      Hi Linda,
      It all depends on how large you’d like to make the blanket. The repeated part of the pattern is 11 stitches and there are an extra 3 stitches for the selvage. So if you cast on any multiple of 11 plus 3 then the pattern will work. Making a swatch of at least 25 sts is probably the best way to work it out. Just remember not to measure the first two and last st when you measure for gauge.

    I can’t get a consistent stitch count either. I notice from the written pattern that during the repeat we decrease two stitches and then increase two stitches which cancel each other out so your stitch count would remain the same. We are also instructed make a YO at each edge, but there are no decreases. Could this be why the stitch count is off?

      The pattern is correct as it is. The yo at the beginning is balanced out at the end of the row. I double checked it with a stitch map just to make sure.
