This was the first time I'd ever had a submission accepted, and my first time working with a 3rd party on a design, and it was truly a pleasant experience...so pleasant in fact that I worked with Cascade again on another design that I'll review in another post. Anyway, I was really excited to see how well received the design was. As of this date, it's been listed as a favorite 900 times, and is in 293 ques with 24 active projects currently on Ravelry! It's been downloaded hundreds of times through Ravelry (not to mention all of the direct downloads from Cascade's website, which I can't track). It was 'faved' by Jared Flood. It was included in the October edition of Vogue Knitting's monthly newsletter. And it remains my most popular design to date.
Now, here is a fun gallery of projects from knitters on Ravelry who have altered the pattern in fun ways, ranging from changing the gauge to create an heirloom baby blanket, to using a luxuriously soft yarn to make a blanket that you just can't stop touching! Enjoy!
