Yarn, fiber content, stitch count

I was reading Benjamin Krudwig’s  post this morning and decided to use his idea for my post today.  He discussed how many stitches we knit (or crochet) in an item and I thought it was a bit of information necessary on the tag I include with all my knitted items along with the yarn used, fiber content, and washing instructions.

I keep track of each row I knit and it wouldn’t be hard to figure out how many stitches are in the finished piece…not counting the seams.  I think this information would be interesting to include when gifting or even selling a hand-knitted item.

What do you think?

  1. I think this is a great idea! I don’t think I have any idea how many stitches go into a project. I think I’d be quite surprised.

    I just came across your blog after you kindly left a comment on mine (about the washcloths looking like Neopolitan ice cream. I love that! And now I am craving it! We ate it all the time as kids.)

    Nice to meet you! 🙂


Your thoughts? I read them all.
