This is the first knitted pattern I have ever made, and it turned out beautifully. Easy to follow instructions for this crocheter-turned-knitter. I used 8 mm needles and ww yarn, and knitted 3 rows at the beginning and ends. Lovely!

Can you tell me how many stitches you would cast on if you wanted to make this baby blanket sizw?

I too noticed several errors. It states to use 3.75 mm needle or needle to get gauge, and there is no gauge given. Also there is nothing in the pattern to indicate there is any kind of border, except the 2 knit stitches at the beginning and end of each row. I'm going to have a go at it today, when I work it out, I'll post it here tomorrow or the next day.

hello:I was just going to make the kitchen dishcloth noni s favorite I don t know what you mean by k2[k1,p2]x11, k3. i don t know what x11 means. thank you. nmerk@telus.net

It means knit 2 stitches, then follow pattern as follows Knit 1, purl 2 stitches , 11 times then knit 3 stitches to finish.

in knitting patterns when there are instructions in brackets they indicate what is to be repeated to create the pattern in this case you are repeating the k1,p2 11 times before moving onto the k3. hope this helps.

It looks like you have a border row(s) of several knit stitches?

It looks like 4 rows of knit stitch first before starting pattern. Also 4 knit stitches at beginning and end of each row. Then finish with 4 rows of knit stitch.

There is a note at the bottom of the pattern indicating that there are 3 rows of knit at the beginning and end of the pattern.

Me too, Error message Cute pattern!!

I was just able to access the pattern. It did take a while for the pattern to load, but the page showed up for me. Make sure your browser is up to date, as that may also be causing problems :)

Can't open--error message

It looks as though the blogger's site may have been down temporarily. I just tried to access the pattern and was successful :) Hopefully everything is working okay for you now.

Error message also

error message on opening????
