In the “Forever Favorites--Fifty years of Family Classics” by Leisure Arts this pattern was changed just sts and 40 rows & 4 inches instead of sts& and they recommend Patons Kroy 3 Ply for the yarn and don’t mention the Beehive Baby yarn.
Getting ready to cast this on. Not sure what color yet though. Cream, like in the picture, a heathered forest green (one of my favorite colors) or a dark amber/harvest heather color (my other favorite color). by reva
