I have been wanting to knit the Lace Kitchen Curtain from KnitPicks for a long time. The problem is the math, I hate math and when I do have to do it, most of the time it is wrong. The measurements for the one in the pattern is "Approximately 48” x 15”, excluding hem" and the measurements on my back door window are 26" wide and 39" long, I am not worried about the length, it is the width that is getting me. The pattern says to cast on 198 stitches but that is a 48 inch wide curtain and mine is only 26 (I just tried to figure it out in my head and I think I heard a pop!). The pattern repeat is 10 stitches plus 4 if that helps.
Can anyone be so kind as to help me figure out how many stitches to cast on please?
