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

This will work on fine yarn as well as chunky yarn. A crochet eding may just soften it for a new born baby.

When I clicked on the link for the blanket I had to down load a file to print off the pattern, that link for the blanket is miss leading.........................

If you had to download a program to print the file, then the programs on your computer are not up to date-every o/s requires you to upload/updates on a fairly regular basis-it can hardly be this website's fault that you aren't looking after your computer.

Where does the pattern say anything about a seed stitch border?

The pattern does not specifically reference a seed stitch border, but the K1, P1 at the beginning of each row will create a seed stitch border. Hope this helps.

Sweet lttle afghan! I found more pictures on page two. Isn't it a shame some people have to be so negative? Thanks to other, more kind, commenters for pointing out the error for rows 2-7. I'm a beginner knitter and probably wouldn't have realized until it was too late. Thank you for this pattern. I love it.

Thank you for helping with the info to make a larger blanket. I absolutely love this site, and greatly appreciate all the sharing and caring help for everyone.

i can crochet but not knit,can someone in knit land teach over the computer?

Go to You Tube. Lots of good video tutorials there.

I also would like someone who knows how to give the directions for full size afghan. Thanking you in advance.

Pattern repeat is a mult of 6 + 11. Cast on 11 stitches, then add groups of 6 more until you get the width you want. Continue knitting knitting rows until you get to the length you want. To make an afghan about 48 x 60 you will need about 2 1/2 times the amount of yarn or roughly 2,100 yards.

I would love to get the pattern but when I try to download I get taken to "download this program, add this tool bar, see this add etc." Can I just get the pattern???

I would also like just the pattern and not have a tool bar added. Is there any way or someone to help us on this?

Click on the link to get the pattern, and in green (on my screen at least) in small type/font, there are two lines. One says: 1, get started. The other says: 2, pattern or directions... I can't remember which. But if you click on these two places, you'll get all the info to make the blanket. Good luck!

You definitely do not have to download anything! If you scroll down a little, you will see the first part of the "Patteren" that tells you the materials you need, finished size, gauge, and stitches used. There is a big purple arrow at the bottom right that says "Next Step" - it takes you to the next page which is the actual pattern. The easiest thing to do is highlight the info you want from the first page and copy/paste it into a document in your word processer, then go to the next page and copy/paste the pattern itself into the same document. It is so simple after a few times the steps come automatically. I usually do this even with patterns that are simpler to print because I can save them and come back to them later. Including the title of the pattern, and at least one picture helps for later reference later. When you do the copy/paste, make sure to include the authors name and any photo credits!

What is the pattern repeat that I would use to make it larger? I would like it for a standard sized afghan. It is a pretty pattern, but I am not an experienced knitter, yet, and don't know how to calculate this.

Looks like the pattern repeat is a mult of 6 + 11. In this case she cast on (6 x 17) + 11 for a total of 113. Cast on 11 stitches then add additional stitches in groups of 6 until you have the approximate width you want.

Lousy picture. Would be nice I'd designers presented a good pic. Who cares abt a teddy bear dominating the pic, not to mention the banner. Yes...rows 2-7 should state to keep the border in seed st. Typical of patterns written but not tested by a real knitter...so common these days.

@mimi25...I think the people who make up the patterns are "real" knitters. Every one makes typos and they need to be proofed as everything written should be however there is no excuse for being so nasty...as is so common these days.

You are using someone elses free pattern. Please be more considerate of the time and effort it takes to create a pattern. Typos and mistakes do happen, they are accidents. Nasty is not an accident!

I think there is a typo error in the 2-7 rows. It simply states K. There is clearly a seed/moss stitch border in the picture. What do you think. Love the pictures

I'm a new knitter, what is a seed/moss stitch?

This is cute but I'm clicking on the Grassy Meadows Afghan and keep getting this baby blanket.

I think the baby blanket is the grassy meadows afghan
