♥To make a larger blanket this is how you would change the pattern:
You would cast on a multiple of 4 extra stitches until you like the width.
For example; if you want the blanket to be about 4 inches wider you would
cast on about 16 more stitches (I am getting that number from the stitch
If you want the blanket to be about 8 inches wider you would cast on about
32 more stitches.
Then you would work the pattern until it is the length you want.
