I've been eyeing this pattern for quite some time. Thanks, Nashira, for posting the pattern.
Here is it blocking:

and this gives a more accurate representation of the colour:

I used superwash wool that I bought on a whim when I didn't have the pattern with me. Consequently I didn't have quite enough, so I could only do 10 repeats instead of eleven. The finished size was about 30" wide by 27" long.  I have already given this blanket to the recipient, who loved it. I thought the pattern was going to be really difficult, but i found it to be pretty easy. I'd really like to make a grown-up sized one sometime, but probably not any time soon!

What a beautiful blanket.  I love the pattern as well as the colour you chose.

Sometimes you get to change the world, and other times the world changes you.

Ditto the previous commenter re pattern and colour.

I looove this pattern - but have never gathered my needles (and courage) to try it. Was it exceedingly difficult? 'Cause it sure looks that way.

Great job!

Aw, shucks. Thanks for the compliments! Jane2, I did not find it difficult --as long as you can do increases and decreases, you'll be fine. It's much easier to make than it looks! I have made a second one, and am partway through a third one at the moment (my friends keep having babies!). You should give the pattern a try Smiley
