GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS

GAUGE: Each Columbia-Minerva Instruction gives a Gauge or Scale of the number of stitches to the inch when using the yarn and needles called for. If you work tighter than the average, change to larger needles; if you work looser, change to smaller needles, to acquire the same number of stitches to the inch called for in the instructions.

ABBREVIATIONS USED IN KNITTING
AND CROCHETING INSTRUCTIONS

K – Knit                              sl – slip
P – Purl                              yo – yarn over
st – stitch                            ch – chain
oz – ounce                          sc – single crochet
dec – decrease                   dc – double crochet
inc – increase                      hdc – half double crochet
tog – together                     psso – pass slip stitch over
beg – beginning                  rem – remain
pat st – pattern stitch           St St – Stockinette Stitch

ASTERISKS(*-**): Star symbols indicate that work following thero is to be repeated. When instructions call for repeating a given number of times, it is understood that this is in addition to the original. Thus, repeat 5 times more means 6 times in all.

STOCKINETTE STITCH: K 1 row, P 1 row, alter­nately. On Circular or Sock Needles knit continuously.

TO INCREASE: K 2 sts in 1 st. (Knitting 1 st in the front and 1 st in the back of same st.)

TO DECREASE: K 2 sts together.

TO WORK EVEN: Work without increasing or de­creasing.

MOSS STITCH: Uneven number of sts.
Row 1 - *K 1, P 1, repeat from * across, ending K 1.

On even number of sts start every other row P 1, K 1.

FINISHING A NEW GARMENT

BLOCKING: Using rust-proof pins, pin each piece, wrong side out, on a pressing board in exactly the line you wish to retain. Use a damp cloth and mod­erately hot iron or a dry cloth and steam iron, press lightly, allowing the steam to go through the gar­ment. Lay it on a flat surface until thoroughly dry.

ASSEMBLING: Sew pieces together, being careful that the edges meet evenly and to match rows wher­ever possible. Press all seams on wrong side.

WASHING: Make suds in lukewarm water, using mild alkali free soap flakes. Squeeze suds through fabric. Do not rub. Handle gently, do not lift out of water, as the weight of the wet garment will stretch it. Keep garment supported by the hands when squeezing out water. Rinse thoroughly three times in lukewarm water. Squeeze out as much water as possible, do not twist or wring, and roll in dry turkish towels to absorb excess moisture. Shape gar­ment according to measurements and lay it on a turk­ish towel on a flat surface until thoroughly dry. Rib­bing should be eased in so that it will fit snugly as when new. Never dry in sun or excessive heat.
