Slip one st from left needle to right needle without knitting or purling inserting the right needle in the st as if to Knit unless otherwise directed. When slipping the stitch leave yarn to the wrong side unless directed otherwise.


In stockinette stitch pick up stitch on right side of work. Using a crochet hook, insert hook in dropped st, draw yarn to row above through loop forming a new loop. Continue in this manner until you reach the row being worked being careful not to twist the sts. (Ill. No. 30). PURL sts are picked up by inserting crochet hook through dropped st from in back of sts. (Ill. No. 31). In GARTER STITCH alternate the two movements. RIPPING BACK: Unravel work to within the last row of point desired. Rip the last row a stitch at a time placing each stitch on a free needle, preferably a finer double pointed needle, then place these sts back on size needle you are using. Continue knitting as directed.

Picking up stitches around neck and armholes is usually done with smaller needles. Hold the work with right side toward you and work from right to left. Insert right needle into the first st from edge, pick up stitches. When picking up stitches on an irregular edge be sure to pick up a stitch in every row. Always work with the right side toward you unless otherwise directed.
