Here is what you do for the ODD-NUMBERED ROWS, which means that the RIGHT SIDE of your blanket is Facing You: Work your 4 edge stitches like above. On the diagram, you are starting at the next-up row starting on the right-hand [this corresponds with the RIGHT side] edge. So for this first square – the WHITE boxes in the diagram = knit and the DARK boxes = purl. Done? Cool. Take a deep breath. You are about to start the middle square – which is exactly the opposite of the first square. Meaning.... you start over again at the next-up row, RIGHT hand side of your teddy bear diagram and this time, the WHITE boxes mean Purl. That's because you are doing exactly the opposite of what you did for that first square. The third square on this odd-numbered row [on the Right side up of your blanket] is identical to your first square, where the white boxes mean Knit and you do the 4 seed stitches for the border at the far edge of the thing. You turn the row. Now you have the WRONG side of the Blanket facing you and you start the EVEN numbered row. Meaning you will follow your pattern starting at the next row up from the bottom at the LEFT hand edge of your chart. [Hint: it is a very good idea to put a check mark at the edge of the chart at the row you just completed so you don't get confused. When you work through the pattern again, you could then circle your check mark as you complete the rows.] Okay. So you slip your first stitch, work the next 3 sts in the seed stitch. Now STOP. LOOK at your work. You now see the lumps that mean Purl, right? Then THAT is what you do... PURL the next 32 stitches. Why? Because the backside of every single knit stitch you ever make is... a purl stitch. And now you are on the BACK side of your blanket. So you go to the next row up from the bottom, PURL the white boxes and Knit the dark boxes [well, you will when you do the wrong side and the row has dark boxes, anyway.] Done those 32 sts? Great! Now STOP. Here again is the middle square. Look at those stitches – hey! These are now KNIT! Why? Once again, because the backside of every purl stitch is... a knit stitch. Go once again to the 2nd row from the bottom and this time every white box means KNIT and the dark box will mean Purl. So work through the next 32 stitches following the chart. And the third square is just the same as the first square was. The final 4 stitches are your seed-stitch border. Repeat these 2 instructions for each odd-numbered and even-numbered row until you have completed the whole Teddy Bear Chart, including the topmost 2 rows that are plain Knit or Purl. Then switch so that the next set of Teddy Bear squares are opposite - meaning what you did for the Center Teddy Bear square will now be the two Outside Teddy Bear squares; and what you did for the two outside Teddy Bear squares... you now do for the Center Teddy Bear Square. Hope this answers your questions... Dot __________________ My words sell the Magic of a Dream
