Purchased because it's NOT a cookie cutter cute giraffe and love the pattern but there is a problem with the graph. The columns & rows are numbered on the wrong axis so I had to rewrite them.
I made this in sport weight (pattern calls for worsted) & only used 1 color with white in the graph being knits & dark as purls. I got a lightweight blanket and the design is subtle.
I used 739 yards/206 grams of sport acrylic yarn with a US 4 needle and it is 41" wide and 32" tall. (I should have made swatches to make sure the blanket was taller than wide.) I have a 1/2" crocheted border that I added after the knitting was finished.
