I found a gorgeous baby blanket that I would like to knit. The link is
Although I think I can handle the pattern and knitting, my question is this: is it necessary to knit it in 7 strips? Why can’t I knit it in fewer strips. In other words, cast on 75 stitches and do three strips in one, and then cast on 100 and knit the remaining 4 strips as 1? :??
Thanks for your input!
