TO MAKE UP: Press pieces carefully. Sew side seams. Sew sleeve seams to within ¾ inch of top. Sew sleeves in armholes. Sew buttons to correspond to the shell edges on Front of coat as illustrated, using the Ch. 3. of the shell pattern for a buttonhole. As the coat is reversible the buttons should be sewn on the left front for a girl, and the right front for a boy.


Wear Wool and Be Well

ULTRA-VIOLET TRANSMISSION THROUGH FABRIC MADE FROM WOOL—It is an established fact that the health-giving ultra-violet rays are transmitted to the body with greater power through Wool than through either Artificial Silk or Cotton.

USE GOOD QUALITY WOOLS AND THERE IS NO NEED FOR WASHING HAND KNITTED GARMENTS BEFORE WEARING

General Information

CHECK THE TENSION

The garments in this book are worked to the exact tension given. They are closely knitted to insure a firm fabric that will wear better and keep its shape longer than a loosely knitted fabric. Check your tension. Before beginning your garment take the wool and needles specified. Cast on 20 stitches. Work 20 rows stocking stitch and compare with the tension given in the instruction. All given tension in Beehive instructions is measured over stocking stitch. If your tension is too loose try a size smaller needle. If your tension is too tight try a size larger needle.

Be sure to work to exact tension given

if you want your garment to work to correct size.

To Press a Finished Garment

—for plain, smooth fabric. Place all knitted pieces on a thick pad wrong side out. Baste to shape and size desired being careful to keep the weave quite straight. Cover with a damp bath towel. Smooth EVENLY with a WARM iron. Remove towel and leave until dry.

For raised and fancy patterns. Baste into position and cover with a wet towel but do not press. Pat gently but firmly with the hand. Remove towel and leave until dry.

Use the Yarn the Pattern Calls For

Use only Patons and Baldwins yarns, and Beehive Knitting Needles for any of the garments in this Book.

Buy the Quantity of Yarn the Pattern Calls For

at the time you make your initial purchase, making sure it is the one dye lot. This will prevent a disappointment later on when you might find you could not exactly match the colour.

To Change the Size

Read carefully the measurements given in the instructions. When enlarging a patterned garment be sure to add enough stitches for a complete pattern. When enlarging a plain garment multiply the stitches required for 1 inch by the number of inches necessary for the extra width. For a smaller size cast on as many less stitches as are required for 1 inch. Continue knitting in extra or lesser length to underarm, for armhole and for sleeves.


Washing and Drying Woollen Garments

[Page Sixty-Four]

The beauty of your hand knit woollen garments can be easily retained after many washings provided a few simple rules are followed.

Before washing, measure the garment and note measurements carefully.

1. USE GOOD MILD SOAP OR SOAP FLAKES. Dissolve sufficient quantity to make good lukewarm suds.
4. Never let the garment lie wet, but remove all moisture at once by rolling in a clean, thick towel.
2. Squeeze the suds gently through and through the garment until clean. Never rub a woollen garment. Keep garment supported by hands when removing from water, because the weight of the wet garment may stretch the yarn.
5. Remove garment from towel, lay on flat surface, easing into original measurement. Leave until dry AWAY FROM EXTREME HEAT. DO NOT HANG UP.
3. Rinse 3 times in clean, lukewarm water, gently squeezing to REMOVE ALL SOAP. Keep garment supported by hands when removing from water.
6. NON-SHRINK WOOLS. Non-Shrink treated yarns may stretch with careless washing, therefore use especial care when washing your non-shrink garments. Follow the same instructions most carefully and you will avoid any trouble. REMOVE ALL SOAP. REMOVE ALL MOISTURE. AFTER WASHING DON'T HANG UP—DRY FLAT!
