    Could you please tell me what is the Multiple of this pattern? In this pattern it says to chain 156 and that gives me 38 repeats for 32″ If I took the 156 and added 1/2 that amount again to make 234 chains to work that should give me 57 repeats? I obviously want to increase the width but I’m not sure if I am even close to correct in my figures. Please help. Thanks in advance. Barb

    This pattern was given to me from my aunt. So I asked my crochet group on facebook and I got two answers, maybe this will help you. 156-4 (the number that you skip before the first stitch) = 152. 152/38 =4. As long as you chain in multiples of 4, plus the 4 needed for the first stitch, you will be fine. or 156-3 for your 1st ch 3. 152 ch + 76 ch = 228 +3 = 231 ch. That’s what I come up with
