I'm playing in the yarn along again. I am very excited as I have the exact number of squares required for this blanket.
What do they look like?
The pattern is from Royal Babies, a Patons publication from the early '80's. Most of the yarn is from the same era, though some of it is from even earlier than that.
No preciousness about this I used whatever was there and discovered that not all 3 ply baby yarns are created the same. The yarns are all synthetic - mostly nylon or acrylic or a mix of the two as in the white border yarn, of which I did have to buy one ball.
