  9. Marianne when you mention :Repeat from ** to ** three times more do you mean to repeat row 11 to 14 3x? Thanks

    1. You repeat all the rows between ** and **
      The first ** is before row 15
      The second ** is after row 38
      So you repeat ALL of these rows - That is rows 15 - 38.
      Hope this helps . M

    1. Usually I make blankets the same length as they are wide.
      So if you have 30" width - work until you have 30" in length :)
