Broken Basketweave Blanket

I used a pattern made for an entirely diffent yarn (a much more expensive, thinner, and much more beautiful yarn!) to make a throw. I like the pattern with the nice yarn better, but I am very happy with how warm this version will be. I am using Encore Chunky and a size 11 needle. I was doing fine speed-wise. Until...I knit a whole section a row too soon. The pattern is knit "backwords" (wrong-side forward) for an entire section. If this was a scarf, i.e. shorter rows, it'd be really easy to pull out the stitches for 20 rows and start over again. However, since this is a fairly wide throw, I have been hesitant to go back and fix it. I plan on tackling it this week, though. Wish me luck. I can't wait to see it finished. And of course to use it, too. I just love this color!
