GAUGE
Correct gauge is essential for proper size. Before beginning, your needle size given in instructions is merely a guide and should never be used without first making a sample swatch approximately 4" square in the stitch, yarn, and needles specified. Then measure it, counting your stitches and rows carefully. If you have more stitches per inch than specified, try again with larger needles, if fewer, try again with a smaller size. Keep trying until you find the size needle that will give you the specified gauge. DO NOT HESITATE TO CHANGE NEEDLE SIZE TO OBTAIN CORRECT GAUGE.

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. 1a).

After a purl stitch, before a knit stitch 
Take yarn over right hand needle to the back, so that it is now in position to knit the next stitch (Fig. 1b).

After a knit stitch, before a purl stitch
Bring yarn forward between the needles, then back over the top of the right hand needle and forward between the needles again, so that it is now in position to purl the next stitch (Fig. 1c)
