More than 50000 stitches

Posted on Updated on

I’ve just been trying to add up how many times I’ve fed the hook through the yarn (not including any mistakes and undoings along the way). It makes my head spin!

I cast on 250 stitches.

Two rows of single crochet makes 750 stitches.

Then 51 rows of double treble stitch (250 x 4 x 51) makes 51750

Adding 3 loops and two loops round every other end makes 51875

I think!

And not even one third through this project.

Who else takes time to count stitches sometimes?

And look who thought he was helping today, my furry friend Mercury.

    Gosh, that is a lot of stitches! Fortunately you had a great helper 🙂

    Yes and luckily he knows how to ‘help’ from nearby rather than to sit on my yarn !
