  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?

  4. Think you will need about 500g of DK wool

  5. Beautiful blanket ! Thank you Marianna for all your free patterns ! I am definitely going to make this one next . 😊

  6. How much wool will in need for the larger size blanket?

  7. What size knitting needles. What are 4mm size.

  8. Hi!
    4 mm (metric) needles are size 6 US needles or size 8 UK/Canadian.

  9. I am so happy to find this pattern. I have made many of your patterns and now I look for them because they are easy for me to understand and I am always pleased with the finished product. Thank you so much. :)

  10. Love your patterns. I have made the sweater and hat sets for both boys and girls. I’m not normally a knitter but you’re patterns are really easy to follow. Thank you so much!

  11. How much yard would you need for the bigger blanket?

  12. Is this blanket done with a variegated yarn? It looks like two separate colors used; rows are same colors.

    1. No - this is not variegated yarn - the pattern stitch has lots of texture and it makes it look this way with just a self-coloured yarn. M xx
