when doing the stripes would you need to cut the yarn each time for color changes?

Hi babyers, we imagine you could carry the contrasting colors up the side of the blanket since the stripe pattern is worked over even numbers of rows, but you could also cut the yarn each time the color changes if that works best for you. We hope this helps! -Editors of AllFreeKnitting

Yes, you will cut the yarn for each color change, because of the way the border is being knit on after you complete the pattern carrying the yarn up the side with 3 different colours is not an option here.

This is a nice pattern. However, I personally find it tedious to have to pick up 271 stitches along the side and knit a border - twice! It would have been easier to work the garter stitch edging up both sides as you went along, as many other patterns do. Just my 2 cents.

I don't disagree with you about it being easier to knit the border in, but in this case it will just look like the rest of the blanket. Picking up the stitches after and knitting them from the edges out makes the border knitting run the opposite way to the blanket and adds some dimension to a blanket that could be characterized as "plain".

What does WS and RS mean in the this pattern?

WS(Wrong Side: wrong side being the side not be displayed) RS(right Side: being the side you see)

What does WS and RS mean in the this pattern?

Wrong Side and Right side
