Need help with stitch count for a baby blanket i'm making please
I just registered today here, although I have used this website as reference many times....
Would someone advise me as to the number of stitches to cast on for a baby blanket I want to make:
First, I dont have a pattern for the actual blanket.. I have a Vine lace knit pattern, that calls for multiples of 9 plus 4.
Here is the lace design pattern:
Rows 1 and 3: Purl
Row 2: K3 *yo, k2, ssk, k2tog, k2, yo, k1 Rep from * across, end k1
Row 4: K2, *yo, k2, ssk, k2tog, k2, yo, k1 Rep from * across, end k2
So, Could I c/o say 130 stitches ( 9x14 = 126 plus 4 equals 130) ?
I tried this already and I was not ending with either k1 or k2. It was uneven...
I am thinking somewhere around 40-50 inches wide, bor a baby blanket..
