“Increase stitches evenly across” – dreaded words when reading a knitting pattern.
If you have ever needed to decrease or increase stitches evenly while knitting and have a difficult time calculating how many stitches to leave between the increases or decreases, then you’re in luck! There’s a handy dandy calculator that I found online that can do the math for you and make your life so much easier.
If you go to this link – Knitting Stitch Calculator you can easily enter the number of stitches you have to what your final number of stitches need to be; both increase stitches or decrease stitches. It will even calculate how many rows to do the knitting increases or decreases.
As an added bonus, it will even calculate the knitting decreases required to make a standard sleeve. And all of this math is done for you at absolutely no charge. Who could ask for more!
I have used this page innumerable times ever since I found it and has saved me so much time from doing complicated math, that wasn’t right anyways, and having to frog everything I had done. The frustration it’s prevented is almost incalculable!
