WOW they are both great! Thanks for sharing the pattern. I am thinking that doing one in my son's school colors would be great to keep him warm with the Pep Band during football season! Or maybe even as a part of a fundraiser raffle at an event.

 

Thanks again! Great work!

Sorry if this is a silly question, but when you say 5-7 pounds, is that of each color or total? I plan to make this in blue and green for my future sister-in-law's birthday. Hope to get a response soon! :)
