I loved making this for my grandaughter

I am starting to make this beautiful blanket; but I am confused on Row 2 (With yarn at back of work, draw up a loop in next vertical bar, with yarn at front of work, draw up a loop in next vertical bar] 7 times, with yarn at back of work, draw up a loop in last vertical bar. What does that mean? With yarn at the back of work and yarn at the front of work? Can someone please help !!??

I am about 50% finished making my squares. I am new to Tunisian crochet, so instead of doing the "yarn at front..., yarn at back...", I made all the colored squares using the Tunisian simple stitch, where you don't have to move the yarn at all. You just do your stitches with the yarn at the back all the time. It looks fine - not quite as fancy as the stitch called for, but plenty good for my nine-yr-old g-daughter! She won't know the difference and I'm not telling (except here!) This whole blanket is very nice, but not as easy/quick as I imagined it would be. I'm excited to see it finished. Hope this helps!

Love, love, love this! It's so pretty with the pastels and easy to make. Thanks for sharing this pattern with us.
