Notes

Loopy Ewe KAL - what a fun pattern! The charts are excellent. MY FO is 5’9” after blocking. The only weak point in this pattern, IMHO, is the finish. Could just be me, but I didn’t achieve as clean a join between the first and last points as I would have liked. I doubt the recipients of the blanket will notice.

Blocking is very tedious, but well worth the time. Expect to spend at least half a day blocking. Flexible blocking wires work well and give nice points; however, I only had the 2 that came with my Knit Picks blocking kit. Each wire blocked ~12 points out of 110!

Found the “disappearing” circular CO on YouTube demonstrated by MountainMom. Used the 2nd CO that begins around the 4:45 minute mark.
