    I would just like to order the pattern for the Home Blanket. Is that not possibe?

    Can’t seem to get past being asked how much yarn I want. Please advise.

    Thanks

    I have spend several evenings on this pattern, and I end up with extra stitches after knitting row 4. After knitting YO 6 times, you add stitches. Where are these extra stitches ‘used up’? What am I doing wrong? Help.

    Thanks,
    Wilma Franz

    Hi Wilma,

    Row 4 reads:
    Row 4: K1, *[k2tog] 3 times, [yo, k1] 6 times, [k2tog] 3 times; rep from * to last st, k1.

    So each repeat contains 6 increases ([yo, k1] 6 times) and 6 decreases ([k2tog] 3 times + [k2tog] 3 times). So each 18 stitch repeat should remain 18 sts.
    If you’re ending up with too many stitches at the end of the row, I recommend looking back through the row and ensuring you’ve made the correct number of increases and decreases throughout, perhaps even putting a stitch marker between each repeat.

    Hope this helps!

    Hi Sara – I am having the same problem as Wilma. I have undone and redone the 4th row 4 times now so I am not sure what I am doing wrong. Please help 🙂
