I downloaded this pattern. I liked that the pattern had a chart and also written instructions. Also the pattern stitch repeat was given which would make it easy to alter the size of the completed afghan. Using this pattern I intend to knit a baby afghan with baby yarn, smaller needles, and fewer stitches. I expect it will turn out as nicely as the Gansey Afghan.

I want to thank the pattern makers for adding fully written instructions for this afghan. It's available in the Electronic Pattern Purchase. I did just purchase it. Thank you much for listening to your customers. Not all of us are able to read charts for various reasons... for me, my husband or grandkids have to read the instructions for me because the up and back reading motion makes me dizzy. I have many complicated patterns that are fully written out.... and I wish all pattern makers would take those like me in consideration. Again thank you. I never expected this and it was a delightful surprise!

A nice straight-forward pattern with a great result, but not great value for money!!

My first afghan and I made it in grey for my 28 year old son. He absolutely loved it!!!! Took me a while to learn to read the pattern and learn all the nuances of knitting but after hours spent I am happy to say it actually turned out well! One thing: I did miss read one section and developed my own pattern and it looks just fine in the middle of the afghan. I would knit this one again, especially for a man. Will also add that my girls loved it too, so it may appear two more times in my knitting. I am new but so what if one has to learn everything at once. It was fun and very much worth the time and effort it took to see the astonished look on my son's face when he found out his mom had made it. Have fun everyone.

I believe for the money that the instructions should be written out as well as charted. It is marked Easy and I don't think a beginner knitter would know how to read the chart. The stitches are all knit/purl but not as varied as suggested. Also, it comes in a large envelope but not strengthened by even a piece of cardboard so arrived bent edges turned down.
