Help with a pattern
I have a pattern for a throw, that when finished, should measuer 96" x 140". In stockinette stitch, 20 stitches and 20 rows = 4". How many stitches do I need to cast on and how many rows do I have to knit to make this blanket? I have been trying for the past hour to figure this out and cannot. Any and all help will be appreciated!

if there are 20 stitches in 4 inches, then the 96 inches would be how many stitches? 96/4 = 24, so it would be 24 repeats of the 20 stitches or 480

that does not seem correct, what size needles and yarn are you using?

no problem, I think I would make the edge stitches garter, so that it won't curl, is it colorwork? those measurements make it as big as a king size bed!
