Work 9 Base Triangles." Does this mean to work the 9 Base Triangles in a row, one right after the other? "Tier 1: Work 1 Left Edge Triangle, 8 Wrong Side Rectangles, and 1 Right Edge Triangle." Again, do I do this as written in this order? 1 Left Edge, then 8 Wrong side and then 1 Right Edge? "Tier 2: Work 9 Right Side Rectangles." I'm guessing since there are no other directions under this section that I just do the 9 Right side rectangles all in a row? If I can figure this out I'm sure I can understand the rest. And I think I understand the part about adding more triangles based on the amount of 10 stitches that I add but where do I insert them? In the same area as I'm working under. Like if I added 10 more stitches, under the base tier I would add one more Base Triangle. Then under Tier 1 I would add one more Wrong Side Rectangle then one more Right Side Rectangle. Then in Tier 2 I would add another Right Side Rectangle. Then in the Final Tier I would add one more Top Triangle and keep doing this for ever 10 stitches that I add on? TIA! __________________ On Ravelry as Kohagal

Yes. Work one at a time, but you'll end up with 9 total (or 10 of you decide to add stitches.)

You're working on the back of the blanket for this one, so the rectangle you start with will turn out to be the left edge as the blanket is facing you with the right side.

Once you do a row of rectangles, you'll easily see what you're doing.
