Actually this whole pattern doesn't seem to add up to 168 sts. Can you someone please explain to me? Thanks.

I made this with chunky yarn as a lap blanket for my elderly mom, it's a great pattern for a new knitter to learn the basic stitch patterns and to make something that looks a lot harder than it is! The blanket came out great, thanks for the pattern! :D

Ladies, I have found that a copy/paste method works well to create a Word or a text document: Click and hold your mouse to highlight what you want to copy. Then rightclick and select 'copy', open the program you want to copy it into (I favor Works), right click on the open blank document and select 'paste.' Depending on the program and your available memory it may take a minute or so to get this done. You may or may not choose to include the photo, which will also carry over on your clipboard. This method will eliminate all the ads from being printed in your final document.
