Row 1: Knit
Row 2: Purl
Row 3: K1 *Make knot, K3* repeat from * to last 4 stitches, make knot, K1

Hello! How can I make the width wider without ruining the pattern? Could I do multiple of 8 + 5?

Brittany Acosta - the multiple is 6+5, so you need to use any multiple of 6. For example, 36 (multiple of 6) + 5 = 41 stitches. As long as you use a multiple of six, the pattern will work.

If you're decreasing ever three rows when making the knots how can you use this pattern? I guess I missing how you pick the stiches back up.

The stitch count remains constant because even though you are working three stitches together, you are making three new stitches at the same time.
