Lion Brand Pound of Love is the perfect medium for this baby blanket.  This combination of stitches makes a thick reversible fabric.  You can use another yarn, but be sure to use a yarn soft enough it doesn't turn out bullet proof.

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.
When turning your work where should the next stitch begin?
First stitch goes in the last sc of the previous row.
Perfect. Finally I've found a easy beautiful pattern. My great nephew is going to be a sweet swaddled prince.

Congrats on the great nephew.
If I wanted ti make it wider, how many multiples is the pattern worked in?
10 is a good number. Notice the difference in the chains for the two sizes.
So when turning and repeating row 3, do you do a sc in the previous sc and tr in the previous tr or do you do a tr in the previous sc etc?

You tr in the tr and sc in the sc. If you click on the cap pattern you can see the tr line up straight not alternating.
Cant wait to try this one question if I want to make it larger do I have to make the chain a certain number

Use an even number of chains to start.
Can you start it with a chainless single crochet foundation?
I don't see a reason you can't do that.
Looks fun! Your pattern says to repeat row 3 til desired length. Do you actually mean repeat rows 2 and 3? Looks like the rows are separated by a row of single crochet between each. Looking forward to making this!
Yes, rows 2 and 3.
Is this pattern in US or UK terms?
