I would say I’m an intermediate knitter, but am making my first sweater. I am looking at two different patterns and while they are both very basic I am confused about how many stitches I’m supposed to cast on.
For a 48" bust measurement one tells me to cast on 48 stitches. The other gives me the elusive measurement of:
3sts= 1" (chart sizes I don’t need) 48" 950
Is that 950 stitches? because in my estimate if 3 stitches equal 1" then 48" is 144 stitches.
I hope one of you lovely people can help me because I can’t get back to the knitting store for at least a week, and I’m really sick of knitting my holiday presents day in and day out.
Bright Blessings, Hilary
