knitting and math
posted by soe 2:09 am

Remember when your math teacher assured you that you’d use arithmetic in your life all the time and you really didn’t believe him or her? You thought you’d use a calculator or your fingers or whatever.

Well, your math teacher was right.

When measuring a swatch, when you align your first stitch at the 1″ mark and count until you get to the 4″ mark, you are NOT in fact measuring a four-inch section of your knitting.

That’s important to remember.

Apologies, math teachers everywhere…
