A Fine Day

Last week, on our regular spinning day, I took the day off work so that I could enjoy our year-end outing. The ladies usually like to plan a little trip somewhere to spin and have lunch. This year, we travelled about an hour south of the city to a small farm of a lady that is also a spinner. It was a lovely day, with sunshine and gorgeous blue skies! We haven't seen that for ever so long.

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?
