This wrap is knit from end to end. To change the length simply work additional or fewer repeats of Chart 3, which measures about 6”/15 cm, or change the number of repeats for Charts 1 &/or 2, which are 3”/7.5 cm each, making sure you work the same number of repeats of each before and after Chart 3. If you want to change the width, change the cast on by a multiple of 18 (2 chart pattern repeats). Each 18 sts cast on adds or subtracts 2.75”/7 cm to/from the finished width. If you increase CO by 18 sts; on Chart 3 work the first 19 sts, then repeat box 3 times and then the last 17 sts. If you decrease the CO be 18; on Chart 3 work the first 19 sts, then repeat box 2 times and then the last 17 sts. For the other charts just increases or decrease the number of repeats.
