August Reboot Series - A List of Knitting Calculators


This month I'm going to be doing some re-posting of older blog posts with occasional updates. I hope to have all new interviews every Friday but many Pros take the month of August off and in past years I haven't always been able to get enough interviews back to fill all the August dates.  (As predicted I sent out a much higher number than usual of interview invitations but I don't yet have a new one to post.) 

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.
