Increase a C2C square into a rectangle

C2C 102 Increase Your Square Into a Rectangle

If you would like to make a rectangle instead of a square then you continue to increase, but only on the side that you are increasing. Notice how the row on the increase side now ends on top of the previous rows increase block. If I was making a square I wouldn’t have added that last block to the row.

I would stop here for square
1 more block is needed if you are increasing

Continue increasing on the right side only until the piece is as long as you want it. Do not increase on the left. 

Row 11 Completed
Row 12 completed

When it is high enough then you stop increasing in the exact same manner as you would for a square.

Boxes show the increase C2C blocks. If you were to make it wider instead of higher then you would have more increase blocks across the bottom, not the side. The arrows show the direction of the row. The orange is going left to right and the yellows are moving right to left.
