What materials did you use? Cascade Yarns Eco+, 100% Peruvian wool, approx. 478 yds / 250 gram hank: 3 hanks #6913 Azalea Pink (MC) and 1 hank #8457 Sunshine Yellow (CC)
What advice would you give someone starting this project? Keep to the gauge and yarn thickness used to achieve the correct size. If you need to substitute from the Cascade Yarns Eco, choose a yarn of similar grist (thickness), not a thinner yarn like Cascade Yarns 220 - which, even doubled, will be too thin to create a good fabric at the given gauge. I really do recommend natural fibers. Our world is synthetic and toxic enough, without swaddling children, from birth, in chemically coated or altered superwash wools, or unbreathable acrylic or nylon blends.
