Do you make a stitch to add stitches when picking up and knitting 124 on the 62 cast off and on stitches doing ruffle?

Put ruffles on anything and I am there. The instructions for both the main part of the blanket and the ruffles look easy to follow. If you wanted you could do the ruffles in a difficult color or something a little darker than the main color. It will look lovely. Thank you for the pattern.

If I am picking up stitches on the cast off/on edge and there are 62, how do I pick up stitches and knit to make it 124?

Bernat Soft Boucle recommended for this blanket is apparently discontinued. Please suggest a substitute.

This is a delicate looking blanket! I can't believe it is done in chunky yarn, and I really like the ruffle around the edge. The pattern is super easy to follow. Does anyone think it could be converted to worsted weight yarn for a lighter blanket? I understand I would just have to do more stitches for the body, but what would it do to the ruffle?

What a pretty and delicate looking blanket. This seems like it would be an easy initial pattern to tackle.
