\''^i NTRODUCTION 

Knitting and crocheting with the Woolco Yarns is 
one of the most fascinating forms of recreation. It is 
very easy to learn the first stitches, and a Httle prac- 
tice will make you a proficient worker. You will find 
that the work goes quickly, and that instead of tiring 
you it will rest you and soothe the nerves. 

In preparing the Woolco Manual it has been our 
aim to produce a book that will be of greatest service 
both to those who are taking up the work for the 
first time and for those who need only new ideas for 
practical and pretty garments. All explanations have 
been made as simple as possible, and the garments 
have been selected for their general usefulness and 
good style. 

To those who are not familiar with knitting and 
crocheting with yarns a word of advice about yarn 
quality is important. In any line of goods quality is 
always worth its price, and in the end will prove the 
most economical. But while in some lines of goods 
a little better or a little worse may make slight differ- 
ence, in yarns it means the difference between success 
and failure. The best worker in the world cannot 
make a satisfactory garment of inferior yarns. For 
this reason we wish to impress upon you the neces- 
sity of buying Woolco Yarns. You will then be 
certain to secure the full value of the time and skill 
you spend upon your work. See pages 6 and 7.

WOOLCO YARNS 



The rapidity with which Woolco Yarns have 
established themselves among our patrons is the best 
possible testimony to their splendid qualities. Each of 
the three yarns are made from wools carefully 
selected to give the proper strength and character, 
every step in the long process of manufacture is closely 
watched and the finished yarn undergoes a final 
searching examination before it is boxed. That is 
why you can count on Woolco Yarns being always 
the same. 

When worked up into garments you will find that 
Woolco Yarns give an unusually soft and warm fabric 
with remarkable wearing qualities. Since a large part 
of the value of any knitted or crocheted garment is in 
the time and skill spent in making it, you should take 
particular care in the selection of your yarn. If you 
make it a point to use only Woolco Yarns you can 
depend upon the finished garment giving perfect 
satisfaction. 

For the convenience of those who do not live 
near a Woolworth Store Woolco Yarns will be sup- 
plied by mail from Store No. ig, Boston. See details 
on opposite page.

KNITTING STITCHES 




To Cast On Stitches 

Make a loop in the yarn and slip it onto a needle. 
Next slip tlie 2d needle into the loop, throw the 
yain around it, draw it through, and slip the loop 
thus formed onto the left-hand needle, thrusting the 
latter needle through it from the front to the back. 
Put the right-hand needle into the 2d loop; make 
another loop and slip it onto the left-hand needle. 

Repeat in this manner until you have as many 
stitches as required. 



Knit Plain 

Having cast on the number of stitches required, 
insert the right-hand needle into the ist stitch; 
throw the yarn over, draw it through to form a 
loop or stitch. Repeat this movement for the next 
and all the stitches on the left-hand needle, keeping 
the stitches on the right-hand needle.

To Purl 

Throw the yarn from its usual position at the 
back of work, in front of the right-hand needle. 
Then insert the point of the latter under the next 
stitch, thrusting it through from the right toward 
the left, instead of the way usual in knitting plain. 
This will bring the right-hand needle in front of the 
left one; now throw the thread around the right 
hand needle by the same movement as used in 
plain knitting, and draw the loop backward instead 
of forward. Seam, or purl as many stitches as 
required, and then throw the yarn back of the 
needle into its ordinary position. 



Bind Off 

Slip I stitch, knit the next stitch; with the left- 
hand needle draw the slipped stitch over the 
knitted one. Continue slipping the ist stitch over 
the last knitted stitch until there is but i left on the 
needle, break off yarn and draw through this last 
stitch.

Buy at one time enough 
yarn to finish your work. 

Woolco Yarns have always been dyed with 
the finest dyes obtainable. The well-known 
condition of the dyestuffs market at present 
forces us to buy dyes in small lots so that we 
are no longer able to maintain our usual uni- 
formity of shades. 

It is a condition which we would overcome 
if it were possible, but as there is positively 
no remedy we must urge our customers to 
buy more carefully than has heretofore been 
necessary. 

Buy enough yarn to finish your garment 
and see that it matches before you leave the 
store. By doing so you will avoid disappoint- 
ment for yourself and assist us in overcoming 
an awkward and regrettable situation. 

May we count on your co-operation?

In Buying Woolco Yarns 

you should buy enough of a color to finish the 
garment you intend to make. Woolco Yarns 
have always been dyed with the finest and most 
expensive dyes obtainable. The well-known 
condition of the dyestuffs market at present 
forces us to buy dyes in small lots so that we 
are no longer able to maintain our usual uni- 
formity of shades. It is a condition which we 



would overcome if it were possible, but as there 
is positively no remedy we must urge our cus- 
tomers to buy more carefully than has hereto- 
fore been necessary. Buy enough yarn to 
finish your garment and see that it matches 
before you leave the store. By doing so you 
will avoid disappointment for yourself and 
assist us in overcoming an awkward and regretta- 
ble situation. May we count on your co- 
operation?
