How many stitches should I cast on in order to make it into blanket? Johnny Vasquez I can’t tell you that. It is dependent upon a lot of factors. How tight you knit, what size yarn you’re using, what size needles you’re using, and what gauge you knit this pattern. You’ll need to do a gauge swatch, figure out your stitches per inch, then multiply that by the width of the blanket you want to make, then divide that by the cast on multiples to make sure you have an even number of repeats. If you do not, then add or subtract stitches until you do. does that make sense?
