Hey all.

I am abysmal at math so please be gentle with me! Hah!

Can anyone tell me how you figure out the multiples of a stitch count please? I’d like to make a blanket smaller.

If the multiple is 10 + 2 for example, the pattern stitch requires 10sts to be completed. Use that number to determine the number of sts you need for a given size. It can be any number divisible by 10. Once you know that number, add 2 to it and you have the cast on number of sts.

Do you have a particular pattern in mind?

If u tell us which pattern you’re interested in, we will be able to help u!!


Thank you both.

I don’t actually have a pattern in mind I just wondered if there might be a formula for working this out across all patterns.
