I can't wait to try this. I have two grandsons who want blankets with 'twisty things' (cables) for Christmas and I have had a hard time finding just the right pattern to be done in a solid color. I will post pictures when done!

What does it look like? there's no picture here.

Hello ridiculosity 67303 43, the photo for this pattern has been updated. Our apologies for the inconvenience! -Editors of AllFreeKnitting

How would I go about making this bigger? Both width wise and length wise?

Hi brittwall29, increasing the length on this throw is not too hard, but you are limited by the pattern. You have to make sure you are ending on a 4th row of the Lace Panel Pattern so you can follow the remaining instructions for finishing it. Making it wider involves adding more of the pattern, which means calculating stitch counts etc. Sorry, that's beyond my ability to do.

To enlarge this patten width wise cast on additional stitches in groups of 29 stitches, to make it longer simply work the pattern rows from where the pattern instructs you to be at 54 1/2 " work until desired length, but ensure you finish your length at the same place as instructed in the pattern to do so.

Sorry, I messed up the math there, the cast on should be in groups of 31 sts not 29, as I previously said.

I have done row 1, 5 times and I always end up with 14 sts, not the 13 sts. help. I can't rate as I haven't finished it.

Try the pattern with some other yarn first. Cast on 44 stitches and practise!!!! You won't be able to do the repeats, but it'll help you get the rhythm. Double check EVERY SINGLE STITCH you make while following the pattern. When you do the actual blanket, each row repeats the pattern between the asterisks 6 times and then you end with 13 stitches. For row #1 specifically, here's the breakdown P2 2 stitches K1. yo. K1. K2tog. P1. Sl1. K1. psso. K1. yo. K1 9 stitches (11 total) (P2. K2tog. yo. P2. yo. Sl1. K1. psso) twice 8 stitches x 2 (27 total) P2. K2tog. yo 4 stitches (31 total) 31 stitches x 6 times = 186 total Then adding the 13 at the end brings you to 199 stitches, which is what you should have. For this blanket, I HIGHLY suggest getting stitch markers and marking off 31 stitches EVERY ROW to ensure you are maintaining the right number. It was a nightmare for me to start this project because I kept messing up. But I've gotten it down and am at 15 inches with it. Hope this was helpful.

Are you 100% sure you have 199 stitches? Here's the breakdown for row #1 P2 = 2 stitches K1. yo. K1. K2tog. P1. Sl1. K1. psso. K1. yo. K1. = 9 stitches (11 total) (P2. K2tog. yo. P2. yo. Sl1. K1. psso) twice. = 8 stitches x 2 (27 total) P2. K2tog. yo.= 4 stitches (31 total) Now you repeat this 6 times (this happens for every row when you repeat the stitch patterns between the asterisks). So 31 stitches x 6 = 186 stitches. Then with 13 left over, you have 199. I HIGHLY SUGGEST getting stitch markers and marking every 31 stitches and making sure you have 13 left over for EVERY ROW. It's annoying to count but worth it if you don't want to accidentally end up with the wrong amount. I had to restart several times too but once I got the rhythm of it and the markers, it really helped. I'm now at 16 inches with this blanket. Good luck.

The break down of the row is 199 sts on the needles, 199 - 13 = 186, 186 divided by 31 = 6 which means the pattern repeat is 31 stitches total, after subtracting the 13 stitches that should be left at the end of that row when you've completed the instructions.

I have knitted for over 50 years and have ripped this 4 times the count just doesn't come out right for me. I am starting it over again but I will add 12 stitches,6 for each side in the garter stitch as I do want to pick up over 200 stitches for the side trim. I can't rate this pattern now as I haven't knitted it yet.

I am making progress with this and it is looking beautiful in a vibrant shade of red. I'll share a photo of the finished product. I am so happy that I stuck with it. The Bernat design team was awesome for helping. Fellow knitters; jump in & give it a try!!

Wow, people are making this a lot more difficult than it is and the same silly question over and over again is really confusing the new knitters. You are following a ten row lace pattern while following a 4 row base pattern so: Row 1 & row 1, row 2 & row 2, row 3 & row 3, row 4 & row 4, row 1 & row 5 Row 2 & row 6 row 3 & row 7 row 4 & row 8, row 1 & row 9 row 2 & row 10 Hope this helps somebody.

Thanks for your comment. While it may seem like a silly question to you, many fellow knitters had a legitimate question and were only looking for some guidance. Have a heart for us out there who do need some help, including novice and experienced knitters.

Hi Knitters, AllFreeKnitting does not own this pattern. If you are having problems, we suggest contacting the Bernat design team on their website. Thanks! -Editors of AllFreeKnitting

I'm not 100% sure this is correct. Has anyone the answer? On row 5, do I knit as row !, but replace the lace pattern with the row 5 sequence? It seems that is what would follow the patter with row 2 and alt rows being every other row, then roe 6 would be the same as row 2, row 7 knitted as row 3, then work row 7 in the lace pattern, instead of 3rd row, etc... is this correct?? Help! I'm pretty new, but this seems vague. The only thing leading me to believe this is where it says 'cont in pattern until approx 54 1/2 inches.

Thanks to the Bernat Design Team, here is their reply. "Yes, you work rows 1-4 and at the same time you work the appropriate row of the lace panel, so on Row 5 you are working Row 1 of the main pattern, fitting in row 5 of the lace panel over 9 stitches where it says to work 1st row of lace panel. When you have worked all 10 rows of lace panel then you start over again at Row 1 of Lace Panel. It is a bit confusing but most of our patterns are written in a similar way" Hope this helps everyone. Good luck and I will try this again!!

I am also confused as to what to do after row 4. When you work row 5 (I assume a repeat of row 1), what row of the lace panel do you use? Sorry but this is stressing me out

I am also confused about rows 5-10 of lace panel. Could you please clarify. Thanks so much, this looks like a really nice throw.

Did you ever receive a reply to your concerns

Any suggestions to the rest of us that are still confused, ha!

If I were making this, I would cast on 12 extra stitches and do a 6 stitch garter stitch edge on the sides, instead of doing the "pick up 226 stitches on the side edge and knit 6 rows" thing. I hate picking up stitches!

Yes I agree. Also can anyone tell me about the Sl1? Is it slip 1? Any other pattern I've used just says S1 for slip one so I have no idea what Sl1 is.

Thank you I too don't want to pick up stitches , I just start it so I will rip it out and start over with 12 extra stitches. I don't know why they do that , it's just a pain.

Please ladies READ your patterns...Line by line. Row 2 says "row 2 and atlernate rows..being 2,4,6,8, etc. I am guilty of doing the same thing, but after years of knitting I have learned that pattern writers have a habit of doing this. It would be better to say " and all even # rows or uneven # rows. Happy knitting.

Hi, I've read and reread, but being a novice, not sure if I'm understanding completely. After the first 4 rows are knitted, would row 5 be knitted as row one, but in the 'work lace panel' I would use row 5 instead of 'work 1st row of lace panel?' This row 6 would be knitted just as row 2? Row 7 would be knitted as row 3, but use 7th row in the 'work lace pattern?'...etc... Help would be much appreciated! Thank you!!

I need help after Row4, where to use Row 5-10, and where is Row 6? Please let me know, I realy Like this Pattern.

I am pretty new to knitting, but was excited to see this was marked as easy, but I am lost....After 4th row....do you go up to lace pattern 5th row - 10th and work those stitches across, and then start back to 1st row? Thank you for your help.

How many are you to cast on?

The pattern very clearly states that you cast on 180 sts. You really should read the WHOLE pattern before you start.
