My guess would be to chain 192 to start (160 x 1.2 = 192). I would repeat 2nd - 13th rows 11 times instead of the 9 times stated in the instructions - see below. 13th row: As 2nd row. Rep 2nd to 13th rows 9 times more, then 2nd to 5th rows once. Do not turn at end of last row. I hope this helps.

I want to increase the size of the finished afghan by approx. 20% and am not sure how to figure the correct number to chain to begin. Any suggestions or formulas to come up with the correct number will be much appreciated.
