what wool is it please?is it chunky?

Pretty pattern with a lot of nice texture. I would be easy to size this blanket up, just remember to cast on multiples of four stitches plus one to create the pattern. For example you could cast on 201 stitches to make the blanket about 10 inches wider.

My mistake, it should be cast on multiples of four stitches plus three so 203 stitches would make the blanket 10" wider

This would be a great pattern for "stash busting"! It would be very simple to alternate yarn colors for narrow stripes. Great way to use up leftover yarns from other projects. It could also be easily adapted for sport weight or bulky yarn - just increase or decrease the number of stitches accordingly.

A great baby blanket to wrap the young one in when at the park or snuggling on the couch! Love the interesting name of the pattern - Mistake Stitch Pattern and how the one row is repeated for the entire blanket! Seems very simple - it should be a breeze to make!

This is my kind of pattern; nice and simple, can easily multi task.

The instructions say Knit2 Purl2.....but the blanket looks like Knit1, Purl1. Which is it?

Kinda cool... its supposed to look like that. Like you made a mistake but you did not and that is why its called the "mistake rib" Multiple 4 stitches plus 3 Row 1 K2, P2 repeat from to last 3 stitches, K2, P1. I love this pattern. I've used it a lot. Mostly for scarves.
