Helpful Hints WASHING INSTRUCTIONS: Bernat® Roving HAND WASH: Note measurements of the item before washing. Dissolve mild detergent in lukewarm water. Place the item in the suds and squeeze gently. Do not rub or leave to soak. Rinse twice in clean, lukewarm water. Remove excess moisture by rolling in a thick towel. DRYING FLAT: Do not wring, twist or hang to dry. Lay item on a flat surface away from lights, sunlight and excessive heat. While still damp, gently push item back to its original measurements. GAUGE: For best results, be sure to use the yarn recommended in the pattern, and purchase enough of one dye lot to complete your project. It is a good idea to retain ball bands in case of inquiry. Before you begin to knit, check your gauge by making a test swatch and adjusting your needle, if necessary, to obtain the gauge quoted in the pattern. Inaccurate gauge results in an item too large or too small. Even a variation of half a stitch makes an obvious difference in the finished size. DETERMINING YOUR SIZE Begin with your bust/chest measurement. Compare your measurement to the ‘To fit bust measurement’ size line in your pattern and choose the closest match. Bust Measurement (A) Using a tape measure, measure around the fullest part of your bust or chest keeping the tape measure straight across your back.

A

Hip Measurement (B) Measure around the fullest section which is generally 9 to 10 inches [23 to 25.5 cm] below the waistline.

B

C

Wrist to Underarm (C) Measure from the wrist along the inside of your arm to approximately 1 inch [2.5 cm] from your underarm crease. This is the measurement for a set-in sleeve.
