The problem I'm having with this pattern is the blocks are different shapes so it isn't easy to sew together. Has anyone noticed that block A is smaller and less stitches than block B? Am I missing something?

The pattern is right, but I think I know why some are having difficulty with it as I did the first time around. I accidentally stitched into the chain one of the bobble on the previous round which gave me 20 sts instead of 19 which in turn, will not allow your bobbles to line up right. Make sure you don't stitch into the middle chain one of the bobble, and it should be fine.

I found the original pattern on the Bernat website - they call it "BERNAT CHUNKY, BERNAT SOFTEE CHUNKY DIAMONDS AND TWEED BLANKET." Here's the link: http://www.bernat.com/data/pattern/pdf/Bernat_Chunky471_kn_blanket.en_US.pdf

I too would love a posted graph. Rosie20 could you share your graph?

I would like to see the correction of this pattern. Why don't the bobbles line up. Maybe you should post a graph. Thank you

Hi Rhonda, did you get it figured out. I think the instructions are correct, just mind bending. I am new at crocheting so I took a graph and used the squares as stitches and was able to get the bobbles to line up okay the second go around. It is really easy to lose count, so I make sure that I count each stitch (instead of 3sc tween the bobbles), so that way I am able to keep it square in my mind. ex: row 9 = hdc in first 5; bobble in 6; hdc in 7, 8 & 9; bobble in 10; hdc in 11, 12 & 13; bobble in 14; hdc in15-19

Are the correct instructions available. I have purchased the yarn and am ready to get started. Where can I find the complete instructions?

Thanks to our readers who have left comments on this pattern. I have tried accessing it again through Bernat.com and did not have luck finding the original pattern. If any of you crochet fans found some tricks and tips for working this pattern out, please feel free to post them here and help out our other readers! You can also contact us here (http://www.favecrafts.com/index.php/hct/contact_us_page) with correct instructions and we'll be sure to update it as sure as new information becomes available. Thanks again!

Has the directions been corrected? I want to make one but am not experienced enough to correct.

I would really like to make this afghan, however I too am having a lot of problems with the directions. Could someone PLEASE correct it...Thank You

Directions for this pattern are incorrect. For Motif A working instructions as stated in the pattern, the popcorn stitches don't make the diamond. As an experienced crocheter I worked it out, but corrections are needed. I also almost missed the instruction "and alternate rows" so at first it seemed like instructions for rows were missing. Probably should be written a little plainer as I see one of the other comments is that her diamond isn't working out. I enjoy your patterns and your site. Thanks.

Hi There I would love to crochet this pattern to but if the directions are wrong I guess therre is no use. Did you get the correct directions. I sure would love to have them to. Thank you for pointing this out your info was very helpful. I am a beginner and I know I would not be able to figure them out unless they were corrected. If you did get the correct pattern I hope she will correct the pattern and let everyone know. Thank you

Could you please share your corrections? I ended up with the same problems. My diamonds are not lining up.

Very pretty, I haven't seen this pattern before.

How can I see tyhe pattern to make it'? Thanks

I am trying to make Motif A of geometric tweed blanket but my diamond is not coming out! I am fine after 9th row then after my diamond is not coming out right!!

I like the diamonds motif in this afghan so much, that I'm making them into a checkerboard pattern with dark green borders. My daughter gave me 6 balls of chunky yarn ("Loops Threads" Impeccable=3 balls Tan 3 balls dark brown) so I'm giving this to her for Easter. (Her favorite color is Forest Green. It will match her sofa! Thanks. "Stitchin' Crazy"

How did you get your diamonds to line up?

I have tried repeatedly to print this pattern. It does not print. Can you tell me why. Thank you, Jean
