Be advised that the above link takes you to the designers page rather than the pattern directly. Click on the photo of the blanket and that opens a .pdf to either save or print off. I actually prefer .pdf format because its much easier for me to pull up on my tablet if I want to save paper, or print out if I want to pass the pattern along.

I do not know what the Red Heart Baby Teri yarn is. If i knew what it is (was) I could most likely decide on an appropriate substitute for it. Could I use the Red Heart Soft instead? I am assuming it is a yarn that has a certain amount of loft to it, while still being a number three yarn? It looks heavenly in all white!

I love the look of this Cuddle Soft Baby Blanket. I had to download the pattern to see the picture and the pattern. No Bugs with the download, thankfully! With a simple shell stitch this one should work up quickly and be a nice gift to give for a baby shower. I'm thinking of buying Lion brand Ice Cream Glacee Helado for this. It's a nice soft Light #3 yarn that I'm using now for a baby blanket and I love this color. This is my next project! Thank you so much for sharing this free crochet pattern.

I would like to be able to view the pattern for this blanket before deciding whether I would make it. When I click the link to get the pattern, it immediately tries to save a pdf to my laptop without taking me to the designers site or even asking me if I want a file to download to my computer.

Hi Hippie Chick, I understand your hesitation - I've updated the pattern with a link to the designer's blog. Hope that helps! Julia, editor for AllFreeCrochet

Red Heart discontinued Baby Teri years ago, so in researching it, I found that it was worsted weight, not fine weight, as it states on this page. I think I'd substitute Plush Baby yarn. What have you substituted for this pattern? I'd love to make this - it looks so pretty! I meant to ask what YARN have you substituted for this. Thanks! :)
