Reading Schematics

Schematics are diagrams of the finished knit pieces for a project. They indicate the measurements for each piece before everything has been sewn together. Schematics are a very handy reference. You can measure as you knit by comparing it to the schematics, making sure that you're coming up with the same thing. If your row gauge is slightly off, you can follow the schematic instead of the instructions' row counts to ensure that your pieces will be the correct length. The measurements listed on schematics do not include embellishments such as collars, button bands, or decorative edgings that are added later.
