was great to get the digital version of this favourite. I've made many baby gifts of this blanket. I made the whole set for my oldest son now 27, to come home from the hospital. The blanket is quick to crochet and looks nice in other colours as well.

So glad to see this pattern! My uncle’s mother crocheted this blanket for my firstborn, nearly 14 years ago. It was the last thing she ever made and our favorite blanket. I’ve been crocheting for nearly 20 years and have been wanting to make it for friends, and for her great-grandchildren who were born in the last year or two (I’m too selfish to pass on the actual blanket). Just bought it. YAY!! Can't wait for my yarn to arrive.

I really love the pattern for the afghan. I have not yet made the jacket and booties as I currently do not know of anyone having a baby. But it will be my first choice when I do. I recommend this to all my friends and family.

I had "shared" a picture of a WIP for this afghan, and was literally slammed with requests for the pattern! So, I sent them your way!
I am enlarging mine and using worsted weight yarn to be use for an adult.
The pattern is easy to follow, but then again I have been crocheting for years. The only problem I had was with how small the print was on the pattern. BTW, I keep sending people over here from The Crochet Crowd on facebook.

I had this pattern booklet MANY years ago and misplaced it. I can't count the number of sweaters & booties I hae made using this pattern... I have gotten back into crochet again and remembered just how easy BUT pretty every item in this booklet works up, so I was thrilled when I was able to download the booklet to use once again. An oldie, but a goodie!!

I made this for my kids in 1973 and lost the
copy. I am so glad to find it again, I have been looking for it for years. Now I can make it for my grandchildren.

Received this pattern from a friend years ago. It was getting rather tattered from use. I was glad to find the pattern was still available! Thank-You Leisure Arts!!

I first did this set almost 40 years ago. I made so many of these as gifts for family and friends. I had kept my pattern, but alas, when we moved I had misplaced it. I was so happy to be able to find it online. I just finished up one set as a shower gift and now plan to make more up just to have on hand. Beautiful! I plan to purchase more patterns from the older years. Leisure Arts patterns are fantastic.
