The pattern wasn't too difficult.  At first, I messed up counting and tried to correct it in the next round.  That made it worse.  I never ripped, though...and you can see it still turned out ok.

The difficult part of the pattern was when the designer.  After you get what the designer calls 'segments' figured out - it is all just visual.  There is no need for counting or even stitch markers.

I'm considering making a pink and white one for baby Mia. The only reason I want to is because I absolutely want to make another!  lol

Ohhhh one more thing.  It does require basic crocheting.  Since I've been crocheting pretty much all my life, I assume all knitters know how to crochet, too. LOL

Where is my mind?

Your Spidey blanket is fantastic.  I like it loads better than the crocheted ones I have seen... and having seen this I have already put a message out to my machine knitting group to see if it can be done on my knitting machine - boy I hope it can be!!  Thanks for the pattern link - far too often I see tons of where'd you get the pattern from's - having it right out in the open from the get go is super nice!
You did an amazing job (hahahha just realized that Amazing and Spiderman kind of go hand in hand as well in comic book land!) Cheesy

I am collecting quilts, afghans & blankets for those that lost their homes.  Pm me!

It looks straight out of a comic book! The colors are perfect, the stitches look perfect to me. And I love the 2nd picture of your son!!! He's got a Hershey Bar, and a Spidey blankie, and all is right with the world...
