"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."

How do I get the right amount of stitches to make this wider? I want to make a Blanket for a Bed.
Aug 16, 2021
The stitch count for this pattern is 11 stitches, to make it bigger increase in groups of 11 stitches.

I cut the pattern down to 49 stitches on a size 10 mm needle and made a baby blanket out of it, with 1 and a quarter skeins of this yarn. Everyone loves it and I have requests for several more.
Jan 23, 2019
Please tell me the number of multiple stitches across for pattern. I'd like to make this smaller and have to know how to figure out how many stitches I can eliminate. thank you
Jan 26, 2019
The stitch count for this pattern is 11.

If 6 balls makes 59" how many balls to make this longer. 16 or 32 rows = how many inches? Thanks
Jun 17, 2018
Your question does not make sense, the pattern requires 4 balls. Based on the 59' finished length, that means 1 ball does approximately 15". If you add 2 more balls you will be adding approximately 30" to the total length.

This pattern is right up my alley. Once you've knit the first sixteen rows, you can see how the pattern is working and it is so easy to continue on from there. I like simplistic patterns that look complicated when finished and this is one of those. I can't wait to get it finished.

Anybody know how this pattern would work out on straight needles? I dont own any circular needles this big.
Feb 28, 2017
Hi Honeybuns, the pattern will work out fine on straight needles, since it is basically knit flat (back and forth) on the circular needle. The circular needle helps with the size and weight of the afghan while you are working, but if you have long straights (like 19" or so) you can manage it.

This is a lovely pattern that will look great in any color you choose tor your decor. I think it looks way harder than it will be to make. Adding another 16 rows will cover the tallest in your family. Enjoy!

I love this color, but I wish I could see the pattern better in the picture. Still, from the printed pattern it looks quite easy and will work up quickly with chunky yarn.

You can see it better at Bernat's site. Just click on the magnifying symbol at their page for this afghan http//www.yarnspirations.com/patterns/angled-eyele == ts-blanket.html?id=198310

That link didn't work. I'm trying again http//www.yarnspirations.com/patterns/angled-eyele == ts-blanket.html?id=198310

I added this pattern to my next winter's knits because it is so simple and I can easily work on it while sitting at the computer or watching TV. The big yarn and big needles will make the work go quickly. Its a perfect size for snuggling on the couch or folding at the end of the bed.

I really like the looks of this pattern. quanahs 5032097 I'm glad to hear that it's simple too! I've never done a pattern with a design in it for an afghan before. I've been wanting to work with some of the chunkier yarns too. It'll be a new challenge for me in those regards! Now I just need to figure out what color of yarn to use as soon as I decide where I want to use it!
