Sad CampKIP story

Oh Knit Dr
Changing the numbers in a pattern to be able to use whatever yarn you want to use!
Take the number of stitches you are supposed to have in the pattern and divide it by stitches per inch (gauge the pattern has) then multiply that number by the number of stitches per inch you have with your yarn (after knit up swatch).  You now have the number of stitches you should have!
Pattern says CO 40; sts/in are 4 (divide 4 into 40) you now have 10 (multiply by sts/in you have, lets say 6) you will get 60 - so your cast on is now 60.
let me know if you have any questions!

Round & Round 
needs to practice and build confidence again!
