  1. Please help with specifics for the Charlie Babe Blanket.
    DK (8 ply) yarn ... how much? I'm not good at guessing, and don't currently live in a country where it's easy to go back and find more of what I need. Thanks so much.

  2. What does the reverse look like?

  3. How much of the wool do you need for this blanket?
