Yes, the stitches came out looking like ladders. Very cleverly designed to achieve that ladder look. Nice!

Wow what a beautiful pattern this Festive Step Ladder Throw is. I have to research how to do the dtr stitch. I don't believe I have ever done it before. I'm hoping it isn't to hard of a stitch to do. I really like the colors used and hope to find a yarn to make this one. Thank you so much for sharing this free crochet throw pattern.

I am unable to find the yarn recommended in this pattern in these colors either online or in stores.

Hi kathleenia 7912048, It's possible the yarn is no longer available in these colorways. However, this pattern would work up well in any color, or in a different super bulky yarn in similar colors to those above. I hope that helps! --Kaitlin, AFCAP Editor

I really wish that all sites with free patterns would include the print/pdf button. I woul rather save the pattern on my iPad than waste paper printing it. I always seem to loose the printed one.

I don't get what it means that at the end of Row 1 your don't turn your work. HOW can you always have the RS facing you? Confused.

I'm thinking that because every row is fastened off, you just join the next color with the right side facing you.

Great little tutorial here. -) https//www.youtube.com/watch?v=m-zHl9LKwlY
