  6. If I wanted to make it a little smaller, what is the stitch count for the pattern (multiples of) so that I could decrease it slightly?

    1. Leah,
      I think it is mutiples of 14, but I'm not at home right now to look at the pattern, so I'm not sure. I can let you know next week. I could't answer by email, since I don't have your email address, so I will post back here next week.
      Thanks so much for stopping by.

  7. We do not have that particular yarn in our area. I found a bulky cotton baby yarn, but it seems too thick of a stitch, Is the yarn you use, a finer yarn ? What could I replace it with? Thanks, I love the look of your blanket and really want to make one.

    1. It is considered a medium weight yarn, not a fine yarn. If your yarn is numbered in your area, it would be maybe a 3 or a 4. Otherwise I would just use a soft cotton medium weight yarn. I don't know where your are so it is hard to be more specific. If you let me know where you are I might be able to help find a yarn.
      Thanks so much for stopping by and I'm so happy that you like the blanket pattern. Have fun.

  8. I am from York, PA. I checked the craft stores in this area and the only cotton baby yarn I could find was the Lion Brand, which is a 5. That explains why it looks so big. They didn't have the black, either. Now that its getting cooler out, I am ready to start another project especially since there are several babies due this year, Love your work. Thanks for getting back to me.

    1. We have family friends who are from York. They moved to Del Ray Be each in Florida 2 years ago. My suggestion is that you could buy the yarn online from Hobby Lobby. They would probably have the yarn or something similar, that is where I bought the yarn. I don't use the baby weight yarn because it is so thin it takes a lot longer, but it is a large baby blanket so it would probe ably work out OK.
      Good luck.

    1. Lakiesha,
      I'm sorry it took so long for me to answer. I have recently moved and I am slowly working on the blog again. I can't answer you by email, because you are a no comment blogger which doesn't send you email address.

      If you send me a message with an attachment I can try to help. Are the eyelets coming out in a diamond shaped pattern? I can try doing a swatch again, also to see what is going on, but it would be easier if I can see a picture of what you are doing. My direct email is debrabolocofsky@gmail.com, which may be better for going back and forth on the pattern.
      Thanks.
