The ‘How Many…?’ Knitting Tool

  1. If I want to decrease 14 stitches over 6 inches - how many rows should I work between decreases?
  2. My pattern needs me to increase 13 stitches evenly over a row - how often do I increase?
  3. I want to knit something 13 inches wide - how many stitches do I cast on?
  4. I want to knit a piece 22.5 inches long - how many rows do I work?

Before you rush screaming for the calculator (or even worse, a paper & pencil), try these tools. The only extra thing you need to know is your current gauge (i.e. how many stitches and rows per inch you are knitting).

All measurements are in inches.
