Okay, I am so slow because it is so late, but I don't understand, all I really want to do is take the cast on requirements for the sweater and add enough additional cast on stitches to get a much larger surface, obviously the width of a sweater would in most cases not suffice as a baby blanket, so for example if the cast on requirement for the sweater were 87 (for a small), I would think that would not be enough to get a decent size baby blanket so I would want to probably double that, so I did and I am still working on it to see if it would make since. I was thinking during my initial post that I would need to do some division to make sure I have just the right amount of stitches so as to not muck up the pattern, obviously with knitting there is some math involved. You can't just take a pattern and just cast on how ever many stitches you want and expect to get the desired effect. Am I right. Okay, thanks for your help. I figure if no one can help or even understand my question I will just keep trying.
Hey, thats part of what knitting is about right? , this is great for my knitting muscles.
