Helpful Hints WaShIng InSTRUCTIonS: Bernat® Softee Chunky Machine wash. Machine dry. Machine Wash: Wash the item, preferably on its own, in water (not exceeding 40°C / 104°F) at permanent press setting. Softener may be added to the final rinse. Do not use bleach. Do not dry-clean. Machine Dry: Tumble dry at low heat, at delicate setting. Do not iron or press. 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/Chest Measurement (a) Using a tape measure, measure around the fullest part of your bust or chest keeping the tape measure straight across your back. hip Measurement (B) Measure around the fullest section which is generally 9 to 10 inches [23 to 25.5 cm] below the waistline.

A C B

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.

The Knit Stitch 1 Hold the needle with cast on stitches (sts) in your left hand, and the loose yarn attached to the ball at the back of work. Insert righthand needle from left to right through the front of the first stitch (st) on the left-hand needle. 2 Wind the yarn from left to right over the point of the right-hand needle. 3 Draw the yarn through this original stitch (st) which forms a new stitch (st) on right-hand needle. 58
