Multiple of 11 +5


#1

I am not currently working on a project, though of course I have many projects on the “half done” list. Anyway, I saw a pattern that would be great to use to make a mermaid blanket… but I have some questions. It is a multiple of 11 + 5, so of course I would start with 16. So after the 16 rows of repeat, I thought maybe I could add 16 more stitches to continue the pattern, thus every 17 row, add 16 stitches- would that work?

Hi, the pattern knits across 11 sts with an extra 5 sts for when the pattern ‘shifts’
You add multiples of 11sts then add 5 extra sts once.
Hope this helps, or makes sense at least!!
Enjoy your knitting
