"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."

It can be hard to stay cozy in the house in the summer. Without a blanket and all that air conditioning, you're freezing. A heavy blanket will be too hot. This Delicate Diamonds Throw is the perfect summer afghan. We love the lacy diamond pattern in this piece that you don't normally see in knitted throw patterns. This knit afghan would be perfect to keep on your lap as you work at the computer or to drape along the side of the couch for when you start to shiver in the living room.

Throw is worked back and forth in rows on circular needles, do not join.
Tips and Hints:
Join a new ball of yarn when there are approximately 6” [15 cm] of yarn left from the old ball, also leaving a 6” [15 cm] tail of yarn with the joined yarn. Weave these ends in neatly on the wrong side of the fabric in a zig-zag pattern for a few inches, and then trim off excess.

This is a pretty throw pattern. It looks fabulous in the eggshell color in the picture but I'm sure it would look great in almost any solid color like aqua or sage green. It would make a beautiful gift and you could make it match someone's decor. No pricey specialty yarns to buy for it, either.

Just got to Row 24 and found the mistake. It was so nice to know I could log back on here and get help from other knitters. I so appreciate the support this site has and the constant supply of new, free patterns. Thanks everyone!

Yes, they did leave out Row 24 in the written instructions. Fortunately, it is included in the lace pattern. You can interpret Row 24 from this diagram as follows Row 24 K3, P11, K3, P11, K3 I also love this pattern and prefer to work from written instructions rather than charts.

same question as below-shouldn't there be 24pattern rows since odd number rows are both right side and row 1 cannot follow row 23. would love an answer ASAP - want to make this as a gift - deadline looming!! Thanks so much! rating based on obvious error in pattern - with correction, would give 5 stars.

I went to Red Heart web site and found the pattern, LW3740. Row 24 is on page 2.

Shouldn't there be 24 rows to the pattern since rows 1 and 23 are both right side rows?
