How many stitches to crochet a full size shell stitch afghans


Depends on the yarn and needle used. A large needle and/or large yarn will produce larger shell stitches requiring fewer shells to create an afghan:

How do I cast off in knitting?


Take a needle several sizes larger than the ones you have used for the knitting - so the loops will be larger and the edge looser, knit the first two stitches onto the larger needle then use the tip of the other needle to lift the first stitch over the second one and right off the needle, so it is looped over the second stitch, but is no longer on the needle.
Knit another stitch and repeat the lifting over. I f you are casting off all the stitches continue to the end of the row and then cut the yarn, pass the end of the yarn through the last stitch and draw it up.
If you are only casting off part of the row then move the last stitch onto the right size needle and continue knitting on the stitches left in the row.

I am knitting an afghan with Taku mi 13 needles.


are you working a pattern or is it a straight stitch like garter or stockinette?

I would make a stitch gauge sample with the smaller needles to see how many stitches per inch.
Figure out how many stitches you will need to match the width of the current piece.
Take that number and subtract the number of stitches you currently have with the size 13 needles. (new stitch count - original stitch count = difference)
Divide the original number of stitches by the difference.
that is how many stitches I would do between increases

Let me use an example:
Say your original work had 75 stitches
From the gauge sample you know you need 100 stitches to make the same width
100-75=25
Now divide 75 by 25=3
Ffter every third stitch, I would put in an increase
that way the increases should work evenly across your piece.

This will be more challenging if you are working a pattern but the goal is to work the increases in as evenly as possible with as little impact as possible on the pattern being knitted. That might mean doing 2 increases every 6 stitches because it fits the pattern better.

good luck.

Knittin a baby cardie. Pattern says to knir and purl 11 stitches n turn. This to b done 5 times. I gav 5 sections of 11 stitches on each side. Some stitches left. Told to cast off. Do i jus cast off...


I am guessing that you were knitting the arm hole on the sweater. You should have cast off the remaining stitches beyond the 11 when you came to them. If you cast off each area separately, you should be okay. Cast of the 11, cut and tie you thread, the cast off the remaining stitches.
