I love this pattern! I am at the end of row 11 and the instructions say to continue as established. But what does that mean? Continue the pattern using what established row/row(s)? I don't want to continue and mess up the work I have done! Thanks!

Hi heidispring, This is a Bernat pattern so I would recommend contacting Yarnspirations support for advice straight from the source. I can offer my advice and observations, but since we are not the creators of this pattern, I can't say for certainty that this is what they meant. It seems to me as though there's an establish pattern with some increases as you progress from row to row. Take a look at your pattern and compare the directions for the rounds and see how you can continue while keeping your increases in mind. I hope that helps! Julia, editor for AllFreeCrochet

I am done with the 11th row, and the rest of the instructions say to "continue as established...until work from center to outer point measures approx 20 ins ending with 2 rnds A. Fasten off". So do I just continue as the 11th round instructs or is it the last three rows? So confused. This should be more clear for people. Thanks! Loving the blanket so far!

You must be my lucky star. The little one will be a super star rocking this adorable blanket. Bernat Pipsqueak yarns are so very soft yet very durable. Its a heavy-weight yarn and the blanket should last for many years through several children if taken care of properly. Would love this in bright yellow.

Looking forward to starting this blanket for a colleague who is due in the Autumn. Looked through lots of patterns but this is the one that stood out for me and don't have to change the colours, this is perfect

I like to see these unique patterns. The first time I saw I star blanket I wanted to make one but got side tracked with another project. Looking for something new and I'm trying this. The word intermediate is a little frightning. I hope if I use a single color it won't be too difficult.

Love this Star Blanket. I have saved a lot of star shaped baby blanket like this and hexagonal blanket but this is the first time I'm seeing this striped blue star blanket for a baby. I will definitely place this in the queue. You can also use a different color or colors for this pattern. Perfect as christening gift or for personal use.

Have you tried this craft? What did you think? I tried making this with the free pattern I got with my yarn. It was graded as easy! I can crochet advanced, but could not make this pattern. BECAUSE THE DIRECTIONS WERE INCORRECT! Now I find it as intermediate and the directions are TOTALLY DIFFERENT. I will try again and hopefully this time they are correct. Forgive me if I am not optomistic.

This yarn was very hard to work with. Too fuzzy any tips on how to find my next stitch placement?

OOhh, I know how that is. I am pretty experienced and even I have trouble finding where my stitch goes. Also forget about if you make a mistake and have to pull out your last few stitches. Try not to do that. It may tangle and snarl. Any kind of boucle type yarn is very nice in hand but can be difficult for you if you need to rip out a row or a few stitches. It's a neat idea, though.

How many points is the star supposed to be? I'm a beginner at this & i'm getting a little confused by the pattern. I keep ending up with seven points but it doesnt look right. Any help please!

This is absolutely the prettiest thing I've seen for the little ones in some time! I just crocheted another blanket (my own design, seen at my Ravelry.com account) and wish I had found this before hand. Make no mistake, I love the one I just did for my new grand-nephew, however, I think I would have preferred this one. Oh well, at least until the next adorable blanket I see!!
