I am trying to figure out what is the primary color on this , as the only ones I see listed are B, C & D. It says how much yarn you need for it but not the color. Could you help me please?

Hi there - According to the materials list, you will need - 964 Primary, 320 Cornmeal, 624 Tea Leaf and 378 Claret (all Red Heart Super Saver). Thanks!

I love this pattern and its design. I plan to make several more Catherine's Wheel Afghans.....If you are new to this pattern or new to crocheting, I suggest that you go on YouTube and watch the tutorials by Crochet Crowd and/or Crochet Geek. You will find them very helpful in walking you through understanding how to do this pattern!

Without breaking out the yarn and diving in, I think there's an error... on round 5 where it says color B, I think it should be color C. You are repeating 'motifs', one for a corner/turn and one or more per 'side' for filling in in-between those corners. Picture shows the multi (primary or A) as the center, first round of rows, B or cornmeal, then second round of rows the green (color C) then next row is claret (color D). Work center (4 corners only with turning) in A [rnd 1-2], next row, corners with 1 motif between in B [rnd 3-4], next row corners with 2 motifs between in C [rnd 5-6], and when it calls for 'continue in same manner' and moving to D, you work the corners with 3 motif repeats between for next row. Then start over with A, and add one more motif repeat between the corners until you have made enough rows and the afghan is the size you want... and it says 'last row in A color', then proceed with the border instructions. :) If it doesn't make sense, then contact the designer.

Very astute! If you go to the pattern on the Red Heart site, that error has been corrected. http://www.redheart.com/files/patterns/pdf/LW2058 == .pdf

Great catch! The pattern has been updated. - Julia from FaveCrafts

I really want to try this pattern out. But have something I'm working on right now. But think this will be my next project.

@toothfairybones 4633416, We suggest you try contacting the pattern designer directly for help. The designer is specified in the byline. You could also try posting your question on our sister site, AllFreeCrochet's, Facebook page; perhaps a fellow crocheter can assist: http://www.facebook.com/AllFreeCrochet --Editor of FaveCrafts

Hi Love this pattern, but I need a little help. I am fairly new at crocheting and sometimes cannot understand certain things. I have crocheted thru round 6. Then the instructions say "continue in this manner to work 2 rounds of colors D, then repeat color sequence .... What does Contnue in this manner mean? Do I repeat rounds 5 and 6. I have tried and it just does not seem to be working out. Can you help? Thank you
