Just curious...what size needles and what kind of yarn are you using?

Keep up the great work!
I'm working with 3mm needles and mostly Double Knit (or Light Worsted/8-ply depending where in the world you are). There are a few 4-ply colours in there that are worked double-strand to be the right thickness, and 2 or 3 Aran (Worsted/10-ply) colours

These are all so amazing, maybe one day I'll try it out as well. Congrats to those that have already finished, that's such an achievement.

I definitely feel inspired by lexbubbles' blanket. I kind of want to try making it with simple crochet or Tunisian crochet buuut I don't think I am willing to make the commitment. :shock: I already have some huge cross stitch WIPs on my plate. I am so excited to see how the knitted version comes out.

I don't crochet myself, but I imagine a crocheted version would work up even quicker than my knit counterpart!

Speaking of, I finished the Rapidash portrait (here, if anyone wants to see it) and have begun work on the 4th chart (#3, as read, with Lapras' head and half a Ditto)

Like a few other people it seems, this cross stitch brought me to the boards!
I haven't stitched in years, but thought I'd give this one a go as I love it so much.

This is about 2 weeks of work instead of studying :grin:

I saw this pattern years ago, but I have made plenty of excuses not to make it. I finally buckled down and bought the materials. This is about a month's work, on 18 Aida cloth. I didn't know there was a WIP thread for this project, so I signed up just to join this thread.

To the person who is knitting this pattern - you are my hero. I grew up watching my mom crochet and knit, and I thought she was undefeatable in talent. You blow her out of the water. I can't crochet or knit to save my life.
