Hi everyone! I have been working on the Heart Baby Blanket, a free pattern on Ravelry. I’m using Bernat Satin (acrylic) which is the same yarn used in the Ravelry pattern. I even did a swatch before starting to check gauge! However, my blanket doesn’t have the definition that is shown on the pictures of the finished product on Ravelry. Any ideas why mine doesn’t t look as defined and crisp? (I haven’t washed it yet, But I’m not sure that would make a difference.) Maybe I should have used a size smaller needle? Maybe they blocked theirs for the picture? I wanted something that the new mom could just throw in the washer and didn’t need to fuss over, but I’m disappointed that the hearts aren’t more defined. The first picture is the picture from the ravelry pattern and the second picture is mine. Any thoughts/ideas are greatly appreciated.
