BERNAT® BABY SPORT STAGGERED SQUARES BLANKET (TO KNIT) #458
My niece is having twins and I'm working on a few things for her. I found a really cute knitted blanket pattern and thought it would be easy but right out the gate I have a question

What does this mean: INSTRUCTIONS
Cast on 133 sts. Working back
and forth across needle in rows,
proceed as follows:
Work 7 rows in garter st (knit
every row), noting 1st row is WS
and inc 8 sts evenly across last
row. 141 sts.

where do I increase at? what sort of increase do I use? Help please

Thanks,
Wendy

When you work the final row, you can do pretty much any increase, M1, or kfb, evenly spaced (or so) across the row.

You could start with an increase, end with an increase and increase about every 20 stitches between. It doesn't have to be exact.

Having trouble w/staggered squares baby blanket
Went to Bernat site, may have to phone Canada.
Having trouble with 9th row, last 6-7 stitches.
When I slip a stitch and then knit, I turn to do
10th row, and see what looks like a missed stitch.
On circular needle. How to do last stitches of
9th row is what I am asking.
yon - knit 5??
I don't have piece in front of me.
Or just skip yon and knit to end??
I have wasted half ball of yarn already.
I hate to give up.
Thx for any help.

Can you post just Row 9? It may be that there was a dec - sl 1 k1, psso - and you forgot to pass the sl st over.

There's no YO at the end of the row - K5, p1, then the repeat is YO, k3 skp, k4 p1, YO, k3, skp, k4 p1 etc and you end with k5. So maybe you did forget to slip the sl st over somewhere in there.

I knit a lot of lace and often find that I've forgotten to do a YO or pass the sl st over. If you do the sl k p as ssk, you'll be less likely to forget it because you slip the 2 sts separately then put the L needle into the front of them and knit together.

Bernat staggered squares blanket
Me again!

1st row:
(RS) K5. P1. *K4. k2tog. K3 yrn. P1. Rep from * to last 5 sts. K5.
I am being extremely careful with this-my question is: Does every
row have to be completed fully before last 5 stitches?
I get to P1, and cannot get it in-go right from K3 to last 5 sts>
Same with some other rows.
