TERMS USED IN KNITTING.

Cast on—Make a loop on 1 pin, and with the other pin knit a plain stitch without taking it off, pass it on to the left pin and repeat.

Cast off—Knit 2 stitches, pass the 1st stitch knitted over the 2nd, knit 1, turn the 2nd stitch over the last, and repeat to the end; then cut off the cotton and draw it through to fasten it.

The 1st stitch of every row should be slipped.

To make round after casting on 3 pins with the 4th pin, knit the 1st stitch cast on.

In purling a row, the wool should be in front of the pin. When there are purl and plain stitches in a row, bring the cotton forward to purl, and pass it back before knitting the plain stitch.

To knit 3 together—Slip a stitch, knit 2 together, turn the slipped stitch over them, leaving but 1 stitch.

A slipped stitch should always be taken off the purl way.

[2]

To purl, is to put the pin the contrary way to knitting plain; in knitting, the pin is put up the stitch, in purling it is put down.

When this mark (*) occurs in a row, the stitches before it are not to be repeated in the row, being merely the edge stitches to prevent the work from decreasing; thus, when knit 3 together is in a row, the row generally begins with knit 2 together, and ends the same.

The stitch over in many of the patterns, is always knitted as the 1st stitch, as many patterns end with make 1, it could not be done without this stitch.

Many ladies in working a pattern, copy on cards each row separately; this prevents confusing one row with another.

The stitches between the mark, thus (knit 2 together 3 times) are worked, knit 2 together, knit 2 together, knit 2 together; this prevents useless repetition.

The pins and meshes are all gauged by the standard or wire-drawer’s gauge.

To raise stitches—Put the pin in the selvedge or side of the knitting, put the wool round the pin as in knitting, and bring it through, so as to form a stitch.

To make a stitch—Bring the wool forward between the needles.
