I LOVE this pattern!! I actually think it came out quite a bit nicer in real life than in the pictures!
My only complaint is that I realized after I started that the starting chain was WAY too long. The instructions say to chain 120, but I ended up unravelling all my work after a few rows and starting over with ch90 instead. The blanket came out quite proportional with a starting chain of 90. Not sure why mine came out so wide originally but in any case it was an easy mistake to fix.
