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.

ok I just sat here and re read the pattern, now i get the purl and knit part but I still don't understand why my pattern is a little short, it will line up now but at the end it gets cut off... I guess for my first project its not going to be perfect but I'm still curious how I ran short when I followed the directions....

Is there a border? I'm stumped, it would appear what you've put down is just the chevron and K2tog as a start to any row is not something that is... usual and customary. I'm just thinking that the first few stitches on any row should be the border. Is there a link to this pattern or even a picture of it?

I will try to get you a picture, the pattern is just a free one I got from ACMoore so I will have to search for the picture.

Check how you do YOs, they just add a stitch and don't use one. Wrap the yarn around the needle, not wrap and knit 1. So when you do Row 1 - K2tog, K6, yo, K1, yo, K6, sl 1, K1, psso; - you'll have a single stitch between the YOs, then 6 sts then the decrease.

If you do a K1 after the YOs, you use up a stitch and don't have enough to do the right number of repeats.

The pattern count works for me.

204 stitches= 12 repeats of 17 stitches

so-
K2tog-a decr of one so=1st
K6=6st
yo=1st (add one stitch by bring yarn forward under needle, over top & back to make next stitch)
K1=1st
yo=1st
K6=6st
sl 1, K1, psso-a decr of one so=1 st

One thing that helps me keep count is using waste yarn as markers. I put a strip of whatever extra yarn I have lying around at the beginning of a repeat. Work the stitch pattern. Then go back & check that I have correct number of loops on the needle. I do that for every repeat (you can reuse the yarn bits.) So if I do mess up my count, I catch it right away.
