This is a keeper BUT.... to follow the pattern makes this afghan HUGE. I have a queen bed and it could easily cover a king sized bed. It also takes twice the yarn. Next time I make this, I won't follow the repeat pattern as many times and leave off a few rows. Otherwise, a very easy pattern to follow.

I have made many of these over the past 30 or 40 years When you get one side the size you want, just don't go up the next row and slip stitch over the block you just made. Turn and continue . This makes a beautiful baby afghan.

Absolutely in love with this pattern, but would like to see a picture of it laid out. Can anyone help me with this?

I've finished the blanket and I'm ready to start the edging. However, I'm finding the instructions alittle confusing. It starts off ok but then it says, " ...sc in center dc of next block, 3 dc in next ch-3 space or over dc;..." What do they mean by "over dc"? That phrase is confusing to me. Can anyone clarify these instructions please?

I'm making this for my niece. It's a beautiful afghan and will be nice and warm, too!! I love the colors and this stitch is a nice change from the other afghans I've made.
