"This is the 8th or 9th dead link I've hit this morning trying to look at the patterns from one newsletter, i can only presume that the person putting the newsletter together does not have time to check and verify the links."
"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."

I am about 6 inches in to this and have a question. Rows 2 4 which are WS, instruct to K3 at begin. and end of row w/ purl stitches in between. But according to the KEY/Chart, it states to Purl on RS row. Knit on WS rows. Yet row 2 and 4 are always WS. Is this an error or am I doing something wrong? Please help!

Reading the pattern then looking at the chart leads me to believe that the chart is wrong... follow the directions and ignore the chart and you'll be right I always forget the charts until too late and seem to come out all right
Aug 15, 2016
The chart is correct as written, I suspect you may be reading it incorrectly, the written instructions and the charted instructions match. Right side rows are read from right to left and the bottom up, wrong side rows are read from left to right, also bottom up. Hope this helps someone.

Can you tell me if the cast on stitches numbering 87 is maintained after each row. I am now working with 85 stitches. Although I have mastered the stitches correctly, I have yet to see the pattern that is on the photo. I can not figure out what I am doing wrong! Please help!
Oct 04, 2015
yes, the original 87 stitches are maintained throughout the pattern. For every decrease in the pattern there is a yo to compensate for the lost stitch, if you are down stitches I would double check your yo's, that's where I usually lose my stitch count.

Would be nice to be able to print pattern.

Hey there, sharonpenney! You should be able to print the pattern by clicking the "print" button just a bit below the name of the pattern. If you're still having trouble after that, try copying the pattern and pasting it into a Word document, and printing it from there. I hope that helps! Happy knitting!

I think I am going to knit it for a dear friend, cancer suivivor and about to give birth to her second son!

This is a fantastic pattern. I love working on busy patterns as long as they aren't too complicated. This would make a fabulous prayer shawl as lonf as one for a cancer survivor.
