I have ripped this pattern out 3 times because I lose stitches as I go but I haven't figured it out yet. Is anybody else having this problem???

I had to give up on this blanket . Starting with row 9 pattern seems incorrect to me.

I would like to make this bigger,what would the number be to make it bigger.thank you

I am confused about 3 of the abbreviations used in this pattern--what are the differences between yrn (Row 1), yfwd (Row 3-especially as it occurs between knit stitches!), and yon (Row 9)????

I went to the bernat website and found that yfwd means yarn forward, yon means yarn over needle (another way to say yarn over) and yrn means yarn round needle. I don't know if this helps. I am not sure what the exact difference between these last 2 are.

This comment is applies to all who post knitting and crochet patterns. When giving yarn information, the weight and length of the yarn in each skein would be nice as that is the information required for any yarn substitutions. Stating the yarn is "(350 g / 12.3 oz)" as stated in this pattern only gives us the weight of the skein, not the length of the yarn in the skein, as grams and oz (ounces) are weight measurements. What about how many yards or meters are in the skein, too - that would be a more complete description for yarn substitutions. I can't believe how many patterns I see on this site, and its affiliates, that give incomplete yarn information. Aren't people aware of what's needed for their own craft? Please, don't let this country descend deeper into ignorance and loss of knowledge, or how to communicate appropriate and accurate information

I agree that accuracy is important. According to the bernat web site, there are 1256 yards in the regular and 893 yards in the ombre
