"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."

Another great throw project and free pattern from Bernat yarns. This particular throw is made with super bulky weight yarn which means that it will work up pretty quickly plus be extra warm. A great item to have whenever you need a little extra warmth on a cold evening inside or outside.

Love the woven-look design in this throw that looks similar to a picnic basket weave. A great beginner project that is knitted on circular needles. Bernat Mega Bulky yarn is a super bulky yarn that is ideal for creating luxuriously thick accessories and home dcor projects with a stylish textured-stitch look.

this looks like such a nice beginner blanket, and cozy for winter! I've been wanting to knit a blanket lately and this one looks so nice!

I think this blanket would be a great one to make. With the super bulky/super chunky yarn and big needles it would work up quickly. The pattern is not too complicated, which I like because after I put it down I can just pick it up next time without trying to figure out where I was in the pattern. I think it would look nice in almost any solid color.

This is a very pretty blanket, a simple knit and a very nice size. The super bulky yarn will make the work go quickly. I think knitting this out of a self striping yarn would be quite beautiful.
