I am working a pattern for the first time and the one that I chose (I really like the design) ia for a 24 x 35" blanket. I want it to be 48 x 35" It says to cast on 110, work 9 rows and inc 10 across the last row. then follow the pattern until work from beg measures 34", dec 10 on last row and work 9 rows on.
Can I increase the cast on to 220 and make the inc & dec to 20 to make the finished product double the 24"?
Also, when you work a double cast on it creates 2 loop around the needle. Are these considered 2 sts or should I knit them together?
