The Blackberry pattern stitch on this afghan seems to be lace with small bobbles, which creates a very pretty effect. I like that the throw is knit in one piece without having to seam strips together like in some patterns. For the finishing and the shell trim all around the throw you'll need to have some crochet skills.

Where is the pattern--cannot locate

I would like Cedar Falls Throw but when I click on it, pictures of afghans come up but not the one I chose...help!!

I am puzzled; I click on the link to the pattern of the project I want to make and up comes an entirely different website. Can anyone help? The pattern I want is to the Cedar Falls Throw on http://www.allfreeknitting.com/Knit-Cable-Afghans/Cedar-falls-throw/ct/1. Please help! Thank you.

I rethought the row count for that extra wrong side row, because the end of the afghan should be on row 24 (having done all repeats). It should be a row 9, which works out the same as "25" because it is done the same way (p3, k2, p3 for cable, and row 1 blackberry), and you will end on row 24 just before bind off.

There is a slight error on the row count I noted. I am in the process of making this great afghan, and noticed that you must knit a "wrong" side row AFTER row 24 in order to keep in pattern, as it is obvious you cannot start row 10 on the wrong side. I think you can note it as row "25" and just continue the same as odd rows 17-23 in cable stitch and row 1 in Blackberry stitch for it to come out all right. I am about a third of the way through doing this, and it looks great!

I absolutely LOVE.LOVE.LOVE this website!!! THANK YOU!!!
