I am an extreme novice, but I made an afghan a few years ago (that almost killed me), so I am going to ask this to hopefully save myself endless hours of trying to figure this out. Is there an easy way to adjust this pattern so it is a tad bigger? I would like it to be closer to 42-48". Thanks for any help you can offer!

As the pattern is worked in sets of 4 stitches k2,P2 I think it would work fine to add stitches in groups of 4 to the required width or you could increase the border and add extra knit stitches on either side and at the beginner guide and end of the blanket which would give you a wider border, this may look better if the overall blanket is going to be larger. Hope this helps and good luck if you decide to take on the project.

I love that juicy watermelon pink, its glorious. This is a super simple and easy to memorize pattern in a nice size for baby. Its not so big that its an endless project and its a perfect way for beginning knitters to take their skills up a notch.
