Pattern Notes

The blanket is worked from the bottom-up in rows and the number of stitches alternate. Use stitch markers to keep track of pattern repeats as stitches increase and decrease back to original stitch count. To change width of the blanket, change cast-on by multiple of 7 sts, and work more or less rows to adjust length.
