AniseRN, that is exactly how my rows were looking. I did it over and over, thinking I was crazy and it came out just that way! Many thanks for taking the time to type that out. LOL

I've started another blanket, but really do want to make this one for my little one due in April, so I'm going to try it your way this weekend!

Thank you all for taking the time to try to help a poor beginner that's been knitting for years and still knows nothing. LOL

@suzee:

I saw that it says: 3 rows.
but really, what I see in the pics there is stochinette stitch with every second wrong side row knit instead of purl.

and since that is
k
k
p
k
and repeat

I think, there is a mistake there, too.

I also think that the instructions are not really clear for all the squares... she puts "knit" and "purl" for the colors, and she adds "on RS" but maybe it would be really helpful to say:

knit on RS, purl on WS for the white squares
and purl on RS, knit on WS for the gray ones?

that is much easier then.

the one mistake she had and corrected was the same thing, I see here: she had forgotten a WS row. If you enter that one row, you are right where the pics show:

3 lines of "v"s in between the bumpy line. (you can click on the pic in the blog to enlarge the pic)

I looked it up on ravelry to see if there were mistakes and only the white square was mentioned. No one said anything about the green one.

In the comments on Ravelry a couple people mentioned the same issue I was having (I'm also in the comments. ). I also noticed in some of the projects, a lot of users have the thick "ridges" like I was getting. Maybe they gave up too. LOL

One user frogged her whole blanket because she said many of the instructions were "off"....

I really like this blanket, so I hope I can pull this off.

Hmm, that's what I was looking for, but didn't look closely enough maybe. Maybe if you do it as the 4 row repeat that will look more like the pictures.

I worte a message to the pattern maker. Since she links her ravelry page that was pretty easy.
I also did include the link to this discussion.
I will let you know if / when I get an answer or maybe she will log in and tell us right of.
I really want to know now. (still sticking with my idea about the 4 row repeat, but anything is possible, really)

Hi!
That email on Ravelry was worth it. I got a very nice mail back from "jupe". She confirms that the correct repeat is

k
k
p
k

so maybe that will help when you go about the blanket again.
If you have further questions, I guess writing to her in person will be the best idea. She is closest to the ideas behind the pattern.

have fun with the blanket.
