Pattern says to cast on 31 so I know its going to be a number + extra. Can someone please help me figure it out. I counted 15 sts but 31/15= 2 and a remainder. Row 1: SL1P, K2, (P2, K2) 3 times, P1, (K2, P2) 3 times, K3 Row 2: SL1P, K1, (P2, K2) 3 times, P3, (K2, P2) 3 times, K2

I would increase by multiples of 8 sts by increasing those repeats as many times as you would like for the width you want. For example: Row 1: SL1P, K2, (P2, K2) 4 times, P1, (K2, P2) 4 times, K3 Row 2: SL1P, K1, (P2, K2) 4 times, P3, (K2, P2) 4 times, K2

Thanks, but what i meant was that I want to cast on more than just 31 without twitching the pattern. Im trying to make my scarf wider 'cause i'm working with a yarn weight thats less bulkier than the pattern requested.

Like this - Row 1: SL1P, K2, (P2, K2) 3 times, P1, (K2, P2) 3 times, P1 (P2, K2) 3 times, P1, (K2, P2) 3 times K3 Well.. now I'm not sure how many you'd cast on and if this would work with the second row. Need to think on this.. __________________ Jan When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it. NEW! KH knitting video archive ~HOW TO POST A PHOTO~

Row 2 would be repeated after the p3 and end with the k2. __________________ sue- knitting heretic
