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.

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
