I recently completed this kit. The pattern is very well done and easy to follow. The Mallo is wonderful yarn to work with. I have used pickup sticks in weaving patterns before; the pattern sequence easily became a rhythm for weaving. To stitch the 2 panels together, I did Figure 8 (AKA mattress stitch if you're also a knitter) using the Mallo yarn. The seam is barely visible. The blanket turned out very well.
I loved weaving this beautiful and soft blanket. The waffle pattern is simple to weave with a lovely result. My only complaint is that the pattern calls for a 4.5-yard warp. This brings you right up against the 2 cones of yarn, so you really can't afford to do any sampling. At the same time, I had about two feet of usable warp (not including the usual 23" of warp waste my loom requires) left over after finishing the two panels.
Would love to make this but can not get the file to download an open
Thank you for sharing this pattern. Directions were great . . . I used it to make pillows.
