I'd like some help with passing the Quality Assessment Process. Will you please give feedback on my Hub Crotchet baby blanket. What can I do to improve? Thanks!
Cute blanket Love the border. You should see the monster I'm working on at the moment. I think it will take me till the end of the year.
First of all, your title should be in title case: Crochet Baby Blanket
Then you need a short introduction to the pattern. Why you made it, who it was for... you get the idea, just add that personal touch. The introduction should be right at the beginning before the photos.
Try to take some better photos of the blanket. They are a bit blurry. Perhaps someone you know has a better camera/phone?
Patterns tend to be a little short. I'm not sure what you can do to make the hub longer. Maybe you have a second baby blanket pattern you could add?
Remove the Amazon capsule. You should only use a capsule if you mention the specific product. You could write a little about your favourite crochet hooks for when you make blankies, and then add the relevant capsule.
Anywhere that you have used the work crochet needs to be changed. The correct spelling is crochet. It needs to be changed in the title first. I noticed it was spelled wrong in your subtitle also. Giving the blanket a name would help to distinguish it from other patterns for crochet baby blankets. I have one titled Ashley's Baby Blanket.
Drop the "s" on beginners in the title.
Okay, first and foremost, welcome to HubPages. I hope you already love it here!
Your hub is very short. I would shoot for at least 700 words. That sounds daunting, but you can do it.
Title: The title of your hub is very descriptive, so you definitely know what's up in terms of identifying your topic. Awesome. Now let's spice up the title with some words that make me, (pretend I'm just a random person searching Google), want to click YOUR hub over any of the other baby crochet blankets in Google search: goo.gl/OkvxWh
How about something like:

Now, let's say I'm a beginner, which I am. I've crocheted a little, but that's it. I know there are different types of yarn and different types of needles. You could talk about that.
For this project, I used "Awesome Brand" yarn in sea foam, but since this is a versatile pattern you can use any type of yarn (if that's true for your pattern) for this project. I was able to create this piece using three skeins of yarn and had a little left over. It's important to purchase all of your skeins together to ensure they are from the same dye lot.
For this project, I used "Awesome Brand" yarn in sea foam. I highly recommend using this yarn or something similar because some of the more decorative yarns tend to snag with this pattern. I was able to create this piece using three skeins of yarn, but I nearly ran out, so I would recommend buying four skeins to get a nice sized baby blanket. I want to stress the importance of purchasing all of your skeins at once. This ensures they are from the same dye lot. Skeins from a different dye lot can actually appear dramatically different.
Okay, so now I'm a beginner and I don't know crochet vocabulary. Can you explain what chain 90 means? Can you show me a picture of a chain? Also, I don't know what SC means or HDC. Could you explain those terms? Showing the reader "how" might seem condescending, but adopt a friendly tone and explain the hard parts (and totally admit it's hard.)
For example: knit 5 rows, perl 2.
"Perling can be difficult for some people, but I've found that yadda yadda yadda has helped me with________."
I hope this helps.
You have to check your grammar too... this:
"note: Keep track of the rows complete. my method is make 4 lines and crossing the 5th on paper of course ( Yes old school)"
Note: keep track of each row completed. I use old fashioned pen and paper, grouping the rows into five (four 1s with a line through for the fifth row).
Make sure you use a capital letter for the beginning of each sentence and look out for extra unwanted spacing - as after the bracket and before 'Yes' above.
