  2. Hi Marianna, I have knitted this many times for the 'babyboxproject' which gives starter baby packs to new Moms that are destitute. This pattern has been wonderful, thank you!

  3. Hi there, love the patterns. I was going to make the largest size, but after the increase rows it doesn't give the number of stitches you should have.....although it does on the small size.....puts me off a bit as I like to check I have the right number of stitches. I'd hate to knit 20 rows only to find I'd gone wrong somewhere....
