[] Row 2: knit 1, knit into front and back of next st. Three sts
[] Row 3: knit 1, knit into front and back of next st, knit to end of row
[] Continue this way (like Row 3) until the side of the blanket from the cast-on corner to the needle, measures either 20 inches, 22 inches or 24 inches, depending on which of the 3 options you have chosen to knit.
[] Next row: knit 1 row .
[] Next row: knit 1, knit 2 together, knit to end of row.
