I made this for a friend. She is very happy with it. I made a smaller solid one for a chair, and solid with variegated for a full size for her love seat.

This is a pretty textured afghan pattern. I see in previous posts there has been some confusion about the pattern and stitch counts, but it should work out fine, since Row 3 in the pattern has 4 decreases balanced out by 4 yarn overs. Just be careful not to lose (drop) the yarn overs when you purl the next row and you should be good.

Hi, I am trying to knit this Tapioca Pudding Afghan. But I am having problems. Row 3 is confusing to me and how someone can help. I started with 211 stitches, did row 3 and row 4, now I have to repeat 3 & 4. I don't have enough stitches to complete row 3. I think the yo, (k1, yo) 3 times I'm not doing correctly. I am yo k1, yo k1, yo k1. 3 times. Is this wrong. Should I be doing it differently? I hope someone can help me. Thanks much.

If I read what you are doing correctly-there is a little confusion-the K1,yo 3x has a yo in front of it-so there should be 4yo's and 3 k1-the other suggestion I have is make sure that you are counting the yo's as new stitches in your counts as well-I know when I was a new knitter I frequently messed that up-I made many triangle shaped scarves!

I am actually in the process of trying to knit this pattern and am struggling quite a bit. In order for the pattern to end with a K stitch in R3, there needs to be a starting number of 212 stitches instead of 211. As I'm looking at the pattern, I noticed the pattern is continuously shrinking in size (with the repeats of R3). Is there a row to offset the decreasing to keep the afghan in a rectangular shape (the image provided shows it should be rectangular in shape when finish) rather than triangular? Is R4 suppose to have stitches added on or increased? Please help. My rating is low due to the possible pattern discrepancies. The pattern itself looks amazing. I just wish to be to make it.

It should not be getting any smaller, the stitch count is consistent. There are 2-k2tog and 2 ssk's in row 3, to compensate for being down 4 stitches there are a total of 4 yo's in the same row, the yo is the new stitch for the next row. As far as the starting number it is correct, 211-2 =209 11= 19. The stitch count is 11, so after you subtract your K1 at the beginning and end, the 11 stitch count works out to be 19. Hope this helps someone.

I believe there may be a yarn amount discrepancy. If you buy 3 skeins of the Jumbo that means you have 14 oz per skein, and it takes 3 skeins, which means there is a total of 42 ounces. If you buy the 3 oz size skeins you would need 14 of them and not the (6) skeins as indicated, which only gives you a total of 18 oz. Please advise if I am correct as I feel whoever wants to make this would be very disappointed not to come up with the right amount of yarn to make this. Thank you.

The super saver size that is being referred to is a 7 ounce skein. Six of these would give you the right amount. You are correct about it taking 14 - 3 ounce skeins.

For all your patterns: pretty model, good photography, very difficult to see the patterned object. Either the cowl is scrunched up around the neck or the model is sitting on the afghan and you see more of her than the afghan.
