rgle8158254 asked:
the sweet pea blanket how long did it take you to make and how much yarn did you use thank you carol iam in the blue shirt my daughter is be hind me.
fit2knit answered:
oh boy, i dunno...i stopped and started over too long of a time. I used 3-4 skeins of each...the white yarn not as much. I recommend starting with 4 of each in same dye lot. The pattern is on lionbrand.com under Sweet Pea afghan.
rachelcar64757 asked:
Your edge trim is different than the pattern and it really adds so much to the overall effect. Looks like it's a simple stitch, but you did it so very well!
fit2knit answered:
:) Yes it is..I made it up as I went and watched the blanket transform before my eyes each time I laid it out on the bed. Thanks for noticing!
NancyRichardson asked:
I just love it! What brand of yarn did you use, what colors and how much for the size that you did?
fit2knit answered:
I used Lion Brand's Vanna's Choice in Angel White, Sweet Pea, and Pink Poodle. I believe I used 4 skeins of each.
