Picking up stitches over a long distance
Well, I'm almost finished with that sweater. I have to pick up stitches down the left front, across bottom all around and up the right side, 97 stitches on each of the fronts, forgot for now how many at bottoms. My problem is trying to evenly space the stitches. One side measures 20 1/2 inches and the other side 21 inches, there is bottom sideways ribbing which is probably stretched more on one side. Anyway, what's a good way to mark points or keep the sides/bottoms more or less stable so stitches are fairly even. I'm not shooting for perfect, I just want to finish this garment. I've started a couple of times but my markers and stitches started looking uneven. I need help. It's only four rows but I'm at a standstill. HELP!
