I want to add some sts to a pattern but not sure how
I made the Cable Wrap pattern from Lionbrand, I love it. I am going to make a second one. But I would like to make it wider. I don't know how to add stitches or were to add them.

It is Size 12 x 50 in. and I want to widen it maybe to 14x50in.

Here is the link to the pattern

http://www.lionbrand.com/patterns/60619A.html

any suggestions ?

If that's all you want to add the easiest way is you could more purl stitches around the cables and maybe another "stripe" between the cables. You could also add another cable to the center. I think I'd go with the purl and stripe part myself.

The cable repeat is 13 sts, so if you add another 13 and do an extra cable that should make it about 4" wider. If you need even more, then add 26 for 2 more repeats. If that's too many, then just add the 13 and do a few more purl sts too.

How would I add stitches to the two stripes to make it three stripes?
()xxx()
()xxx()
()xxx()

Do I ktbl, p1,ktbl, and then again ktbl, p1, ktbl and then the same on the (WS) With the ptbl, k1, ptbl ?That should give me the three stripes right?

The twisted rib stripes between the cables? They separate the cables, but you could put another one on one edge and begin or end with it, depending on where you want it. Or you could add an extra repeat of one between the cables. Not quite sure what you really mean.

Looking at the picture there are Three rows of cable the middle cable is flanked with two stripes . I want to make those two stripes on each side three stripes. How do I do that? How many cast on stitches will I need? 39?

and when I get to that part of the pattern do I ktbl ,p1, ktbl, repeat ktbl ,p1, ktbl, or do I have to do something different to make it look right for three stripes??

"P1, k tbl, p1, k tbl..."

Above is what it says for the stripes with your working the cable pattern at the end. What you could do is add another "p1, ktbl" so it would read -

"p1, ktbl, p1, k tbl, p1, ktbl..."

You could also add some extra purls in there if that wouldn't be wide enough...

"p2 ktbl, p2, k tbl, p2, ktbl..."

It will change the look of the shawl a little, but it would still look nice.

Okay, thanks for explaining. I think you would just need to add 2 sts on each side, only 4 more. It's only the ktbl that shows as the 'stripe', it makes the rib more prominent. So the RS rows would change to P2, k6, p2, k tbl, p1, k tbl, p1, ktbl (new sts in bold). The WS rows would be p tbl, k1 p tbl, k1, p tbl, k2, p6, k2. That would give you an extra twisted rib in each section between the cables.
