Multiple on this pattern?

Question

I am starting this pattern http://com.yarnspirations.pattern-pdfs.s3.amazonaws.com/Bernat_Worsted001_cr_blanket.en_US.pdf and need help.

 

I would like to know what the multiple for this pattern is as I'd like to make it larger.  I try to figure it out and keep coming up with 3, or 3+1 and even 3+2.

 

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks.  I'll give it a try.  The trouble I'm running into is that this is the first pattern I've ever read that has Starting Chain, Foundation Row and Then row 1.

 

I'm not sure which rows I'm supposed to use to calculate for the multiple????

I think you will have to calculate it on row 1, since the foundation row gives you no hints. That sounds like it's just giving you something more solid than a chain to anchor the first pattern row.

I usually just chain how ever long I need it to be then on the 2nd row just undue the chains I don't need.  Here are some photos of what I am talking about.  Saves me from figuring out the multiples.  Oops not on the second row, just do how it shows on the blog and here is the right blog now, geesh my mind is gone today.  Mary

Since the pattern starts in row 1, not the foundation row, that method won't work. BUT if you do the beginning chain and the foundation row as one, then it will work. The way to do this is by using what are called foundation stitches, good tutorial here http://snuffykin.livejournal.com/43642.html You then can unpick the foundation sts if some are left over.

 

Tiniree, i think the multiple is 3 plus 1. At the beginning you have one st where you chain and make a dc, then at the end you skip two sts and dc in the third (last) st.

Thanks everyone! 

 

Kathy - I'm thinking you are correct (3+1)  I've read several different posts about how to figure out multiples and this is the formula that keeps coming up.

 

I think the way the pattern was written, what with the Starting ch, Foundation Row and THEN Row 1, it just confused me.

Ok that blog is not the best example but with the pattern they are doing I would just chain how ever long I want it then at the end of the foundation row I can udue the chains I don't need, that is how I do it but maybe I am loosing it today.  Mary

the problem is that at the end of the foundation row, you won't know how many stitches you need.  The stitch pattern starts in the row after that.

The multiple for your pattern is 3+5.
