Beautiful and pattern gets easier 2nd time around Review by Gigi
Quality
Price
Ease of Use

I have made this twice now and it was much easier the second time around. I did make notes for the first one which helped a lot when I made my second blanket. You just have to really follow the pattern and read it very carefully. I was able to add a few rows to make it a little bigger. If you do that on one of the rows where the stitches are all the same, it should go well. I added the extra rows after I reached the section where the blanket turns into a square. But, be careful. I had to decrease some of my stitches to make sure I had the right stitch count when I continued with the written pattern. But the blanket is beautiful and I may be making a third one very soon.

Difficult Pattern to follow Review by Charlene
Quality
Price
Ease of Use

I love this blanket once finished, but it really needs a stitch layout or something for the border as to what it is trying to do.
I also found that even after tearing out rows (rounds) from missing a count and re-doing it carefully, there are a few places in the pattern where the counts are off, usually in the corners. But, once you get a feel for what it's supposed to be, it falls into a nice easy pattern.
I would definitely not recommend for someone just starting out or unable to visualize the pattern. I found myself looking at the front more than once to figure out what was supposed to be going on.

I have made two so far. Look forward to making more in the future. The size is a bit smaller than the norm for baby blankets. However, it makes a great baby shower gift, and I put a note in it that when baby grows out of it; the blanket will grow with baby as it can be her doll's blanket -which will get used much. Also as a toddler it can make a great travel blanket as it will not drag on the floor. Then if she wants, she can keep it for her possible daughter, or treasure it as she grew with it.
Concerning the pattern, definitely have to count the stitches which helps you to know if you are following the pattern correctly.
The person who received it; raved over it. The first one I made; I am keeping for my first granddaughter whenever that may be. If God blesses me with more, I plan on making this blanket for each one of them. I love this pattern that much. Yes, it is work, and well worth it.

I Tore My Hair Out!!! Review by Anniem

The end result was lovely, getting there was not. As a veteran of 30 years I've come to accept that some patterns are written better than others. This was one of the "others".
Not recommended for the Newbie or the impatient, with perseverance the end result IS gratifying.
I must admit I made it for a new Mom with few resources and in need of help. That being said, if anyone deserved this kind of work it was she. However, I really can't see me making this again, no matter the end result.

Beautiful Blanket Review by Lynn

I just finished this afghan and it is just beautiful. I had to tear out and redo a couple times, but that was because I didn't read the pattern carefully and I thought I was doing things right when I wasn't. Once I decided it was a good idea to count my stiches, I had no troubles. The yarn that came with the kit is beautiful, soft and easy to work with. I ordered 2 kits when they were on sale and can't wait to make the other one and see how that color comes out.

Interestiing Review by Elaine

I read the reviews and when it went on sale I ordered it to see if I could make it. It was a challenge. I was surprised that I was able to follow the directions. I had plenty of markers and I had a specal notbook. I was surprised that I could follow row 28. The only thing was rows 31 & 32 seem to come out at a different #. Maybe it was jus tme and my crocheting.. Wish the patterns were in symbols also.

BEAUTIFUL BUT…? Review by elizabeth

This was just beautiful. Not an easy pattern, was able to get it. My only issue is size. A little too small. I wish I was clever enough to figure out myself how to make this bigger. I would purchase pattern only to have directions in a larger size, since I am too lazy to plot out the changes to make it larger.

I haven't crochet for awhile but with new grand baby expected thought I would start again. This particular pattern and color pattern of yarn caught my interest. I found the directions a little confusing however after unworking a few rows I was able to understand the authors directions. The beautiful large photo for reference was a lot of help as well. The finished product is beautiful and I know it will be appreciated. This kit is definitely a winner!

Beautiful pattern, easy to do & worth the price Review by Karen

I ordered this kit at a sale price. Then I read the reviews & saw that so many people had issues with the directions. I then had seconds thoughts about the order. I am so glad I didn't change my mind.
I did not find any issues with the directions. Granted you must count your stitches (alot of patterns are like that) but if time is taken & you read line per line even in row 28 you should have no issues getting it right. I did not find it difficult at all.
In fact I ordered a second one even before the 1st one arrived.
It took me only 2days to complete the afghan.
It is a lovely pattern and the yarn is soft as well.
