This pattern has not been tested by anyone other than myself. My tester was unable to complete testing and I can’t wait any longer with publishing as too many have asked for the pattern. So if you run into any problems please do let me know by sending an email or by posting a comment below. Thanks!
Below is an image of the last minute test swatch that I crocheted. I used Bernat Handicrafter cotton yarn and an H – 5.00mm hook. I started off with 16 chains and the finished measurement came out to 7″ square. It’s the perfect size for a baby washcloth or dishcloth.
Anyway, everything looked okay as far as I can tell…the only thing that remains in question now is whether or not the edging will work out on the blanket as instructed. If I did the math correct, you need to have an uneven amount of stitches and rows for it to work out. So starting off with an even amount of chains will give you that. Just a heads up though, starting at row 3 all the way up to the last row you will have an even stitch number. This is brought back to an uneven number at the very last row by doing a decrease.
Let me know if you run into problems. Thank you.
