Math for Knitters – Casting-On (or Chaining) a Multiple of X + Y

Cast-on a multiple of 14 + 3? Or 12 + 8? Or any combination of numbers? What does that mean? Whether these instructions are for a cast-on number in knitting or a foundation chain number in crochet, I explain it here.

Information on things you’ll see in this video:

The pattern for the sweater I’m wearing (not my design, knit in a discontinued cotton yarn), can be found here.
