Beautiful kit, but... Review by Catherine

Price
Ease of Use

First of all, this blanket is beautiful! The yarn is soft and snuggly. The colors are lovely. The instructions are clear and detailed with an 8 X10 full color picture on the front of heavy folded paper stock. It all comes in a neat clear zippered vinyl bag to keep everything together and protected.

Now for the "but". This is an expensive kit and they short you on the blue yarn! I frogged nine rows and re-worked them trying to squeak out enough blue to finish. I was still half a row short. I went back and read the reviews, and discovered I'm not the only one who had this problem. MM customer service seemed to be aware of the problem as well when I called them. The rep was very nice, apologized profusely and definitely understood what it's like to be trying to finish a project in time for gift-giving only to run out of yarn within a few rows of finishing!. The rep was appreciative of my explanation that I had unraveled nine rows and tightened up on my tension to no avail. She said it would help her let superiors know the problem is not just with a particular crafter. She sent me another skein of the blue yarn and I may just get the blanket finished in time yet.

Overall, I am happy that I purchased this kit, but if you get it, make sure there are 5 skeins of blue before you even start! It's great that customer service will send you another blue if you call them, but for this price, you shouldn't have to call.

This afghan is stunning and the colors & pattern are absolutely beautiful. I have made this blanket a few times upon request.
The pattern is easy to follow as well.

Rave reviews from moms and dads Review by Shelly

I gave one of these to a co-worker for his second child. Comparing his reaction to the one from the more traditional blanket I made for his first baby, this one really knocked his socks off. He said his daughter was already trying to steal it from baby brother. I have made several others since then, and have always been pleased with the results. The shape of this blanket, as well as the way the colors blend so gently together really makes it stand out, and it works great for boys or girls. The pattern is easy and fun, and can readily be adapted to other colors and yarns, and used to make handsome blankets for all occasions and decors.

I have made this 3 times for gifts. It comes out beautifully! It is easy to make and feels as it goes fast as you are changing colors often

This is a beautiful afghan nonetheless. Was a little bit short on the blue color although followed directions. Just added more green.
