Hello i do not know where to go to print this pattern so I can start the project. Pls help/ Diana

Wow, what a beautiful Eugene Throw. I can't wait to get the yarn to crochet this one. I love a challenge and learning new stitches. The Front-post cluster looks very interesting. I want to make one in Royal Blue. Looking forward to this one. Thank you for this free pattern.

I'm trying to make this but am having a problem with row 16 - after I've completed the row and go on to row 17 - should be 115 sc but I'm losing 10 sc somewhere and so the row is only 105 - what am I doing worng? Thanks

It looks like 115 stitches per row with 24 stitches per repeat. Just add 24 stitches to beginning chain and repeat 4 times instead of 3 times.

We need a "print" button for this beautiful throw. Each time I printed it it came out missing a few rows (different rows each time).

I would love to make this into a full-size afghan. My family are all tall and love to snuggle under afghans from head to toe. How many more chains would each pattern repeat need?

I LOVE the Eugene Throw, but I'd like to make an afghan -- wider -- at least another 8-12 inches. I like my afghans at least 48 inches wide -- could you tell me how many more I would have to chain ?
