Ok, I’ll start off with this. I found this pattern on www.knitspot.com.
It is fine but I’d like it bigger. It says it is a pattern of 6 sts plus 6 for something (?). My question is, if I want it wider do I add multiples of 6 plus 6 for (?)? It would be easier if someone could just tell me how many to cast on. I have multiple sclerosis and that is not an excuse. Just an explanation of how my brain doesn’t aways work in the way that it should. I’ve lost a considerable part of my memory and the use of my right leg, so I’d be afraid if I figured it out, it would be wrong…Presently it is 21" X 72". The length is fine but I would like it wider. Somewhere around 28" - 32" would be great.
So please don’t leave it to my mushy brain to try to figure it out. I’ve got the stitch pattern down as I used to knit baby blankets out of this pattern. Could someone please help me? You’ve never let me down yet and I don’t suppose you will this time, either. You are a great bunch of ladies and I really appreciate the fact that you are here even if I don’t use you very often.
Another question. Would this look good with bulky yarn or should I use a lighter weight yarn. Any thoughts would be apprciated…
