Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

it is pretty what I can see . do not understand the pattern , what is in the brackets get copied ? also am I supposed to slide 7 to the right then knit 7 them slide the 7 back and knit?

This seems like a great blanket to knit for a baby shower I have to go to next month. I think the pattern would look nice in white or soft, buttery yellow. But from the comments below, I am a bit confused about the pattern. Has anyone used the instructions given above to make the blanket successfully?

I need help to, thought it met just do row 3 to 8'

I started knitting this lovely blanket when after knitting several rows I noticed that the right side (end), showed a solid knitted 8 rows, and the wrong side showed a pattern side. Upon reading the directions the rows 4, 6, and 8 only stated "repeat row 2"; it should state Row 4 - Repeat row 1, Row 5 - Repeat row 2,. It was necesssary for me to rip out the erroneous knitter rows and start over again with great success. Love this delightful baby blanket -- I recommend you print a corrected version

aroryl 9249791 did you really mean for Row 5 to repeat row 2? or should this be for the row 6. or should row 5, as written be for row 6? I noticed no correction had been made to the pattern as yet.

IS VERY PRETTY BUT I DONT HAVE A COPIES MACHINE DO YOU THINK YOU CANT SEND ME THE PATERS WRITING BY MAIL I WILL BE DELIDE AND I PAID YOU THE POSTAGE I LAIKE VERY MUCHTHE DESIGNE. I NEED MAKE A ABY BLANKET FOR THE CHURCH FOR A BABIE THANKYOU VERY MUCH. SINCERELY YOURS MONIQUE NORMAN.
