"Hi, I can't find the knitting pattern for this book, can I have it please?"
"With the page open, right click on your mouse, this will open a new window, in the new window scroll down to and click on print. That will take you to print review, in print preview change "all" to just the pages that the pattern is on and click print. Using the cut and copy feature to paste the document into another program for printing is actually a violation of international copyright laws, but printing directly from the page is permitted. Hope this helps someone. Happy knitting!"

Hi Knitters, The list of crochet abbreviations is listed because there is an optional crochet border along the afghan. Unfortunately Red Heart does not provide a diagram of this blanket. Hope this helps, -Editors of AllFreeKnitting

skp is indeed slip, knit pass and the list of terms is also incorrect, they are all crochet-not sure why they are there. The pattern itself at first glance does appear easy enough, but upon closer inspection actually doesn't make any sense to me at all, there really should be a construction diagram or something else visually to help people understand how all this is going together-i shall look around on the internet and see if there is better info there because as this is written and looking at the picture, I just can't visualize it.

SKP (Slip,Knit Pass?) does not appear on the list of terms which is for crocheting not knitting.
