Notes

Testing a new project that is to be released in the fall. Pictures will be added when we get closer to the release date. Wait till you see it! The texture is amazing!!
I will say this one is my all time favorite blanket I’ve tested for Helen. Will be a go to pattern when I need a really special gift.
I started with the idea I would make this in just one color. Not something done often for tests. This would perhaps give a different look to the project and give a different color idea.
As I got into it I resized even with all the texture parts were running together and needed highlighted. I added a light tan to my cream and it really make the design pop! Something to consider!
Be sure to use stitch markers and count often

The color sequence…
ALL ROUNDS ARE CREAM EXCEPT ROUNDS…
5, 14, 22, 28, 38, 47, 48, 63, 65, 74, 85, 86, 88 THESE ARE TAN
