The most important of all the Hot Tips

The most important of all the Hot Tips

This came up in one of my classes last week, and it really can’t be said often enough: If you want your knitting to turn out a particular length/height dimension, don’t measure it! So today I’d love for you to give this post a read: Count, don’t measure. And share it with your friends!

  1. so true. some yarn is just hard to measure. sometimes you stretch things weird so one piece gets measured with one measurement and the other you may think you have the same measurement til you start seaming…not that that recently happened or anything.

  3. Thanks for the reminder of this. I’m in the process of counting rows but mainly due to a change from the pattern gauge into mine. I need to add more rows but how do I adjust the decreases in a raglan without throwing the stitch count right out. The pattern asks for a decrease on every right-side row but if I do this I won’t have the yoke depth. Can I decrease at every 2nd right-side row?
