Calculation of stitches and how to get there!
The pattern in the example of calculating the stitches is * knit one – purl one* . In this case the stitch pattern has 2 stitches. You want to end with the same stitch as you started, though that both sides of your work have the same pattern. Measure the width you want and estimate an approximate amount of stitches. The number has to be a multiply of 2 (stitch pattern) plus the amount of the half of the stitch pattern, which is here 1. Once you have your amount of stitches, you always have to add 2 more stitches for the edge stitches (one stitch on the beginning and one stitch on the end of a row).
