Dorothy Finkel was inspired by G.C. Lamb to create a Passap version of a cute lamb blanket. She has converted both G.C. and this little lamb to 2-colour tuck Birdseye Jacquard on both her Brother 970 and her Passap E-6000. On the Brother, her version is preemie sized. On the Passap using 2/17 yarn, it is baby sized at 36" x 36".
Dorothy has kindly offered her Passap cut file and instructions. Download the file below. She uses Win_crea. If you have any questions please email Dorothy at firstname.lastname@example.org as I know nothing about Passaps at all. I am very grateful to Dorothy for sharing her lamb blanket with us.
