I am 42. I am married to the love of my life. Together we have two beautiful young adults who bring me joy everyday. Secretly, I'm counting the years till grandbabies start coming; they just need to find their forever loves first. We have lived in Florida for 3 years (transplanted from WI) and we finally love it. I graduated with my AA in Business Foundations from UoPhoenix in February 2014! Yay, me!

Faeries- Sampler Baby Afghan Pattern

I finally found my Faeries pattern. I made this blanket 4 years ago, wrote the pattern and subsequently lost it until I recently unpacked a box after our move to Florida. I'm so excited to be able to present it to you. I haven't worked through the pattern since I designed it, so I hope that everything is correct. If not, let me know.

It looks so cute! I will be trying this real soon. I will let you know how things work out :)

SHANA said...

Haha, I pinned your pattern because I love it and have already had emails that something like close to 40 others have pinned it. It is gorgeous.

Biz said...

Criossa-Can't wait to see pics!! :-)
Shana-That's exciting! Lol. Thanks for letting me know! I'm going to have to look at this Pinterest thing someday.

I love it! Will put it in my file for just that "special" little one. I don't/won't use Caron yarns. I find that it separates easily and makes crocheting "not fun." LOL! I am partial to "I Love This Yarn" from Hobby Lobby, but use "Red Heart Super Saver" just because it is not so spendy, and I can get it almost anywhere.
Keep up the good patterns. You are an inspiration to many, including me!

Biz said...

Hey Jimmie! I agree...Caron SS borders on evil for a crochet hook! LOL I just discovered 'I Love This Yarn' when I moved to Florida. Before that I didn't live close enough to a Hobby Lobby. But, it has quickly become my favorite go to acrylic. It works up equally well in a blanket, a toy, apparel, you name it...
Thanks again for your sweet comments. :-)

Such a lovely baby afghan! Thank you for the pattern...

Jackie said...

This is too cute! Can't wait to try it. Thanks!

Jackie said...

Will you check row 11 and see if the final count of stitches and repeats are correct? There's a real possibility that I screwed up, but my stitch count was correct after rows 9 and 10. I love this pattern! Thanks

Blue Llama said...

HI, I love your pattern - it is so pretty!! I am trying to open the link, but it is blank. Is there another way to get your pattern?
Thanks!

Biz said...

Hi Blue Llama!
Email me and I will send you a .pdf copy!

Sandy said...

I would love this pattern too, but can't seem to get it to download from Scribd... can you possibly send it to me? Thank you :)

Hi All!

If you need a copy of the pattern emailed to you, please email me @
bizzycrochet (at) hotmail (dot) com. It is easier for me to just hit "reply" than to have to write down email addresses and try to remember to send emails out. Cuz, I can guarantee, I will forget someone without meaning to!

Thanks so much! :)

When the instructions say to: "dc in 4dc", does that mean to dc in each of the next 4dc stitches?

Biz said...

Yes it does

Ln Patton said...

Oh thank you so much for posting this and giving us the pattern;-) I made one similiar to this over 20 years ago; and can not find the pattern;( And it is so fun to make! We can use up most of our yarn scraps with this blanket and it keeps my interest;-) Thank you, thank you, thank you;-)

So, I am doing this pattern and if I follow what states, when I get to row 23, I don't know what I am doing wrong, but I am only getting 12 popcorn per row, which would make the count. 48, somewhere I am off by 4. Can you help me and see if this is something I am missing?

Lona Lou said...

I love this pattern. I am about to begin my third. The first one ended up enlarged to adult size for ME! The next was true to pattern and made for a baby. This one will be for a toddler. I can't wait to get the yarn together and get started. Thanks for sharing! This is my go to baby blanket: so pretty and so much fun!

Dear Miz Biz: Regarding your revisions of the Faerie Baby Blanket, I have 5 words: "You're awesome! I luuuurrve yeeew!" I'd started this and it just didn't look right, plus, I actually got stuck on about row 10 or 11. I decided to just look and see if anyone had posted questions about the same issues I was having and *poof*! You'd already fixed the problem! I haven't actually gotten back to my work yet, but I have every confidence your revisions will solve everything. Thank you so much for taking the time to publish them. I love this pattern and all your other designs, too! Thanks again!

Oops, spoke too soon. I've downloaded the revision and am still having trouble with the final counts of stitches coming out right on several rows. HELP! PLEASE! I need to move on with this thing as it's a gift for a baby who's already here. As ersheffey said a few comments ago, I'm having trouble with Row 23. I made sure I had 252 scs at the end of Row 22 as it called for. That's 63 scs on each of he 4 sides. The math just doesn't add up. If you do 4 scs and Popcorn 13 times, that's 65, plus the last 4 scs the pattern calls for before the corner, makes a total of 69 sts needed to follow the pattern. Am I missing something?

Biz said...

Ok. I screwed up again. I just say down and recounted on the afghan I made for the pattern revisions. I came up with 66 total stitches per side with 12 bobbles. I don't know how I missed marking that down. I am truly sorry for all the confusion.

Jess said...

Is anyone having trouble with Row 20? Row 20: w/color A, join w/dc in any ch2 corner, (dc, ch2, 2dc) in sm sp, ch2, sk 2hdc, dc in 2hdc, *[ch1, sk hdc, dc in 2hdc] 17 times, ch1, (2dc, ch2, 2dc) in corner *, repeat * to * 3 times, repeat [-] once, sl st to 1st dc. (160dc, 76 ch1 sp) Cut Color A.. Is the * in the wrong place because if i follow that I am missing 2 dc's

What a gorgeous pattern!.. I see it just as beautiful if done as a shawl too, you think?!.. all those beautiful patterns and colors!

mrick said...

Hi there, I really want to make this blanket....it's soooo cute! But I'm not an experienced crocheter so I wanted to ask if the revisions have been completed?

mrick said...

Hi there, I really want to make this blanket, it's sooo cute! But first I wanted to find out if all the revisions have been published?

I ran across your blog and fell in love with this pattern. Once I clicked your Ravrly link I realized it is already in my que. ha-ha. I just bumped it up. Thanks for the great pattern.

Sweet P said...

I love this pattern so I've just been on your site and download some others. I can't wait to get started. Thank you clever lady :)

Bobbie said...

Just found your blog. This is a gorgeous blanket. You do lovely work. I'm going to have to try this pattern. Your colors are just perfect. I am now a follower and hope to see lots more of your crocheting.
Thanks for sharing your beautiful pattern ~ I truly appreciate it.
Bobbie :)

I absolutely LOVE this blanket. I am in the middle (almost) of making my third one. I keep forgetting to tell you that on row 23, there are only 12 popcorn stitches, not 13. I have tried everything in power to figure out if I am doing something wrong. If I am please let me know. Thanks
Kim Brand

Biz said...

Hi Kim! How awesome! Thanks for using my pattern! You probably aren't doing it wrong. I'm glad you have just modified it to work for you. I'm sorry about that!

Linda said...

This is so beautiful! I gathered all the yarn and was so excited about starting this blanket. Everything was fine till row 8. I could not get the count to come out correct. I unraveled at least a dozen times, then finally started from the beginning. I could not get the count correct on every row. But I just worked it out and made sure I had the same number of stitches on each side. I am now on row 26 and the count is not correct. I will start from the beginning again. This is a donation blanket and I am determined to finish it. Just printed the revisions, so maybe this will help. I have been crocheting over 50 years and this project has me stumped. Thanks for such a beautiful pattern. Linda
