If your sweater has any special pattern stitches or instructions, they may be listed and explained separately and not given again in the body of the instructions. For example, you may see the following:
Row 1 (RS): * K1, p1; rep from * to end of row. Row 2: K the purl sts and p the knits sts. Rep Row 2 for pattern.
Then, in the instructions proper, when you read, "work seed stitch for 8 rows," come back to this section to find out how to work seed stitch.
You also may find that a special abbreviation is explained. For example, you may see the following:
C3R (cross 3 right): Sl 1 st to cn and hold to back, k2, pi from cn.
When you come across C3R in your instructions, you don't have to scratch your head and wonder, "What the heck?" You can look in the opening information for an explanation. (And if the instruction used in this example is making you wonder, "What the heck?," refer to the list of abbreviations in Chapter 3.)
