GAUGE
Exact gauge is essential for proper size or fit. Before beginning your project, make a sample swatch in the stitch, yarn, and needles specified. After completing the swatch, measure it, counting your stitches and rows carefully. If your swatch is larger or smaller than specified, make another, changing needle size to get the correct gauge. Keep trying until you find the size needles that will give you the specified gauge. Once proper gauge is obtained, measure width of piece approximately every 3” to be sure gauge remains consistent.
ZEROS
To consolidate the length of an involved pattern, zeros are sometimes used so that all sizes can be combined. For example, K4{0-1} means size Small would K4, size Medium would do nothing, and size Large would K1.
KNIT 2 TOGETHER (abbreviated K2 tog)
Insert the right needle into the front of the first two stitches on the left needle as if to knit (Fig. 1), then knit them together.
Fig. 1

YARN OVERS 
After a knit stitch, before a knit stitch 
Bring the yarn forward between the needles, then back over the top of the right hand needle, so that it is now in position to knit the next stitch (Fig. 2).
Fig. 2

KNIT 3 TOGETHER (abbreviated K3 tog)
Insert the right needle into the front of the first three stitches on the left needle as if to knit (Fig. 3), then knit them together.
Fig. 3

KNIT INCREASE
Knit the next stitch but do not slip it off the left needle (Fig. 4a). Instead, knit into the back of the same stitch (Fig. 4b), then slip it off the left needle.

PICKING UP STITCHES
When instructed to pick up stitches, insert the needle from the front to the back under two strands at the edge of the worked piece (Figs. 5a & 5b). Put the yarn around the needle as if to knit, then bring the needle with the yarn back through the stitch to the right side, resulting in a stitch on the needle.
Repeat this along the edge, picking up the required number of stitches.
A crochet hook may be helpful to pull yarn through.

CROCHET STITCHES
CHAIN (abbreviated ch)
Bring the yarn over the hook from back to front and draw through loop on hook (Fig. 6).
