- baby blanket
this is one of my favorite patterns for baby blanket...it doesn't have holes for little fingers and toes to get caught in...will use it for many years. Easy for a beginner to follow.
The kit is good, although be aware the main yarn colour is less grey than pictured - it's "parchment", more an ecru colour. The pattern is easy - it's missing the really obvious/important instruction to "repeat rows 1 and 2 till the end" but it is hopefully self evident to non-beginners.
I have made this longer than the pattern and only used 2 balls of wool any ideas why there is 5 balls of parchment ?
Delivery took quite a long time as it does say 2-3 days it’s more like 6 also one of the white balls of wool had a couple of knots in
