The pattern directions instruct you to crochet into the ch-1 spaces. If you have difficulty finding these—sometimes they seem to vanish—carefully poke your finger at the row of stitches from back to front. Your hands will feel the gap even if your eyes don't spot it at first. Ch , Row 1: Place a stitch marker in the first ch from your hook. Sc in 3rd ch from hook.
Row 2: [sc in the next ch-1 sp, ch 1. At the end of the row, work a sc st into the st where you placed the marker; you can remove the marker before working the stitch. Rows 3 and Up: The rest of the rows are all exactly the same as row 2, with one minor difference: at the end of the row, work your last sc st into the turning chain of the previous row. Rep this row until the baby blanket reaches your desired length.
Note: When you need to change to a new ball of yarn, use the same technique as you would for changing colors. When the baby blanket is the length that you want, cut the yarn, leaving at least six inches of extra yarn. Thread the tapestry needle with the yarn end and use the needle to weave the loose end of the yarn into the blanket.
Repeat with any other loose ends you may have hanging from the blanket which occur when you switch from one ball of yarn to the next.

Project Linus has a non-smoking policy for chapter coordinators. Coordinators must be non-smokers and live and store blankets in a smoke free environment. Project Linus blankets must be of excellent quality and free from contaminants.
Special care should be taken to ensure that blankets are free of smoky smells or any chemicals which could cause problems for a child. Ensure that blankets are free of pet or animal hair. Hospitals will not accept these blankets, and they will most likely be discarded. Recent studies show that laundering these blankets does not remove contamination, and in some cases can even make it worse.
Always check blankets carefully for pins, and remove any embellishments such as buttons that could be swallowed. Notify me of follow-up comments by email. Notify me of new posts by email.
