Take a trip to Downton Abbey with this crochet throw, inspired by the hit show. Mrs. Hughes' Crochet Afghan is an intermediate crochet pattern that's worked up with a chestnut brown yarn from a Downton-inspired yarn line. This crochet throw pattern features plush stitches and crochet cables worked both in rows and in a criss-cross lattice formation. Use any shade of bulky-weight yarn for your own design, as this crochet pattern will shine in any hue! Throw this finished design over your couch for some instant vintage charm.

Notes:
On the Lattice Foundation Row only, FPDC will be worked around dc posts. On all subsequent rows, FPDC will be worked around posts of FPDC of previous rows.

I havent even been able to get half way into row 7. I have even redone the blanket 4 times now the count does not seem right at all. It seems like its missing 2 stiches.

Row 6 Ch 3, FPDC over next 2 dc, dc in next dc, sk 3 dc, FPTr over next 3 sts, then working from right to left, in front of FPTr just worked, FPTr over 3 skipped dc, dc in next dc, FPDC over next 2 dc, dc in next 13 dc rep from 3 more times, then rep from to once, dc in last st, turn. 2 1 3 3 = 9, then going backwards -3 = 6 1 2 = 9 (again) for the to (9 13 ) 4 = 88 22 = 110 That's If I'm reading / counting correctly. If so, then I can confirm that you are correct, 2 stitches are missing. Mind you, I haven't tried this, I just whipped out my calculator in an effort to troubleshoot. )

I apologize that's tough to read. Plus signs are apparently not allowed, and neither are paragraph breaks. 8(
