This is a blanket that is made up of rows, but the work is from the front for some rows, and from the reverse for others, alternating as you please. This blanket may be made to any width and length that is needed, merely by adding more foundation dc’s in the leading row. The stripes can go horizontal or vertical, just by adjusting the number of dc’s in the first row. The link to the free pattern is below.

    Good morning. I selected the link for your pattern and got a “404 Not found” message. Could you please help me with accessing your pattern? It is a stunning piece!

    1. Thank you. Try now please.

  3. You really need to work on making your patterns more accessible. I understand putting the link for the pattern to click on another post gives you more ad views, but the link you’ve provided leads to a hat pattern and the link you’ve provided for saving to Pinterest pins an Ewok pattern. This pattern looks great and I’d love to try it, but if we can’t find the pattern really a bummer.

    1. Link was broken indeed and lead to wrong pin, We fixed it. Thank you for letting us know!
