I really enjoyed this Danvers taster pattern. It was very clear from the written pattern and I really like the chart - a bit of a visual learner. I was especially pleased that I was able to work the Danvers pattern to the expected size in the 10 ply aran cotton. On the strength of this, I bought the full Manderley pattern and am half way through the next size up - Maxim. Am planning on working the full blanket in red cotton - and have bought all of the yarn I'll need so that I won't have any problems with the dye lot.
