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?


Nov 24, 2013

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?
