    A question about row 2, the blanket is turning out with the inside of the diamond looking like a knit stitch, but in your picture it looks like a stockinette stitch. Is it possible that instead of K the K sts and P the P sts in the even rows it should be K the P and P the K? Thank you for your help. My gmail is if you want to email there instead of posting a comment.
