Example: 88 stitches would be a multiple of 8 (88/8 = 11) as would 48 stitches (48/8=6). Multiple of 8 + 5 would simply be a number divisible by 8 and then add 5 more. __________________ Mason What do you mean guys don't knit? Linux: because a PC is a terrible thing to waste.

Yep, that's it. The 8+5 thing would be 13, or 16+5 or 24+5 or 88+5 etc.
