one will travel too as the pieces before setting would be perfect hand size!

Please send me the diagram referenced on "page 2" there is no page 2

Hi sbdspot, I'm so sorry, but it looks like the original Yarnspirations pattern that we added this from is no longer available, so I'm unable to get you the diagram referenced. I'll be removing that mention from the pattern text. To me, though, it looks like you just arrange the motifs in a grid and sew them together to form the pictured blanket. Thanks - and sorry about that! Julia, AFC editor

Well even if the yarn is no longer being sold due to recall, I don't care about that. There are so very many baby yarn ice cream color shades out there, you are sure to find an appropriate replacement. I would much rather take the pattern as inspiration and go from there. To me, that is the best part of creating! CUTE baby blanket made from (portable) motifs!


Hi fromkathyyoung, The photo should be appearing now. :) Julia, AllFreeCrochet editor

I can see by the directions that this us a very easy pattern to follow. And it certainly doesn't take much yarn. But it would be very nice if there was a picture of the finished product. No one wants to fly blind, so to say. It also helps to have a picture to reference.

This pattern is one of the ones that lost its image in the transfer to the new template. I wouldnt complain as I have run across several of these already except that it does not have a link to an outside blog where the pattern and a picture can be seen. The pattern is shown in full on here. The others contained a link to get the pattern elsewhere.

Please note that Bernat Tizzy is under a voluntary recall by the manufacturer because of a safety hazard. This product is no longer available. If you still have any of this yarn it is illegal to make any items with a product that has been recalled because of safety concerns. Bernat was offering refunds to people who still had any of this yarn but I do not know if that offer is still valid. Please check the following link for recall details http//

This is so dainly. Thanks for having the pattern right in front. Makes you inspired to start the project unlike those with patterns that you have to click the link. I want to make this as a gift or for sale.

I love 'circles in squares' patterns, and the colors in this particular pattern are so beautiful for a spring or an Easter birth/pastel nursery. My only issue with this pattern is how the motifs begin. When it comes to blankets or afghans or really anything that could be for a baby with tiny fingers and toes, I prefer to start with a magic circle. It DOES take a few tries to get right and can be a bit cumbersome at first, but it is WELL worth the effort. It closes tightly and stays closed, and in my opinion makes for a more professional finish.

Clevergirlash, I agree with you 100%, I love to use the magic circle whenever I can as well, makes your items look nicely finished, especially if you are selling or giving your items as gifts. I don't want my recipients to be disappointed with the way their item looks!

Pattern is here in full:

This blanket pattern is not named "Candy Swirls Baby Blanket" on the Bernat site. You can find this pattern under "Giggles & Tizzy - Fuzzy Spots Blanket". Enjoy!

I don't see a page 2????

Where is page 2?

Where is page 2 that shows how to assemble the Candy Swirls blanket?

I had to go to the Bernat website, click on free patterns, then click on crochet, then baby, then scroll down to the Candy Swirls Baby Blanket and get the PDF in English to get the 2nd page.. hope this helps!
