Increasing stitches

Hello my fellow knitters,

I have a question that i hope someone can help me with. When a pattern says to increase a certain amount of stitches evenly how do i go about doing that. :shrug: Do I have to do some sort of calculations? :think:

For example the pattern says increase 7 stitches evenly.

Your help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

They don’t have to be absolutely perfectly even, but here’s a calculator.

I use the calculator posted by Ingrid or this one for almost all increases. Makes it really simple. http://www.fromthehartle.freeservers.com/KnittingPatterns/EvenIncreaseCalculator.html

Thanks for all the helpful suggestions. I greatly appreciate all of your assistance.

Thanks again. :woot:
