Once thisis done itis perfectly safe to cut. ‘The same method may be used to open buttonholes on the fastening of a garment, if they have been forgotten as the knitting is worked. They should be over-stitched with silk thread. MO pons ———— SSS SSS how to read a pattern , Always add to the number of stitches given, one or more stitches at either end of the needle for selvedge. In ordinary knitting, one row means the number of stitches on one needle. The knitting of these same stitches on a second needle (on the wrong side of the work) is the second row. In circular knitting on three or four needles a row is a complete round. The not count as a row. The first row (Row 1) is therefore the row knitted on the cast-on stitch ‘the first row on the RIGHT side of the work. All “uneven" row: all “even" rows the wrong side. No mention is made in any pattern of the extra stitches cast on for the selvedge. The number of stitches between 2 asterisks are to be repeated as many times as necessary to obtain a given measurement. In other words, it is necessary to cast on a multiple of the given number, plus the selvedge stitches. sting on stitches do It is (unless otherwise stated) re on the right side of the work, and 1st Example: *k 3, p 3 * will mean: cast on a multiple of 6 (e.g. 66 sts.) plus one selvedge st. at either end of the needle. 68 + 2=68 sts. When working certain stitch patterns it is necessary to add a few sts. to the given number to obtain symmetry in the design. Thus the stitches given before and after the asterisks are required to make the pattern matching at either end; they must be added to the multiple of the figure between the asterisks. 2nd Example: Diamond shaped: seed stitch. 1st row: k4.*p1.k 7. *p 1. k 4. will mean that you should cast on a multiple of 8 (1 + 7) plus 9 stitches (4 + 1 + 4) plus the selvedge sts. This explanation is equally valid for technical reasons in the case of “made” sts. (wool round needle) which are not taken Into account when working out the number of stitches to cast on. 3rd Example: * k 4. k 2 tog. m 1 (make one) * k 4, will mean: Cast on a multiple of 6 (4 + 2) plus 4 sts. The brackets ( _) indicating a join, will be used every time that an identical combination of stitches is repeated In the same row between 2 asterisks. 4th Example: * k 5 wrn (k 1. p 2 tog. p 1) twice, ete. 4
