"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."

I would like to make this for my grandson as it is similar to one my mother made for my son...but I don't like jumbo yarn and large needles. What would be the equivalent worsted wt yarn needed, and what size needles (10 -- 11 -- 13). Thank you

The stitch counts for this pattern are 14 10, so cast on in groups of 14 stitches, then cast on the 10 stitches for the borders. For a worsted weight yarn I would recommend a size 9/10 5.5/6 mm needles, depending on the yarn and a cast on of 206 stitches. I know this is really late, hope it helps someone, happy knitting.

love the pattern, sad though because Red Heart has discontinued the yarn... happens a lot to me when looking at patterns sigh

Looks like an easy pattern but now sure how thick the yarn is. You can also use other yarn and double it. Also, not sure if 55 stitches are enough. You can also increase the stitches as long as you have enough for the pattern. I prefer to use solid colors for a simple stitch pattern. It defines the stitches better. Should work up quickly and additional throws are always a plus.

I must be missing something about understanding these instructions. I know I knit tightly, so using size 17 needles, I cast on 14 more stitches than the pattern called for. I knitted 3 rows and wasn't even close to 44". Casting on 55 is correct? I am now knitting it with 97 CO stitches. Have to get more yarn and that's disappointing. What did I do wrong?

If you use the exact yarn and exact needles required to create the project and it is not coming out to size you have a gauge issue. I have made this and the 55 stitch cast on is correct.

I've seen jumbo blanket yarn on sale in the store but I've never worked with it, so this project looks interesting. This seems like a nice basket weave pattern that should be easy to make. The super thick yarn should make it very soft and plush too. It would make a nice gift for someone.

Chenille is such a luxurious yarn, and glad to hear from the knitter below it didn't take long to make. I like that it has an easy chart to follow because I have no experience in that.

Not liking the new format, seems to be missing lots of info like what yarn and how much to use. I did go look this one up, so I do have the info now. This blanket took less than 7 hours to make. Thank you.
