I have a pattern for a throw, that when finished, should measuer 96" x 140". In stockinette stitch, 20 stitches and 20 rows = 4". How many stitches do I need to cast on and how many rows do I have to knit to make this blanket? I have been trying for the past hour to figure this out and cannot. Any and all help will be appreciated! :?? :oo:
if there are 20 stitches in 4 inches, then the 96 inches would be how many stitches? 96/4 = 24, so it would be 24 repeats of the 20 stitches or 480
that does not seem correct, what size needles and yarn are you using?
Size 9 needles and the yarn is worsted 4??
ok give me a second to dig out the 9’s and work it out
Thank you so much! This is truly driving me crazy!
is there a stitch pattern, or is it all worked stockinette?
that’s about what I get, too, so I guess it is 480, that is one huge throw!
It’s all stockinette! I guess its gonna be a really big throw! Thank you for your help
no problem, I think I would make the edge stitches garter, so that it won’t curl, is it colorwork? those measurements make it as big as a king size bed!
It’s also going to curl into a tube in all stockinette. Do about 5 or 6 rows of garter stitch after the cast on and before binding off, then the same number of sts in knit on the beginning and end of the WS rows.
Is there a reason to make it that big? Most throws are about 40-45" wide by 60-70" long. Maybe the dimensions are in cm which makes it about 38x55".
