I love this Road Trip Baby Blanket! It is well written and the clusters look like half pom poms. So sweet! I like that it is worked in bulky yarn to make it go quickly and this pattern is well written and easy to understand. Not only can this be used for babies, but for us older people too. This will make for a nice lap blanket! I'm going to go find some nice bulky yarn and make a few of these. Looking forward to making this one! Thank you so much for sharing this free crochet pattern.

Made one - loved it - it's not perfect as I'm a semi beginner. It went fast and is soooo cute. Great directions. Thanks.

Am wondering if I want to make this larger how do I calculate the number of stitches for the starter chain?

This is not easy. It states when making the cluster to insert hook in indicated stitch... what is that?

In row 3 it states "Ch 1, turn, sc in next 8 sts, 4-dc Cl in next st, [sc in next 7 sts, 4-dc Cl in next st] 4 times, sc in next 8 sts" That would mean the indicated stitch is the 9th stitch for the first one and the 8th one from that point on. Really much easier than it sounds. Hope this helps you as this is a really pretty blanket.
