The number of stitches you need per inch depends on the type of fabric you are sewing. The weight, thickness and type of fabric sewn will determine the stitch length you use.

You use a gauge or tape measure and count how many stitches per inch.It may not be a whole number, though.Example:You may have 4 1/2 stitches per inch. If you wanted to know how many stitches you needed to cast on for the desired measurement, you would multiply the number of stitches per inch by the number of inches you needed.Example II:If you neede a garment to finish at 40 inches, you would be making two pieces, with each being 20 inches.Example III:So if you had 4 1/2 inches per stitc, you would multiply this by 20 inches and you would need to cast on 90 stitches, adding 2 stitches for sewing so a total of 92 stitches for each side. This would be a total of 92 stitches per side.

That depends on your gauge. I have a pair of socks on my needles right now. My gauge for these socks is 11 stitches per inch. 44 stitches in that gauge would be 4 inches.

Measure 4 inches on your piece of knitted work then count the number of stitches (including partials!). Why? Because gauge determines the actual size of your piece.

Change the gauge to 4 1/2 stitches per inch and your sweater balloons to 44.4" around.
