Question
If pattern calls for chain say 139 but I want to make it longer how do I add on count wise

Answer
Lois:

Thanks for the question.

This will depend on the repeat of the pattern. So an example: if the pattern has a repeat of 8 stitches, then you can increase by 8, because this will accommodate the repeat.

Hopefully this will help.

Happy Hooking
