"New pattern, first time I've seen a picture of it on this site. Unfortunately, there is a problem with the link, when you click on it you receive an "oops" message, that the pattern is no longer available."
"Not sure why you would leave your comment on an entirely different pattern but anyway, the pattern actually specifies and gives step by step instructions on what the chain 5 is- (Bring st back to left-hand needle. K1) 5 times Chain 5 made. Bring st back to left-hand needle. K4tog. Rep from to last 2 (3-1) st(s). Chain 5. Bring st back to left-hand needle. K3 (4-2) tog. Fasten off."

Be reminded of late night barbecues and hours spent on the backyard patio with this adorable Summer Fence Baby Blanket. The fence-like, linked cable pattern will bring back fun summer memories, while keeping Baby protected from the breeze. The bold texture of this free knit afghan pattern makes it as much of a decoration, as it is a practical essential for the nursery.

What does "Do not join in rnd." mean? I don't quite understand the initial instructions.
Jun 15, 2018
Do not join in the round means exactly that. The pattern is instructing you that even though it uses circular needles, it is knit flat, do not join to make a circle.

This is such a lovely pattern that everyone will want a full-size version to use for an afghan. Please add instructions for an adult-size afghan for those of us you can't figure out how to adap it. It really is that great a pattern.

This is a wonderful pattern. Worked out well for me. I made this blanket with 4 skeins of Lion Brand Homespun Yarn (Bulky) which looks exactly as I expected!

I asked about adapting this to worsted weight, probably on size 8 US needles. Could I just cast on 14 more sticthes (since the pattern repeat is 14) and add another repeat of the pattern between the asterisks? I would also like to use this pattern in a center panel on a sweater to coordinate with the blanket. Could I just use the pattern between the asterisks plus 2 purls on either side?

I would like to make this in worsted weight/Aran yarn. How can I adapt it?

Someone just posted today on Knitting Paradise that they made this blanket using Bernat Softee Baby yarn, using 2 strands of yarn. It turned out just beautiful. They also posted a photo, if you'd like to check it out. http//www.knittingparadise.com/t-331651-1.html

I'd like to make this in a sport weight yarn. Is there an easy conversion to get to the right number of stitches to maintain the pattern and the size of the blanket? Thanks!
Mar 05, 2013
I HAVEN'T USED THIS PATTERN BUT i HAVE USED BERNAT KNITTING THREAD AND LIKE IT VERY MUCH.

I'm fairly new to the blanket world beyond an easy pattern. :) I'm trying new things, and want to learn this greatly. Can someone tell me, once I've mastered this size, how to increase the size to more of an adult throw size? Can I just double the amount of stitches and rows?
Jul 25, 2014
Not necessarily-you need to determine the amount of stitches in the pattern repeat and factor in the gauge to determine how many stitches to increase. for this one, the pattern repeat is 14 stitches and the gauge is 15 sts and 20 rows to 4". so the pattern as written gives you a finished measurement of 36"x38"-so you must determine how much wider and longer you want the afghan to be-adding 15 stitches to the width will give you an additional 4" and adding 20 rows will give you an additional 4" in length.

I would like to print this pattern but cannot find a print option. Please help!

Move cursor over "P" at end of sharing icons. A list will pop up - including "print".
Mar 30, 2013
You could copy and paste into a Word document and print from there. That's what I normally do to eliminate the ads and print only what I really want.

I need help with the pattern. There is no row 16. And my grandson is due soon. Please help???
Jun 08, 2012
Hello! Row 16 is considered an "alternate row" so you would follow this portion of the pattern: 2nd and alt rows: K5. Purl to last 5 sts. K5. Hope this helps, and happy knitting!
Jun 26, 2012
Thanks so much!! I should have seen that. It is very clear.

This afghan looks beautiful. I, tool, would like to know how to calculate increases.

I love the look of this pattern. I make baby blankets for any one in the neighborhood or church that is expecting, so I am always looking for new ideas. I can't wait to start on this one.
May 26, 2012
