Comments:
I, Like you, enjoy crocheting most of all. This looks like the perfect blanket for my first grandbaby. Thanks for a beautiful pattern. Mary
 
This is cool!
 
What a great pattern! I'm on my fourth one. Perfect to work on while watching television! Thanks for this awesome pattern!
 
Pleases me to no end that you found the pattern and are enjoying it.
 
Sc in next stitch tr in next stitch. Do that mean triple crochet in next stitch?
 
Yes it does mean treble crochet.
 
@Suzetta thank you!
 
Does the ch 2 at beginning of row count as a stitch, so do I do my last stitch of the row in the ch 2 from previous row?

 
The ch 2 does not count as the first stitch.
 
On row 1 you specify working in the back bump only. Does that follow through the entire work or only for the first row?
 
Only the first row.
