  3. where it says 'finish with a garter stitch border' can you show of picture of this please? i'm not sure how the whole blanket should look like.

  4. Is row 11 worked on the right or wrong side?

    1. Row 11 is a right side row :)

    2. Thank you!! My blanket is nearly finished. Great pattern. A lovely baby shower gift!

    4. s1 means slip the first stitch it makes for a smoother edge

  5. What is S1 stand for? I thought Slip 1, but you would be minus a stitch in every row.

    1. It is slip one stitch, a slip stitch does not decrease the amount of stitches, so you will not be decreasing in stitches, you are simply moving the stitch from the left needle to the right needle without working it, it just makes a nice consistent edge.
