I want to knit this blanket (pattern is linked at bottom of the first post) http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=86155.0
My problem is that when I tried to knit the first part of the seed stitch border, I realized the blanket was a lot smaller than the pattern said (I know, I know... swatching is your friend, lol). However, all I have is bernat satin yarn. The needles called for on the label (5mm) are just too large in my opinion, so I need to figure out how to enlarge the pattern.
It measured a little over 22 inches wide when I used size 5 needles (well, one size 5, one size six- knitpicks is working on that for me, lol). If I could figure out what one pattern repeat was for each smocked section, I guess I could work it out somehow. I am just new to this stuff and haven't yet worried about gauge and all that, so I am not sure what to do or were to start!
