  1. Courtney says:

    I love this pattern! Can you suggest another yarn with no wool in it that would be comparable?

  2. Hi Courtney, for non wool I would recommend Brava Bulky Yarn from knit picks.

  3. Can you tell me approximately what size this would be? I assume medium? I would like to make an XL one, about how many inches wide would the first row need to be? I love the simplicity of this pattern, rectangle, I can do rectangle! Thank you so much for posting this.

  4. HI Laura, it fit from size small to large. for the guage is 2 criss cross stitch = 1.5 inch. I have add photo how to measure the guage in the post.

  5. I just finished this. Used Mainstay yarn from Walmart. 1.97 skein, and only took 5 skeins. Also couldn’t figure out camel stitch and used low ridge front. Looks great. I am larger so I used the span from fingertips and size was perfect. I just kept trying it on for length.

  6. aww that so sweet of u Debbie. Thanks for making it so pretty.
