Divide number of rows by number of increases, take the closest lower and higher even numbers to this number.
(Total rows – (smaller even number*total incs))/2 = number of times to work decreases spaced over higher even number of rows.
Subtract this number from the total number of decreases to get the number of times to decrease at the lower rate.
The simplest way to deal with this is to pretend you’re doing magic loop. About halfway across the sleeve stitches pull the right needle tip to create a loop of the cable and carry on knitting.
Speaking of Stripy, I haven’t forgotten about the tutorial I just haven’t had a chance to work much on it. I need to do some more work on it to make sure it’s as clear as possible but the next update should go up tomorrow. Here’s how mine is progressing, so the tutorial clearly has some catching up to do. Sorry to anyone who’s waiting.
Edited because high school maths was a while ago and I’ve forgotten where to put brackets in an equation, it’s fixed now.
