Well not really. It started with the kangaroo which now has led to the koala. It seems like there is a connection but I actually did the koala about two years ago. I finally found the original chart and decided that it needed an overhaul, which meant whole new directions and testing. I warn you right now that all the testing was done by me, so you all know what that means! I did try very hard to pay attention and catch any errors. This time around though, there is a chart included in the pdf file so you can double check me. (Don't you love the "original" name of this pattern?)
And to Maria, who does live Down Under, I hope you'll like this well enough to include it in your special baby blanket! I'll be watching for pictures!
