Say "Ahoy!" and sail the adventures of the high seas with the Nautical Blanket! Each block of the blanket spells out a letter of the alphabet using the International Maritime signal flags, while Nautical stars in each of the corners completes the theme. Go through each flag alphabetically, or use the charts to send a secret message! All of the blocks are worked using stripes and intarsia, while a garter stitch border is knit on in a mitered style to ensure each block lays flat and fits together easily.

I am having the same issue as Amber had with the border. The "squares" are not 12.5 before seaming. It is impossible given the 58 stitches, but 72 rows. So, border instructions should be corrected to reflect the correct number of stitches.

I love the pattern and the charts are excellent. Where it is a bit thin on details is how to make the border. Maybe this is 'common knowledge' for other knitters, but I have a question: It says to pick up and knit 58 stitches on each side...well that make sense for the first and last rows which actually ARE 58 stitches each, but on the 'sides' there are 72 rows. Hm. Not sure if this is a pattern error or if I am missing something. Help Please!

And in response to Wendy's inquiry: If you use an extended, flexible afghan hook (KnitPicks carries the interchangeable crochet hooks with expansion cables), you can follow the pattern using the Tunisian technique, just follow the grid layout for row and column number; that's how I made my blankets!

I was lucky enough to snag one of the last complete kits a couple of years ago, and used it to make a nautical "S" for my oncologist's new baby (got it to her just before she left for maternity leave), and a nautical "A" for my cousin's daughter. Both were well received, and I'm looking forward to making the nautical "Z" for my grandnephew, Zion. I may not get to create a piece with the full alphabet, but at least they got items no one else they know already has!

I love this Nautical throw pattern! When, I clicked on it, I was crossing my fingers it was a crochet pattern! We are sailors and hoist our name up the halyard! I have been picking up nautical decor for years, for a retirement home on the water. If there is a crochet pattern for this; I would love to get it!
