  1. I love how easy your patterns are to follow and they are less fussy than the vintage patterns. I do love vintage patterns though. x

    1. I too love the old designs - but I hate all the joining!
      So I try to make my patterns just as cute - but much easier to make.

  2. Hi Marianna, I love your preemie patterns. My local neonatal clinic has preemie singlets on their wish list and I wondered if you would have a pattern to be able to knit some for them.


    1. Would this be suitable ?

  3. Dear Marianne, Increasingly impressed by your patterns and work, and inventiveness. Am new to knitting anything more than small squares for patchwork and delighted to find your easy-knit patterns for hats,socks and jackets for preemies. Thank you!

  4. First time knitter. Making this for first grandbaby....not sure of gender. Bernat Baby Blanket Yarn? Not sure how many skeins to buy to make largest size listed on this pattern. Help! Thank you!

  5. Hi,
    I’m not very good at reading patterns so what would it be if I was to do it for the 30” blanket and I’m in Australia is the yarn the same

  6. Beautiful pattern! And I love that you have the jacket and hat to match!! Can you help with yardage? How many yards do I need for a 30" blanket? I'm going to use DK yarn with 4 mm needles. Thank you!!
