Congratulations!!  You now have a Rainbow Ridges Can Cozy!!

Alternations

To change the width of your project you need an even amount of stitches. When you get to row 5, you can add 2 increases evenly so you end up with a total of 32, then follow the directions just keeping in mind your count will be 32, not 30.  If you want it even larger, you can add an extra row after row 5 and sc 2 in a st, then sc in next 4… repeat around. With this increase you will end up with 36 sts.  Just keep in mind that will be row 6 and the following rows will all change-up by one number.  If you want your project taller,,, Just add more rows continuing to use rows 10 & 11 then finish off with row 22 for the last row.

Happy Crocheting!!
