I guess I should ask this other question.
This is what I am making.
It looks really small in the photo so I think I'm actually going to double up the pattern to make it twice as large. I shouldn't have any hassle in doing that if I increase the number of stitches to 176 from 88, right?
I figured this was a good, easy project to get back into the knitting groove. I'm not quite prepared for anything more than knits and purls at this point.
