  1. I love this pattern. One quick question, is the yarn doubled? By the looks of the pic, it is.


    1. Yes, the yarn is held doubled. Thank you for posting your comment. I will edit the pattern to be more clear. Thank you!


    2. I figured it was, but it's best to be sure! I will make some for the babies of Pine Ridge.

  3. Why does row 2 say 8" or 16"? Which is it? Thanks very much!!

  4. Hi rscowtown. Sorry to confuse you.
    The blanket it a total of 24" long. You can make the opening at either end and that is why I say you repeat row 2 for 8 or 16 inches.

    I hope this helps.
