I would like to make this smaller, what is the pattern multiple? tia.

I decided to make it 42" wide, so this is how I calculated chain length needed 156 (chains) divided by 51 (width), which came out to 3.058 then I multiplied that number by 42 (desired width) and got 128.47. Went with the 128 chain length. This may not be the exact calculation method, but it worked for me...hope it work for you!
