how to figure decreases evenly
I am making a sweater and have 134 sts. I need to decrease 24 stitches evenly on the next row. When I divide 24 over 134 it =5.583. so it is not an even number. how do I figure in the last 14 sts? that is, how do I figure out where to do the decreases? Sorry, but math is not my strong point
Thank you,
Jeannette

You can alternate between decreasing every 5 and every 6 sts, or use this calculator.
