I have one more baby blanket to make. This one is quite a bit late, but it'll come. I wanted to try something new, like always. I chose a cute star-shaped baby blanket pattern and started it the other evening. Then I ran into a road block where I was doing something wrong and I can't figure it out. Again, as usual!
Let me introduce the pattern: It is called "Pipsqueak Star Blanket" from Bernat and it is crochet.

Isn't it adorable? I thought it looked easy and it is marked as a 2 out of 4 skill level.
I am going to use Loops & Threads Country Loom (100% Acrylic) in a light blue (Ocean Tide) and a brown/blue mix (Landscape), in addition to Bernat Soft Boucle (97% Acrylic, 3% Polyester) in a natural color.
My issue was with Round 3, in which I am left with a gap before I connect to end the round. I redid it several times and still a gap.
My next attempt with regular yarn, still yielded a small gap. I have 6 points this time, at least. I have put a call in with my sister and she left me a message that the pattern was working out fine for her. Of course it is!
