"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."

Knitting a blanket that is comfy, warm and beautiful is easy with this big cables throw pattern. This easy knit blanket made with circular knitting needles and jumbo weight yarn is perfect for cuddling up next to the fireplace with a cup of hot chocolate during the colder months. The cables make the blanket look so cozy and, even though this is a quick project, as if you spent many months putting it together. This would be a great idea if you are looking for homemade holiday gifts. Your friends and family will be so thankful to you on cold winter nights.

This is a beautiful throw. However, a lot of throw and blanket patterns like this one use thick blanket yarn, in this case Red Heart Grande which is a jumbo weight yarn. Because it's thick and you're making a big thing you need a lot of yarn. This pattern calls for 15 balls/skeins, which puts it outside of something that I could afford.

This pattern does not require " a lot of Yarn", it's only 690 yards, it's a lot of skeins because that yarn is only 46 yards per skein, I'm certain you could find a much more cost effective substitute, I made one with Sweet snuggles yarn that I got in an 12 pack at Michael's, it's more than double the yardage on each skein and I was able to use a coupon to purchase the 12 pack, further reducing the cost.

I do not understand what the directions mean for cable where it says read from left to right and right to left. I don't know what the ratingshould be as I haven't made the item

Hi deomeara 6348064, those instructions apply if you're using a chart to complete the cable portion of the pattern. The cable pattern can also be worked using the written instructions provided. Hope this helps! -Editors of AllFreeKnitting

This pattern is marked easy. I think it is a great starter project don't be intimidated by the cables they are fairly easy to do and striking in this pattern. I would practice the cables on some scrap yarn first but I think you totally should make this project even as a new knitter.
