Lily of the Valley Baby Throw - Knit

Blush Heather Wool-Ease by Lion Brand
 So, I have been enjoying some rest and relaxation with the family and haven't had a chance to keep up with all the new patterns mom has turned out (she is a crocheting genius in my opinion). I made this afghan pattern for a lily of the valley stitch a few months ago and hadn't taken the time to write it out, but since we are undertaking this new adventure of sharing our ideas, here it  is:

Materials: 5 skeins of Lion Brand Wool-Ease (I used blush heather). Size 7 circular needles with 36" cable.

 Cast on 136 stitches. Knit 1 1/2 inches in garter stitch (knit front and reverse).
Begin Pattern: Maintain a 5 stitch band of garter stitch as the border. Knit chart 7 times for each row.
Row 1:knit 5, *knit 4, purl 2 together, knit 2, yarn over, knit 5, yarn over, knit 2, purl 2 together, knit 1* - repeat from * to * 6 times more, knit 5.
Row 2 (and all even rows): knit 5, purl to last five stitches, knit 5
Row 3: knit 5, *knit 3, purl 2 together, knit 2, yarn over, knit 1, yarn over, knit 2, purl 2 together, knit 6* - repeat from * to * 6 times more, knit 5
Row 5: knit 5, *knit 2, purl 2 together, knit 2, yarn over, knit 3, yarn over, knit 2, purl 2 together, knit 5* - repeat from * to * 6 times more, knit 5
Row 7: knit 5, *knit 1, purl 2 together, knit 2, yarn over, knit 5, yarn over, knit 2, purl 2 together, knit 4* - repeat from * to * 6 times more, knit 5
Row 9: knit 5, *knit 6, purl 2 together, knit 2, yarn over, knit 1, yarn over, knit 2, purl 2 together, knit 3* - repeat from * to * 6 times more, knit 5
Row 11: knit 5, * knit 5, purl 2 together, knit 2, yarn over, knit 3, yarn over, knit 2, purl 2 together, knit 2* - repeat from * to * 6 times more, knit 5

Repeat chart until afghan has reached the desired length (approximately 34 1/2 inches). Beginning with reverse side, knit 1 1/2 inches in garter stitch. Bind off.
