With guidance from Lena, I used 24 as a multiplier. The original stitch count is 24x6144 and 144+3147. I wanted a shawl, so I went with 24x372 and 72+375. With a chain of 76 and a stitch count of 75, every section worked out beautiful to the design. I am loving this design and textures very much. Thank you Lena for your quick response to my question. It was so very helpful.

I think Lena is a wonderful instructor - the videos are precise and accurate. But I have to say that - like Alice F - I would like to know the multiplier for this pattern. In order to make the piece bigger or smaller with a different gauge... We paid for the pattern - why not share this information??? I can guess the number but I think putting the multiplier for each section would be in order and should be shared

Lena is a fantastic instructor. I enjoy crocheting with her videos. 5 star all the way although I give this class only 4 stars as there is no choice for left handed video as in the Annie's Kit Club tutorials. I look forward to starting my Gansey Style Afghan with Lena.

Can someone help me with the multiplier for this blanket so that I can make it wider?

Alice - we're sorry, but we aren't able to provide help with modifying or enlarging our patterns.
