Bonjour! J'aimerais savoir s'il y a quelqu'un qui aurait traduit ce patron en franais Merci! Bonne journe!

I agree there are 26 sc per side and instructions use only 24 sc

I thought this would be a fast and easy Christmas gift; however, there were some errors in the pattern directions. The color called for to border the small squares is Aran - in the picture it is Hunter Green. The instruction for the border around the large squares doesn't work out. I had to rework this to make it come out right. Also, directions are given for the border and a top border, but nothing for a bottom border, which makes the afghan look unfinished. I added a bottom border to mirror what was called for in the top border. It did make up quickly.

This afghan pattern is getting very popular! I would like to try it for an American Holiday such as 4th of July or Veterans Day and change the colors to red, white, and blue. Then it can be displayed more often! Stitchin' Crazy

How can we print this pattern with larger print?

i love this afghan!!!!
