Cast-on counts

Posted 19 Jul 2013 by JC

Here’s a handy new feature: The detail page for each stitch pattern now shows the pattern’s cast-on count. For example, the cast-on count for Fleurette is a multiple of 6 stitches, plus 7:

So, when a stitch map with 2 horizontal repeats is on display, the cast-on count is 2 × 6 + 7 or 19 stitches:

Note that this is just the cast-on count! The stitch count may change from row to row – as it does for Fleurette.

Also, on the Browse page, you can now search for stitch patterns with the same cast-on multiple:

How will you make use of this new feature?
