Tee for Two pattern - HELP!
Tee For Two by Helene Rush - anybody familiar with it? Am supposed to pick up & knit 78 stitches along side of a panel that is 109 rows long. Since this works out to be approx. every 1.4 sts , how do I do this? I'm mathematically challenged!

You can pick up two and skip one all the way and that should work out pretty well.

One thing I do is to tie a small piece of yarn at each quarter-of-the-way measurement to make sure I get an even number of stitches in each section.

Is this your pattern? The general rule for picking up stitches at the ends of rows is 3 stitches for every 4 rows, so that works out about right.
