Reading Pattern Instructions
Before beginning a pattern, look through it to make sure you are familiar with the abbreviations and techniques that are used.
Some patterns may be written for more than one size. In this case the smallest size is given first and others are placed in parentheses. When only one number is given, it applies to all sizes.
You may wish to highlight the numbers for the size you are making before beginning. It is also helpful to place a selfsticking note on the pattern to mark any changes made while working the pattern.
