Sally J advised you that this is a stitch pattern with a 10 stitch multiple plus 7 for the borders. She suggested trying it out on 67, not 63 stitches. If you wanted to work narrower strips, you would cast-on 37 stitches.

I would suggest trying out this stitch pattern on a large gauge swatch with 37 stitches so you can see how the stitch pattern works. I would then cast-on the 217 stitches required by the pattern since having all those border stitches in between your strips will change the look of the blanket greatly.

Why does your mother think there is a problem with the pattern? Is it that your count is working out but it doesn't look like the picture? No offense meant to your mother but some very experienced, highly skilled knitters are not very good at reading or interpreting written patterns. They learned with either verbal directions or simply seeing a pattern and written patterns have their own "language."
