    I’ve been attempting to make this blanket I realized in the first steps you need to keep it pretty loose. I had trouble with going to the left arm and the space between the too just get bigger. Is that the main thing to keep the knots loose and give some space between loops on the starting casting on. I tried another method found the instructions to confusing so I switched to doing it your way. I’m trying to knit a baby blanket but with smaller acrylic. I’ll probably do 20 stitches by 20.
    Thanks for any insight
