It's beautiful but can you tell me what multiples to increase by to make it larger? Thanks. I don't know how old this post is, but could you reply to pinkcaddy7@yahoo.com? I'd really appreciate it. I've been looking for an appropriate "manly" type afghan to make for my grown son and I think he'd like this. Thanks so much. Viki T.
