Is there a guide somewhere that shows what the stitch abbreviations mean and how to make the stitch? how do you do a slip stitch (sts) while you are making a chain? as this pattern calls for in the first row?

Sorry the (sts) I was referring to is in the gauge part of the pattern.

Would anyone know how I could figure out the multiple of this pattern? I'd like to make it a bit larger. If not I'll just make lots of extra chains and untie and undo the extras. Either way, it's a very nice pattern.

Lacey, did you ever figure out the repeat? I, too, would like to make this larger as a gift for my son.

While I am just a beginner, I have crocheted enough to know that when adding extra length what I do is I measure how wide I want it with my beginning chain, ig the pattern calls for working stitches and chain then work more stitches, I figure how many are suggested in the pattern's row 2 and then add how many stitches will be needed to lengthen row 2 and have it come out right at the end... say if you dc 10 ch 2 dc 10 all the way across then you want to lengthen the afghan by 30 stitches you would actually have to increase it by what it takes to make each section come out correct. I hope that helps.
