"This is the 8th or 9th dead link I've hit this morning trying to look at the patterns from one newsletter, i can only presume that the person putting the newsletter together does not have time to check and verify the links."
"New pattern, first time I've seen a picture of it on this site. Unfortunately, there is a problem with the link, when you click on it you receive an "oops" message, that the pattern is no longer available."
"Not sure why you would leave your comment on an entirely different pattern but anyway, the pattern actually specifies and gives step by step instructions on what the chain 5 is- (Bring st back to left-hand needle. K1) 5 times Chain 5 made. Bring st back to left-hand needle. K4tog. Rep from to last 2 (3-1) st(s). Chain 5. Bring st back to left-hand needle. K3 (4-2) tog. Fasten off."

Is the M1 a M1Left or M1Right?
Nov 12, 2019
Hi drevad01, since the instructions tell you to knit through the back of the loop, we can reasonably assume that the M1 is a M1L. We hope this helps! Happy knitting! -Editors of AllFreeKnitting

This is a very pretty tree skirt. It's more elegant than most I have seen. Most have Christmas designs. Thus would look great in my friends living room. She always does an elegant vintage christmas theme. Thus would be perfect t. Maybe with some gold trim to add a little extra touch.

I am not familiar with this type of yarn, but this looks like it would be a rather loose knit, even with heavier yarn. I think that a size 15 needle is fairly big for one strand. The worst thing about it is that it's too pretty to cover up with gifts!

The Grande yarn is a #7 jumbo yarn, it's like knitting with rope, it's a 50 row pattern, I finished it in one day. You wouldn't want to go to a smaller needle with the grande yarn, it would be too tight.

Red heart grande is most definitely not a 4 weight yarn its a 6 and could be classified as being bigger than that, I was many of the old style balls, I will try this and see how it works out.
