Need help

I have found a pattern I want to use to make blankets for my kids. However for my older kids I need to make it bigger. How would I do that? The pattern I am using goes from one corner to the other, adding stitches as I go. On the pattern it says to keeping adding stitches until I get to 131 and then start decreasing. So would I just keep going until I have the amount of stitches I want and then start decreasing? I want to make sure before I do this and mess it up. lol If anyone knows please help me.

Thank you :heart:

If I understand correctly, the blanket is knit diagonally. In that case, to make it bigger, you just keep adding stitches after arriving at 131 to make it bigger.

Without the pattern though, it’s difficult to say how to keep the blanket in pattern.

Yes, just keep going until one edge from the cast on to your needles measures the size you want, then decrease. This makes a square blanket, not a rectangular one.

The pattern is actually really easy. Thank goodness. lol

First Half

You cast on three stitches to start with. Then knit. Then you start with the pattern:
1st Row: (Right side) Inc in first st, k to last 2 sts, inc in next st, k1- 2 sts increased.
2nd Row: purl,
3rd Row: (Right side) Inc in First st, K to last 2 sts, inc in next st, K1.
4th Row: Knit.
And you keep doing this until you reach 131 sts.

Second Half

Row 1: Slip 1, K1, psso, K to last 2 sts, k2tog
Row 2: Purl
Row 3: Slip 1, K1, psso, K to last 2 sts, k2tog
Row 4: Knit
Do this until you have three sts left then you S2KP - 1 st remains. Fasten off. Weave in ends

Yes, it’s just garter stitch, so keep going on the first part until it’s the size you want, then dec.

Is that stockinette with purl ridges?

But yes, just keep going until it’s as big as you want it.
