I created a blanket and didn’t realize it wasn’t wide enough until I cast off. I am going to create another piece and attach it to the already existing piece. When I first cast on, I started with… hmm… maybe 144 stitches, plus or minus a few. I am sure that I accidentally increased a few times while knitting, which means I don’t know the correct amount of stitches right now.
It is about 56 inches long x 36 inches wide right now. I used size 10mm (actually, I’m not sure if it’s mm or US - they’re really small) circular needles. I cast on its length and knitted its width. Does that make sense?
So, my question is: how many stitches should I cast so the new piece is as long as my current piece?
