One of the most common knitting questions that I am asked is how to resize a knit blanket, a washcloth or a towel. So, let's take a minute to review that process.
It's a relatively easy math equation, for which you need several variables:
The Gauge, the Desired Length, and the Stitch Multiple
2.5 X 25″ = 63.5/64 stitches PLUS 1.
5 X 25″ = 125 cast on stitches
5 X 25″ = 125 PLUS 1 = 126 cast on stitches
I hope these illustrations of the calculations will help you resize a knit blanket, washcloth or towel. If you do have further questions, absolutely let me know. I will gladly add to this post as needed.
