What's the pattern repeat?
I'm going to make this wrap, but I'm going to use slightly thicker yarn and larger needles, so what I'm basically going to be doing is adjusting how many stitches I need to cast on and how many row repeats I need to do. In order to do that, I need to know how many stitches this pattern spans over to be able to cast on the right number of stitches.

I thought it was 15 with a two stitch garter stitch border on each side, but that doesn't work out mathematically. Any help?

I think the pattern repeat is 14 + 5.
