Update 12/8/15:
We’ve been asked if there will ever be a document version of this pattern. At this time, the formatting on the pattern is quite extensive and in order to do it right, we’d need to take more time than we actually have right now to put it all together. I have however, compiled a list of the clues and linked to the original blog posts below, should you want to access the directions easily on the Jimmy Beans Wool blog. Here they are by Week, and Knit and Crochet directions are both included for the block in each clue:

-Week 1/Clue 1
-Week 2/Clue 2
-Week 3/Clue 3
-Week 4/Clue 4
-Week 5/Clue 5
-Week 6/Clue 6
-Week 7 - Finishing

~The blanket takes 6 skeins of Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Worsted.

~Needle sizes: US 7/4.5mm needle for the knitted squares and US H-8 for the crochet squares.

~Each square will measure 10” x 10” and the resulting blanket will have 12 squares for a final size of 30” x 40” (crib size.) If you plan to add a border or make it larger, keep in mind that you will need more yarn.
