I originally wrote this very easy pattern in a doll blanket size, with many extra photos to show how to crochet parts of the pattern. To view those photos, see: http://crochet.about.com/library/ndollblanket.htm ... At that page, you can learn how to skip a stitch, how to crochet in a chain space and step-by-step how to make a v-stitch, all made easy to learn with my close-up photos of the stitches.
