On the textured striped throw, on Row 3 when you do the FPDC, do you grab the post from the double crochet or the small post from the single crochet on the line before?

This is going to be one rugged blanket !!! Good for boys.

They do not say it in the pattern but if the skipped chains are counted as a stitch the count is correct. Not sure , just my take.

I have the same question as Klester 78 2560961. Row 1 doesn't match the number of chains. Would someone please let us know the correct number of stiches needed. I would love to make this afghan, but I can't, such shame!

Hi sweetrose46, I see your confusion! This is a Red Heart Pattern taken directly from their website - I just double checked for any corrections, and this version of the pattern matches what they have posted on their site. My advice would be to contact Red Heart for pattern support and see what they suggest. Thanks - and sorry for any inconvenience! Julia, editor for AllFreeCrochetAfghanPatterns

I'm confused with the beginning. It states to chain 135. Row 1 says to Dc in 4th ch from hook and in each ch across turn - 133 sts. Now in my math 135 - 3 equals 132. That is how many stitches I ended up with. Do I need 133 stitches for the pattern or do I need 132 stitches? Rating would be higher (I love the look of the throw, but confusion at the very beginning is an issue).
