Purple rain sweater cowl

Fellow knister's, this purple rain sweater cowl has just jumped off the needles. It was knitted from Rowan big wool, using size 13 for the ribbing and 15 for the body itself. I for went the original bind off, as I wanted the bind off to be very elastic, I tinkered around with it until I was pleased with the results. The bind off was as follows, knit 2 tog pass the k2 tog back to the right needle, and k 2 tog thru the back loop to the end, it was as I invesioned, I could not ask for a better knit!
As always happy knitting,
-RJ.

Converting a afghan pattern

Can anyone help me with doubling a pattern? I want to use up a ton of scrap yarn! The pattern says to cast on 137 stitches with the first and last 4 stitches being in seed stitch. I know this forms the seed stitch border. The zigzag pattern is 16 + 1.. I want to cast on 274 stitches. And double the border from 4 to 8 stitches. My concern is the zigzag pattern that is in between the border? Will this be enough stitches to come out even? Thanks, Rick.
