    This is a great pattern but I found that on the last “7” stiches, I actually have 8. I made this up by doing 6 sc’s instead of 5. I’m wondering how many multiples of the chain should I do for a pretty nice adult blanket?

      I can not tell you that. It depends on how big you want to make it, what yarn you’re using, what hook you’re using, and at what gauge you crochet.

      You can add another stitch in your foundation chain, or crochet into one chain twice.
