I really like the raised diamonds pattern in this afghan. I see in some earlier posts there were questions about the pattern but as far as I can tell it seems right - all the decreases are balanced by increases. Also, the border is in rib stitch, not seed stitch.

In looking at the picture of the afghan, it looks as if the border is done in a modified rib stitch, but instructions says to do a seed stitch. Mine looks nothing like the picture.

I too cannot get the pattern to work. The number of stitches does not work out with the stitches listed. Has there been any corrections to this pattern noted?

Just wondering if anyone can actually get this pattern to work. The blocking seems way off each time I've attempted it, as you cast on an odd number of stitches, but the way the pattern is laid out, each row ends with an even number. Is there something I'm missing?

some questions about the afhgan..the instructions given, are they repeated till the end? the instructions start with row 1 and end with row the rest the repeat of 1-16 depending on how long you want it? Also, I love the color shown..will any craft store selling knitting wool carry it and I'm guessing its called oatmeal, Or where can I find this wool and is it knitted with one strand of wool or two? And what do you mean by wool with the highest degree of crimp?

I just added a frequently-answered-questions to the top of the page. What an M1 is, how you do an ssk. As for how much yarn: that is as individual as the knitter. Gauge varies. Size wanted varies. Thickness of yarn varies. For mine, I wanted the thing big: my husband is 6'8" and my mom taught me one should always knit an afghan big enough to cover the feet and go on up to the chin. And so my Embossed Diamonds afghan came out to be nearly three pounds of yarn. Had I knit it looser, though, I would have needed fewer repeats to get the same size, and it would have been lighter, and... So you swatch. You measure. You multiply. And then, if size matters, you buy a little extra just to make sure you don't run shy of what you're aiming for. Have fun with it!

Hi gcsddep411 9334714, I would contact the blogger with your question. Leave a comment on the pattern or send them an e-mail. Thanks.

How much yarn does this afgan take? It's not listed anywhere.

How many oz of yarn to make this pattern. I can't find it anywhere in the insturction.
