I’ve wanted to do this project for soooo long, and I finally have the perfect opportunity to do it!

The crocheting is a bit hard on my hands, so I usually only get about one pattern repeat finished per day when I’m working on it. The color is off in the photo of the nearly-finished blanket. I don’t know what kind of wrong camera setting I used for that photo. The color is much more accurate in the “just begun” photo and the photos of the finished blanket.

4/25 The blanket is almost finished, and I am love, love, loving it! No errata is marked on the pattern page, but the chart in the magazine has several errors. The written instructions are correct, but the chart has switched crossings in several places.

4/26 Machine washed & dried the blanket, and it stood up fine to being tossed in with a bunch of towels. Will mail to my niece tomorrow :)

The only reason I rated this pattern as four stars instead of five is because of the mistakes in the chart, and the lack of errata on the Interweave Crochet website. Otherwise, I think this pattern is brilliant, and I will be making it again!
