    I would love to see you work this up in a larger size as for a photo prop to put a baby on.

    Candice, I really like your pattern but there is an error in the 4th row. You have only used 22 of the 26 stitches. I filled it in by doing an extended dc, then 4 trcr, 1 extended dc then back to the 2 dc in the next 5 stitches. If you don’t want to do the extended dc, can replace them with triple crochet. The extended double crochet gives a smoother line in the edge.
