 — work instructions following  as many more times as indicated in addition to the first time.

† to † — work all instructions from first † to second † as many times as specified.

( ) or [ ] — work enclosed instructions as many times as specified by the number immediately following or work all enclosed instructions in the stitch indicated or contains explanatory remarks.

colon (:) — the number(s) given after a colon at the end of a row or round denote(s) the number of stitches or spaces you should have on that row or round.

work even — work without increasing or decreasing in the established pattern.

GAUGE
Exact gauge is essential for proper fit. Needle size given in instructions is merely a guide and should never be used without first making a sample swatch approximately 4" (10 cm) square in the stitch, yarn, and needle specified. Then 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. If you have more rows per inch than specified, use a larger needle for the purl rows. If you have fewer rows per inch, use a smaller needle on the purl rows. 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" (7.5 cm) to be sure gauge remains consistent.

Knitting Needle Sizes

Skill Levels

Beginner - Projects for first-time knitters using basic knit and purl stitches. Minimal shaping.
Easy - Projects using basic stitches, repetitive stitch patterns, simple color changes, and simple shaping and finishing.
Intermediate - Projects with a variety of stitches, such as basic cables and lace, simple intarsia, double-pointed needles and knitting
in the round needle techniques, mid-level shaping and finishing.
Experienced - Projects using advanced techniques and stitches, such as short rows, fair isle, more intricate intarsia, cables, lace
patterns, and numerous color changes.

ZEROS
To consolidate the length of an involved pattern, Zeros are sometimes used so that all sizes can be combined. For example, decrease one stitch at each edge, every row, 0{6‑4} times means the first size would do nothing, the second size would decrease 6 times, and the largest size would decrease 4 times.

INCREASES
INCREASING EVENLY
ACROSS A ROW/ROUND
Add one to the number of increases required and divide that number into the number of stitches on the needle. Subtract one from the result and the new number is the approximate number of stitches to be worked between each increase. Adjust the number as needed.
Little Brother Onesie Body Suit (Google Affiliate Ad)
ADDING NEW STITCHES
Insert the right needle into stitch as if to knit, yarn over and pull loop through (Fig. 1a), insert the left needle into the loop just worked from front to back and slip the loop onto the left needle (Fig. 1b). Repeat for required number of stitches.

Adding New Stitches

KNIT INCREASE
Knit the next stitch but do not slip the old stitch off the left needle (Fig. 2a). Insert the right needle into the back loop of the same stitch and knit it (Fig. 2b), then slip the old stitch off the left needle.

Knit Increase

YARN OVER (abbreviated YO)
After a knit stitch, before a knit stitch
Bring the yarn forward between the needles, then backover the top of the right hand needle, so that it is now in position to knit the next stitch (Fig. 3a).

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. 3b).

Yarn Over

DECREASES
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. 4), then knitthem together as if they were one stitch.

Knit 2 Together

PURL 2 TOGETHER
(abbreviated P2 tog)
Insert the right needle into the front of the first two stitches on the left needle as if to purl (Fig. 5), then purl them together as if they were one stitch.

Purl 2 Together

SLIP 1, KNIT 1, PASS
SLIPPED STITCH OVER
(abbreviated slip 1, K1, PSSO)
Slip one stitch as if to knit (Fig. 6a). Knit the next stitch. With the left needle, bring the slipped stitch over the knit stitch (Fig. 6b) and off the needle.

Slip 1, Knit 1, Pass Slipped Stitch Over

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. 7a & b). 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.

Picking Up Stitches

WEAVING SEAMS
With the right side of both pieces facing you and edges even, sew through both sides once to secure the seam. Insert the needle under the bar between the first and second stitches on the row and pull the yarn through(Fig. 8). Insert the needle under the next bar on the second side. Repeat from side to side, being careful to match rows. If the edges are different lengths, it may be necessary to insert the needle under two bars at one edge.
