looks like I left out the symbols in my previous comment below - pattern states it's a multiple of 7 plus 2 - if I'm doing math correctly 7x21 = 147 plus 1 = 148 -- plus 2 would = 149 starting chains

wish the pic of the actual afghan was bigger/better - ty for including the better smaller insert pic tho as that sure helps however the pattern states it's a multiple of 7 2 - if I'm doing math correctly 7x21 = 147 1 = 148 the of starting chain sts. I would like to make this as a baby afghan (smaller) therefore wondering about the math - hope someone can help or I'll just hafta figure it out myself by actually 'doing it'

I worked this twice and the chain should be 71.

Sorry 7 1

7 plus 1

I was just working on this pattern and noticed a typo in Row 4 that I was tripped up on for a minute. Right after the asterisk, it SHOULD read "skip next ch 2 space, dc in next 2 dc..." instead of "skip next 2 ch 2 spaces, dc in next 2 dc...". Otherwise, I'm enjoying this pattern!
