Multiples are basically taking 6 multipled by a multiple of 6

example

 Quote: 6 x 4 = 24
You can do this with ANY number. Take the number and multiply it by a multiple of that number.

HTH and that I wasn't too confusing

A multiple of 6 plus 5 would be any multiple of 6, plus 5 more stitches, so 6 x 2 + 5, or 6 x 3 + 5, etc. __________________ "Trust the pattern!"
