    Thanks ReniC, I knew it was something else but my brain just wasn't working the other day. LOL

    Baby blanket

    Hi and welcome! I'm pretty sure this has several different names. The one that came to mind though is The Wool Eater: https://sarahlondon.wordpress.com/2009/08/25/wool-eater-instructions/ I hope you come bake and post a photo of your finished blanket.

    Is using press studs on crochet item a good idea?

    I agree with Granny Square that using press brads would be more difficult in changing things out than it is worth. How about brads? They come in all colors and used to come in shapes in the scrapbook section. Would be almost the same as using buttons but no worries about making holes or lining up. Hope that helps.

    Looking for a thin twisted cord

    I'm sorry. I forgot you did say you saw a tutorial somewhere.

    Looking for a thin twisted cord

    Granny Square, I made a couple of them a year or two ago. Fairly easy and nice looking. Flia, where did you see it? Is there a picture you can link to? Romanian cord is worked in the round which is why I thought it might be the one.

    baby afghan pattern

    How about this one? https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/bubbles-baby-blanket Instead of a single and half double, it is sc and dc in the same stitch Maybe it will work for you or if not, just change the double to a half double.

    Floral Crocheted Afghan

    Hi! Did you find that on Pinterest? That is the only place I have found it so far and the photo was uploaded by the user making it harder to locate. Based on the photo it looks similar to these photos: https://www.leisurearts.com/catalog/product/view/id/5035/ https://www.etsy.com/listing/261625306/afghan-crochet-pattern-leaflet-floral?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=floral mile a minute afghan pattern&ref=sr_gallery-1-2 Which means it might also be made by Tammy Kreimeyer. It looks like some kind of mile-a-minute and she does a lot of those. Hopefully someone can pinpoint it for you.

    Trying to locate Afghan pattern*

    I'm almost positive that is a mile-a-minute. I feel like I had an Annie's catalog years ago with it in there. Of course I don't have that old catalog anymore but maybe the MAM idea will give you more places to look. Although I didn't see it on a quick look. Good Luck!
