Why isn't's this pattern working for me. The second row I need 18 stitches for the pattern and we drop 3stitches in pattern, but we only add 2 stitches.

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 started my afghan and I am enjoying knitting it , I am using size 4mm needles and 8ply wool and very happy, coming very nice it will be a while to finish as I do not have much spare time but sure is relaxing once you know the pattern. thanks once again

I love this pattern just what I been waiting to come across I just tryed the pattern and I found it very easy very plesant to knit thankyou so much

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

The repeat is 15 stitches. hope this helps someone.

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!!

What does psso mean?

It means to pass the slipped stitch over.

Pass slipped stitch over (you slipped a stitch, then knit 2 together - & so you pass the slipped stitch back over the 2 that you knitted together) :)
