How in the world do I calculate this?
I am mathematically challenged when it comes to directions like this:

Pick up 191 stitches evenly.

The piece is the waistband on Broderie and is blocked to 32". I do not know how to calculate the proper spacing for picking up.

Can anyone please help? Here is the waistband

What you can do is mark the piece at the halfway measurement, then 1/4, and even 1/8 and pick up 1/4 or 1/8 the sts between the markers.
