Comments

  1. I think there is an error in this pattern. I am working on Rnd 4 of the face. In the last part of Rnd 4, it says that you are supposed to do a DC in the next 9 DC, do 3 DC in the next DC and then do a Dc in the next 9 DC. I went back and did the stitch count for the end of Rnd 3. There is a total of 17 stitches. If this Rnd is correct, then HOW am I supposed to fit 19 stitches into 17 stitches? I ripped it out at least twice before I re-counted the stitches because I couldn’t figure out what I was doing wrong! This is really frustrating! Could someone please check this part of the pattern and let me know if this is an error? Thank you!

  2. My husband and I have made 5 of these beauties as gifts for first time mommies. The last was for twins….a boy and a girl. Makes me feel all toasty inside when I run into these new mommies in a store and their little ones are wrapped in this adorable blankie.
