How do you need the same amount of all the yarn colors? It seems like you should need 4x as much white. I am buying smaller balls of yarn so I didn't want to end up with tons of excess. Thanks for the help!

Would love to make this, but could you please tell me what the equivalent of 'Worsted Weight'. Is this thicker than 8 ply. We live in Australia
Love your site. Thank you

I don't really understand about the border either. This is a beginner pattern so perhaps more instruction for us "beginners"?? haha! Did anyone else get an answer?

Hi Susan
hope this helps...
sew your 4 blocks together to form blanket. Each block has side of 58 sts, so one side of the blanket will have 58x2=116 sts to pick up for first edging strip. Do the 18 rows for edging. Roll this and stitch to where you picked up for the edging. This gives a rolled edging of 9 sts.
For second side edging the pick up will be 116 from the blanket + 9 from the rolled edge =125 sts.
does that mke sense of the maths???

good luck

I think it is time for you to take a basic beginner's knitting class!! This is basic knowledge -- everybody knows this technique!!!

This may be common knowledge for people who knit a lot, but I knitted several garments before I had to find out how to do this. A friend showed me without telling me that I needed to go to a class to learn how to do it. Be kind in your comments.

Your question is an excellent question!I am a self taught knitter and crocheter. I learned by watching tutorials on YouTube.
If you have access to YouTube then you can, almost all the time, find a tutorial for whatever you need to learn in order to complete a pattern.
Go to YouTube and search "how to pick up stitches"
This way you not only get your questions answered but you can also watch an example or "tutorial" of it being done.
I have been able to do easy to intermediate patterns and some difficult ones as well.
I am addicted to knitting and so I find YouTube a very handy tool to use and learn from. I have been knitting three years now with no plans to stop. I appreciate all the free patterns available and thank all the knitters and crocheters who take the time to put out free patterns etc. For those of us still learning. :)
