I have looked everywhere for a pattern for something like this. I will be making one for a friend who is expecting and one for my daughter who is also expecting. Thank you for a great pattern.
 
OH! I am so excited to find out you designed this pattern!!! I can't wait to make them for my charity! Such a pretty stitch! Thank You so much!!!
 
This is great. I think I'll make two as sleeping bags for my daughter's 18 inch dolls... she's always looking for new accessories for them and I've found that many baby patterns are the perfect size for them. Thanks!
 
This looks like a wonderful pattern to make. I'm sure I will enjoy making it. Now...off to find some yarn in my stash!
 
Great pattern! My supervisor is expecting and this will make a GREAT gift. Thank you for sharing.
 
Thank you so much for posting this! I looked everywhere for a pattern for one of these but could only find them for sale. I finally bought one and it didn't crochet up anything like it should have. So I had to work it out myself. I wish I had seen this sooner, lol. I love your patterns, so I will use this one for my other friends that are expecting :)
 
Thank you for posting your pattern. I have been wanting to crochet one rather than knit one. I haven't found a pattern and was thinking I could work something up. You saved me so much work. Thank you again, this is soooo cute! Mary
 
Ditto, Ditto, Ditto, thanks for the pattern..
 
Thank you for sharing the pattern. Frustrating to see it on search, and many times it is another search. I do appreciate it.
 
I'm posting a link to this (and your picture, credited) over at crochet every day. I love it! The post will be up tomorrow! Thanks Suz!
