A List of Knitting Calculators



Sometimes we just want to knit something simple and can get intimidated by the math. Have you heard of knitting calculators? Some knitters call them generators. Many wonderful people on the Internet have set these up free for you to use. These are very handy things to know about.

Here's a list of the ones I'm familiar with. If you have some great ones please share in the comments and I'll add them to the list.
