  1. It would be nice to be able to print out the full free pattern as I travel and I haven’t a way to carry my laptop around with me. Too bad because it looks like it is a very nice piece.

  2. Hi, thank you for this fun pattern!! Plan to have it in line to make after a few others. I have a question…you say at row 4 to repeat rows 2 and 3 til blanket is as long as we want, then there is a row 5…that doesn’t appear to fit at all with the pattern as there is no “bubble”. Please help me understand this.
