pattern 1682 Sirdar
Hi
I am knitting the blanket of this pattern and havent kniitted for years. I am now coming to the side edgings and it is making no sense to me. It says ' pick up and 10 sts along evenly along rib, 150 sts evenly along side edge and 10 sts evenly along rib. 170 sts.
I can't work this out as the pattern is 96 sts and if I only pick up 10 at the top and bottom will I end up with a triangle??? Help me please it is driving me nuts.

Is there a picture of the blanket that we can see somewhere? Do you do the same along the other side after that?

eta - I found a picture of a textured rib sweater and hat and presume it's a similar stitch pattern. Maybe you pick up 10 sts in each rib.

My guess from what you said is that the end borders were ribbed and worked right on. So you began with some ribbing then went into whatever is the main body of the blanket. Then at the end you did more ribbing.

Now they are having you add some side borders (end borders are already there). Pick up 10 stitches along the ends of the ribbing section, then pick up 150 along the main body of the blanket, then on the other border pick up another 10 stitches along the ribbing that is there=170 sts altogether.

No sorry still can't see how that works, bearing in mind I am a total novice. How can I only pick up 10 stitches from the top and bottom when there are 96 stitches across. Sorry for being a dim wit

Now that merigold's explained it, you're only picking up sts along one side, 170 sts. You don't pick up sts along the 96 st edges.

Is this it? Not a great picture of the blanket.

I think what Merigold said makes the most sense.
You've got 96 stitches on your needle - did they tell you to bind off yet? I guessing yes. Now you need to pick up stitches along the side - a total of 170.

Got it, I thought you had to pick up at the ends....would have been easier if just said pick up 170 stitches along the edges...what hope for me as a future knitter???? Thanks All..

There wouldn't be much point in binding off sts at the ends, then picking up more sts there because you can knit the ends in the ribbing stitch.
