The second row starts with *K1 and the sequence ends with K1; then says to repeat from *K1 - does that mean there will be two K1's together? I am trying to make a swatch before I begin the actual afghan. Want to make it for our future great grandson.

I would like to make this for a baby in 8 ply (sports yarn) but would like to make it larger, what is the sequence of stitches to make this larger please, i.e. what is the repeat. Thank you

I made this afghan for my mother-in-law 40 years ago, she loved it. Easy to remember and knit. just adjust the number of stitches to get the size you want. Now I am making one for my great grand baby.

I learned this pattern as a child. We made strips 29 sts wide. I still have two that my mother made 50 years ago. It is very versatile. Just remember the pattern and pick what yarns and needles are calling to you!

Can this be worked in a lighter weight yarn? I have baby weight yarn that I would like to use instead of using the chunky.

I don't have a little one, but friends who do. However this would make a great lapghan and could be adapted for a larger size. Thank you for the great patterns!!
