After I finish row 7 and the pattern coninues, what rows are to be continured? Surely not rows 1-7. Please respond ASAP as I am having surgery on Nov 2 and I only have this month to get the afghan done.

Hi there! I believe you are actually repeating rows 2-7. In the gauge section above there's a point on the "6 row repeat". I believe the six rows you're repeating are rows 2-7. Good luck!

I love this Sweet Baby Dreams Afghan. The pattern is very well written and looks so easy to do! I like working with the Red Heart Super Saver Baby yarn. It's so soft and works up well. I copied and pasted the pattern in word and saved it. The pattern is written and looks so easy to make on my lazy evenings. Thank you for this beautiful free afghan pattern.

I cannot print patterns, when I can, I get all the comments and pictures, WHY????
