It looks fine to me - love the contrast between the blue and white. :D

Zoe that is one amazing blanket. Love the colouring. Did it take you long? I am thinking of making one next winter.

Sheri, I can't see any error either, and when a baby is wrapped in it who could tell? I would worry more about a cold baby than any slight error.

Crochet blanket (43" x 62") using 2 strands of coned yarn giving roughly aran thickness using this pattern http://www.redheart.com/free-patterns/c ... ured-throw.
As I said on another thread , I didn't spot the pattern is in US terms so I did UK terms. It said to do 20 pattern repeats but at this point it was WAY too short, only then did I realize my mistake! So I carried on and ended up doing 42 repeats and then made up my own border to use up the rest of the yarn - used up 1250g of stash :-)

That looks a lovely warm blanket. What size did it end up Jackie? I have a lovely turquoise coned 4ply. So I may copy your pattern.

It ended up 43x62", using 5mm hook and I increased the starting chain to 139 giving 45 repeats across the row.

Thanks Jacqui, made a note of that. Pretty much as the pattern said. I must get these other blankets finished first.
