  9. Marianne when you mention :Repeat from ** to ** three times more do you mean to repeat row 11 to 14 3x? Thanks

    1. You repeat all the rows between ** and **
      The first ** is before row 15
      The second ** is after row 38
      So you repeat ALL of these rows - That is rows 15 - 38.
      Hope this helps . M

  10. If making the 30'jordon blanket with 176 stitches, how many extra rows do i need to do and approx how much wool will it take, thank you

    1. Usually I make blankets the same length as they are wide.
      So if you have 30" width - work until you have 30" in length :)

  29. Hello

    This is my favourite baby blanket pattern. I have made three now in different sizes and colours.

  30. Hiya Marianna, I'm currently making this blanket following your pattern & I'm maybe just over half way through & I'm wondering, I'm making the 24" size & I assume if I was to follow the written pattern I would end up with 24" by 15".. What rows would I need to repeat & could you tell me how many times to get to 24"?, I assume it would be the 15-38 X3 bit I would need to do more of but if I do it an extra 2 times would the bit where I repeat 15-24 for the last bit work out well with the bumps?
    Hope I've made sense, thank you

    1. To add length - repeat rows 15 - 38 until you are happy with the length of your blanket. Happy knitting. M
