So I came back to this after a while, checked out some instructional videos and finally figured out what I was doing wrong! Now I am excited to knit this!

On row one I have 4 extra stitches after doing the pattern and do not understand row 3 says to last 9 stitches when it shows 13 stitches left in the pattern- also a difference of 4. I just can't figure out what I am doing wrong- HELP!

Will this pattern work with only one strand of yarn? Can I use thicker yarn instead of using two strands of yarn? Thanks! Olivia

I made this and put a fringe on the ends. It's easy and I plan on making it again. Instructions were very clear and easy to understand.

This is so helpful. I don't have a car, so going to a nearby craft shop is almost impossible. This is truly wonderful to find such lovely patterns. Everyone always receives something homemade with love, so I thank you for this.

It is always best to work with the yarn coming from 2 balls rather than make a ball of the two yarns and work them as one. The reason being that you never have the strands totally even. Some how there is always one strand longer than the other and it does make the work more complicated. Then having a third ball as the instruction call for, work both end of that last ball together One from the outside of the ball and one from the inside. Only be carefull to pull out from the very center but if you get a larger amount, don't worry, it will be eventually worked and then you will be sailing.
