i subscribed and tried to save a pattern, instructions said to use "save pattern" button but i can't locate one anywhere. where have u hid it?

Hi indigo, the "Save Pattern" button can be found at the bottom of the written pattern. It's a gray button that says, "+Save" on it. Hope this helps! -Editors of AllFreeKnitting

I started knitting this and in the first row you end up with 16 knitted stitches so it looks off with the other side ending with 8 . Is this correct?

Yes, it is correct. The first and last 8 stitches of each row need to be knitted in order to keep the garter stitch border going up the sides of the blanket. If you keep working the pattern you will see that it works out fine. But yes, it looks odd if you just stop after that row.

Pretty afghan, I might change the color scheme to more sea -like colors but in bulky yarn this will be a quick knit with dramatic results


Just copy and paste the text into a document for you to print.

The easiest way to print anything is to 1) make sure that you have Adobe Reader and 2) google then download CutePDF. When you find a page or pattern that you want to print just click the printer icon down arrow in the Command Bar of Internet Explorer, then change your printer to CutePDF, select print then a window pops up that asks you to save it. Name the document hit save. Now you have a copy of the document you wanted to print. This saves time paper or if you really must have a paper version, go to where you saved the CutePDF print the document. Another way to "get a copy of something" is to use the Snipping Tool (search for it on your computer) drag a box around what you want to copy then place it in Word or NotePad, then print or save it.
