In this particular sample, this is one of the sample ones that I did and I am just going to tell you that I really start, go to look to this pattern, that’s why it took me so long to get on board. And the reason for it is that I ended up with the start where one side—if you look at the star, this is supposed to be even. You notice that the one star is like the one side is longer than the other. And the reason for it is that I was misunderstanding the actual concept of how to get the sides to grow properly. And what I realized is that you need to pay attention right in the very beginning to make sure that the actual start is growing proportionally with each other.
I found myself actually making me a list of actual numbers from going two, four, six, eight, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18 and 20 so that I made sure that I was following it. And now once I got with the comfortable with the pattern, I stop counting and realize that the blanket is now growing proportionally. And the reason for it is that every time you go around once, you’re actually increasing the stitch count by 20. So, in the next, there will be 20 more stitches and it will be growing right in the tip areas because in the bottom part it doesn’t grow down here.
So, what we need to do is pay attention to how we’re sticking our beginning section right in here because it was done wrong right in this step where I am about to show you next. So, this is where you need to pay attention because if you screw up here, as it gets bigger, it’s going to be very noticeable like this.
