I love the way this turned out, but the pattern wasnít very well written. Still, it is a lovely blanket. For my chiropractorís new baby.
First time Iíve used the Nashua Creative Focus, and I really like it. Itís very soft. A bit splitty on the crochet bind-off, but very nice for the money. Iíll definitely use it again. Got it from Webs (http://www.yarn.com/webs-knitting-crochet-yarns-nashua/webs-knitting-crochet-yarns-nashua-creative-focus-superwash/) for half-price!


Pattern: Sleeping Beauty Baby Blanket (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/sleeping-beauty-baby-blanket-2)
Yarn: Nashua Creative Focus Superwash in Pale Green

What a beautiful blanket! Seems like I'm always needing a baby blanket for a gift these days and love to have new patterns.

What issues did you find with the way the pattern was written? Would like to hear your suggestions, changes, etc.

This is amazing looking; it looks like something you would be in a high end store. I hope I can knit this beautifully one day.

Beautiful blanket! :muah: It looks like an heirloom. So sophisticated, if a baby item can be such. I love the corners.

On my baby blaket project I was yet unsure about the border part. I had thought of ribbing. Now I know better. I will plan out something like this (but maybe smaller) with the little cables. That is so cute! Thanks for the inspiration.

It took almost a month, but I was working a lot of overtime and not knitting much. The bind-off took forever, with 568 stitches on the needles!

The pattern is apparently still being test knit. There were a couple of places in the border instructions where brackets or asterisks were misplaced, so I had to really pay attention. But nothing I couldn't figure out by looking at pictures of finished blankets on Ravelry.
