Counting Hard to See Stitches

We all know how important it is to do a gauge swatch, but sometimes your stitches can be hard to see. Knitting and crocheting with fuzzy yarn, ruffle yarn, or even just a super bulky yarn can make counting your stitches really tricky.

To make it easier, hold your project up to a window so the light can shine through. ┬áThis will allow you to see your stitches for easy counting!┬áJust make sure you don’t stretch your project, otherwise it will distort your stitch count.

    It would be difficult (for me anyway) to count without pointing to the stitches.

    Maybe a light table?
