I want to make the Broken Rib Baby Blanket from the Plymouth Encore 8 hour Baby Blanket Revisited, using Knitpicks Cadena bulky (held single) from my stash instead of Encore worsted held double. I want the blanket to come out approx the same size (28"x32") but it doesn’t have to be exact. So, my question is how to get the right number of sts to cast on in order to get the st repeat correct?
Pattern gauge = 2.5 st/in on size 13 needles
Cadena gauge = 3 st/in on size 11 needles
Blanket uses simple 2 row st pattern:
Row 1: K3, p1, * (k3, p1); repeat from * across to last 3 sts, k3.
Row 2: K1, *(p1, k3); repeat from * across to last 2 sts, p1, k1.
Thanks in advance!
