Knitting Increase Calculator – Accurate & Easy Tool

This tool helps you calculate even increases for your knitting projects.

How to Use the Knitting Increase Calculator

Enter the total number of stitches in your project, the total number of rows, and the number of increases you wish to make. Click the “Calculate” button to compute the frequency of increases needed throughout your project.

How It Calculates the Results

The calculator divides the total number of rows by the number of increases. The result tells you how often you should make an increase. For example, if you need to add 5 increases over 50 rows, the calculator will tell you to increase every 10 rows.

Limitations

This calculator assumes that the increases are distributed evenly throughout the project. It does not account for edge cases or patterns that require a more complex increase strategy.

Use Cases for This Calculator

Calculate the Number of Stitches to Increase in a Row

Enter the total number of stitches you have and the percentage increase you want. The calculator will determine how many stitches you need to increase in your knitting row to meet your desired percentage.

Adjust the Number of Increase Rows

If you want to evenly distribute increases over several rows, input the total number of increases needed and the total number of rows. The calculator will help you evenly distribute increases per row.

Determine the Increase Placement

By specifying the total number of stitches and the number of increases, you can find out the placement for each increase. This will help you plan where to place the increases in your knitting project.

Calculate Increase Frequency

If you want to increase stitches at regular intervals, input the total number of stitches and the frequency of your increases. The calculator will help you determine how often to increase stitches.

Adjust Increase Rate

Specify the total number of stitches and the total percentage increase. The calculator can adjust the increase rate to ensure you reach the desired total number of stitches after the increase.

Calculate Total Stitches After Increases

If you know the starting number of stitches and the total percentage increase, input these values to find out the final number of stitches after the increases have been made.

Plan for Decreases After Increases

If you need to decrease stitches after increasing, use the calculator to plan for both. Input the total number of stitches, the increase percentage, and the decrease percentage to get accurate results.

Calculate Decrease Placement

Input the total number of stitches and the number of decreases needed to determine the placement for each decrease after increasing your stitches. This will help you plan the entire row effectively.

Adjust Increase for Pattern Repeat

If you have a pattern repeat and need to increase within that repeat, input the total number of stitches in the repeat and the percentage increase to ensure the pattern remains consistent.

Estimate Yarn Usage After Increases

By inputting the total number of stitches, yarn weight, and gauge information, the calculator can help you estimate how much yarn you will need for your project after the increases.
