One thing I found helpful watching a Knitty Gritty episode was picking up stitches when you don’t pick up the exact number that has already been knit, for example let’s say there are 90 stitches around a neckline, including front, back and sides and the pattern says to only pick up let’s say 70. The program suggested taking pieces of yarn or stitch markers and counting off stitches, like 10 at a time, then marking between each ten. You can then do the math and figure out how many to pick up then to skip etc. I have only been knitting sweaters for about a year, but I use this method so that my neckline always comes out even and straight.
