so i promised my friend a pair of these nifty armwarmers
, and i've regretted having made this promise about a trillion times. i just can't get the calculations!!!! the numbers come out astronomically big for armwarmers. please check out what i have and tell me what i'm doing wrong (math never really was one of my strongest points...)
so here we have:
A =22,5 centimeters = 9 (it's not very helpful that where i live we measure in cm's, while the pattern is in inches - all the more math! (1 cm = 2,54 in) but i've checked those conversions a hundred times, and the round-ups are insignificant)
B = 34,5 cm =13,6''
C = 14,5 cm =6
D=A x stitch gauge = 9 x 24 = 216
E= B x row gauge = 13,6 x 38 ~ 517
F= C x stitch gauge = 6 x 24 = 144
G= D-F = 216 - 144= 72
H= G/2 = 72/2 = 36
I = (E-10)/H = (517-10)/36 = 507/ 36 ~14
J= (E-10) - (I x H) = (517-10) - (14 x 36) = 507 - 504 = 3
whew. a lot of numbers.
i REALLY want to make those armwarmers, so if someone could do the math right for me i would love you forever!!!!!
p.s. i've checked the gauge too, mine is even a little smaller that required, so it's obvious that there's something wrong with my calculations.
