Easy to knit and cuddly for my new grandbaby. This pattern is also timeless and suitable for boys or girls. Definitely a blanket that will last for years!
Clear instructions though the chart provided was difficult to read ,even when enlarged. I knitted the small square blanket and it was a pleasure to create.
