          Safari Blanket

          I absolutely love the blanket. Only just started knitting it but am really enjoying it. The amount of wool you receive is unbelievable. There will definitely be plenty left. It seems very good value for money. Would definitely recommend. Can't wait to finish it for my grandson. Arrived very quickly too.

          Safari KAL pattern

          So pleased the separate pattern became available for this. As a deramores studio dk addict I have plenty of yarn to knit this without needing to buy the kit
