Noah's Blanket Pattern

Ok here is the pattern I used to create Noah's blanket. All I know about the creator of this pattern is they went by fourleafcl1064 on AOL Hometown. Unfortunately those sites have all been deleted , so I cannot find anymore info about this person. Just know that this is not my own pattern and if I do one day find the person who created this, I will of course give credit. Thank you. You can see more pics of this blanket in the post right before this one.

Hi, I made this blanket for a friend and it turned out beautiful! The only thing is that the right and left side were tighter than the top and bottom. When you finish row 3 and repeat do you Ch 3, turn and 3dc in that same ch-sp? Maybe that's where I went wrong. What should I have done differently?

I hope this makes sense. Any advice would be so appreciated! Thank you for sharing such a great pattern :)

P.S. I'm new to crocheting so maybe I made a rookie mistake :-/

1i don't know how much help i will be, but I will try. I have been crocheting (2nd) time for about 3 yrs. Came back after 20 yrs of doing other things. Started with face & dish clothes, then market bags, then variations of scarves. Now I need to make a baby blanket for my nephew and his wife! We are so excited!

Anyway, I think I did this with the face clothes. I found I did better, and it look nicer, IF when I chained (1 or whatever the pattern calls for) I made the first stitch immediately closest to the turning chain, its almost under your hook. The i ended on the very last stitch. it seems to work fo rme better that wey. I don't know if that helps any Or just try a small wash cloth size say start with a chain of 31, and see how it looks. that should give you an idea. Sorry this was so wordy!
