Please can you help me with the pattern Multicoloured Diamond blanket? The second row all even rows - does one use main colour every time it the colour of the previous row?? The pattern does not mention what colour yarn should be used for the series??

Hi Irene! I checked with our resident knitting expert and we think you use the color from the previous row each time. Otherwise the pattern should have mentioned changing colors. I hope this helps! Please let me know if you find that to be correct, and I can add a note in the pattern. Have a great day! -Dana from FaveCrafts
