Pattern Trouble
Okay I have tried this already got to row 6 and got frustrated cause apparently its not wide enough, and I also don't know exactly when to purl, it confuses me with that. So if anyone can give me an easier explanation of this pattern it would be awesome.(I'm also only using 2 colors instead of 3 but that's not a problem I understand how to do that part. I'm also planning on making it a bit longer cause I think its a little to short especially since my fiance is 6'3" haha)

Throw measures approximately 51" x 59"

Circular Knitting Needle: 6mm [US 10] -29". Yarn needle

GAUGE: 1 Chevron = 4 1/4" across; 12 rows = 2 1/2" in pattern CHECK YOUR GAUGE. Use any size needle to obtain the gauge

With A, cast on 204 sts. Do not join, but work back and forth in rows as follows:

Foundation Row (Wrong Side): * K2tog, K6, yo, K1, yo, K6, sl 1, K1, psso; repeat from * across - 12 chevrons.

Row 2: Knit

Rows 3 and 4: with B, Knit.

Rows 5 and 7: With A, * K2tog, K6, yo, K1, yo, K6, sl 1, K1, psso; repeat from * across.

Rows 6 and 8: With A, Purl.

Rows 9 and 10: With C, Knit.

Rows 11 and 14: With A, repeat Rows 5-8

Repeat rows 3-14 twenty two more times, then repeat Rows 3 and 4 with B then Row 5 with A.
K3 Rows with A. Bind off.

Weave in ends on wrong side with yarn needle.
