This pattern is incorrect, starting with Row 3. If you follow the directions, you are left with 7 stitches unaccounted for before the last K5. It is too early in the pattern for me to figure it out, so I'm just going to rip it out and use a different pattern.

I JUST LOVE THIS WEBSITE, AND I LOVE THIS SATIN CRADLE BLANKET. I AM GOING TO MAKE THIS FOR MY MOTHER IN LAW FOR A THROW BLANKET FOR HER 90th BIRTHDAY. MY QUESTION IS: I WANT TO IN CREASE THE SIZE BUT I AM UNSURE HOW TO DO THIS. FIRST OF ALL, IS IT POSSIBLE? DO I JUST KEEP ADDING STITCHES WHEN I CAST ON UNTIL I GET THE SIZE I WANT? I WANT IT BIG ENOUGH FOR A WOMAN WHO IS ON THE LARGER SIZE. AND HELP WOULD BE MUCH APPRECIATED. THANKS AND HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND. AMY ROSSOW
