Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

The side edges took 3 attempts for this rookie (not a pattern problem, a learning leap) and I am very happy with the results. There isn't a mathmatical pattern to " pick up and knit 194 sts" but I placed markers and finally got the count on both sides. I would give this pattern a hgih rating if I could find out where to do that, lol!

Could you tell me how many skeins of yarn it takes to make this afgan pattern? I don't see where it gives this information. I'm a beginner knitter. Was this an easy project to knit? Thanks. Betty Bryant

I'm just beginning the Side Edges and need more info regarding when to skip picking up a stitch in order to knit 194 sts evenly. I will post once I am successful with it.
