      HELP! I am attempting to make this for my grandson. I m using Uptown Worsted yard instead of the Paintbox Yards Wool Mix Chunky. That does not seem to be a problem.

      1. The picture indicates that the right side is all one stitch (knit?) and the wrong side is supposed to be all pearl?? However my interpretation of the initial directions end up knitting rows 1-8, using Color A, with right side knitting stitch. The rows 9-10, using color B, end up with the right side being pearl, then perhaps going back to right side knitted for rows 11-12, using color C.

      Also I don't understand the instructions for row 12 "Repeat last 4 rows 4 [21] more times. Row 12 is supposed to be Color C. THEN there is an extensive (perhaps the 21 rows of Color D for rows 25.

        I convert all patterns into spreadsheets so I can just tick the rows off as I go! If you let me have your email, I'll send it to you if that helps...

        @Linda H:
        I also do spreadsheets (to some extent). I would love to have a copy of the one you had when doing the Thriller Throw. If you sent it to me a while ago, I did not receive it. I am becoming a bit more familiar with the directions, but I think the spreadsheet would really help. Thanks so much. My e-mail address is: delores.godfrey@verizon.net

        Thanks!
