          This pattern knits up into a beautiful afghan! I found Amherst wonderful to work with-great stitch definition. The finished piece is soft and warm and beautiful to look at. I didn't have any problems with errors in the pattern.

          Great Looking but wrong

          This pattern is not written correctly. The # of CO sts is incorrect and the chart fails to display ALL 32 Rows. The rep st pattern is 13 sts with 1 K edge st each edge. The chart does not reflect this either. After casting on over and over and working the first two Rows, it becomes obvious that you should CO 158 sts NOT 159. That makes for 12 (13-st rep) plus 2 edge sts. The chart does not show the even Rows or the last row. Shame on you for selling this without fully checking it. ===>WEBS COMMENT (Actually, the stitch pattern uses a multiple of 12 sts + 3, so the cast on number is correct. The chart only shows the right side rows, but the written directions instruct you on what to do on the wrong side rows, including the final row. The pattern has been extensively checked and test knit and we haven't discovered any problems with it, but if you have any further questions, please feel free to email customerservice@yarn.com. Thanks! - Kirsten)
