    Hi
    Can I ask a question? I’m sure it will be an obvious when explained.
    Can you please explain the crochet multiple of 4+3=96+3= 99
    I would like to make this blanket a bit larger but the crochet multiple isn’t making much sense to me atm
    Thanks in advance
    Cheers Gina

    Hi, such a pretty stitch, ideal for self patterning yarn. After rows1 to 6 do I then repeat rows 3,4,5&6 ? Thanks for sharing your wonderful patterns
