Have only completed the large middle square. It looks good and very Cheerful Very pleased so far.
Loved the look of this and bought it in pack form as I thought this would be easier. Oh no! I had many problems with it, mostly to do with yarn quantities. When I received the pack, there were only 5 balls of light green in the pack instead of 6, but when I contacted Deramores they assured me 5 would be sufficient. Of course, they weren't. It took 7 in the end! I also ran out of Sunkissed 15, Canary yellow, light orange and light yellow. Because of the nature of the pattern I could not tell which colour was going to run out until it had almost done so, so that meant a lot if time waiting for more yarn, usually 2 weeks, and additional postage. In the end I substituted some of the colours in the border for some I had left and it worked ok. Unfortunately, the last ball of light green was a different dye lot and I can see the difference in it and the rest of the blanket which isn't very satisfactory. I feel that if Deramoers are going to provide a yarn pack for a pattern they should have it tested before putting on sale. Additionally, there were several mistakes in the pattern which I had to work out and correct myself. The overall look of the blanket is good but the experience was very frustrating.
I have just completed this blanket and am really pleased with the result. The colours are lovely, bright and summery, the pattern easy to follow. The only problem that I had was with the yarn quantity. I ran out of the sunkissed yellow and had to order an extra one but ended up with a spare sunkissed orange. perhaps the quantities of these two are the wrong way around?
