(For a small child.) This is made of blue, or any color preferred, and white saxony, and is sewed together under the arms and along the sleeves.

Cast on 68 stitches with the white wool for the back and knit till there are 36 ridges. (Two rows across make one ridge.)

At each side of this piece (which will be at each end of the needle), cast on 26 stitches, making 120 in all, and knit until there are 20 more ridges.

Knit 50 stitches and slip off on a cord; bind off 20 stitches for the neck; knit the remaining fifty stitches on the needle. (This is to be half of the front.)

Knit the 50 stitches for 5 ridges, cast on 7 stitches at each end of the needle and knit 16 ridges. (There ought to be 64 stitches on the needle.)

Bind off 30 stitches for the sleeve, knit 34 ridges for the rest of the front, and bind off loosely for the bottom.

Knit the 50 stitches remaining in the same manner for the other front.

Finish the sleeves at the bottom like the sack. If crochet is used, make the scallop after the sleeve is sewed up. If a knitted finish or border is preferred, pick up the stitches across the bottom of the sleeve and with the blue knit 6 ridges, sewing up the garment after this is done.

A knitted border (with fitted corners, for above sack). Pick up across the bottom all the stitches, using the color, and knit across once plain.

At the beginning of the needle, knit 2, thread over twice, narrow; knit plain till within 3 of the end of the needle; thread over twice, narrow, knit 1.

The two sides of the front are knit in color and in the same manner, and the slanting corners sewed together to finish.

For the neck, take up the stitches across both neck and border with the colored yarn and knit one row plain.

Knit 7, thread over twice; narrow and knit 5, thread over twice; narrow and knit 5, and repeat across the row.

Knit back plain and drop the last half of thread over twice, making it into one loose stitch or hole for ribbon later.

Knit across plain.

Knit 2, thread over twice, narrow; knit plain till 3 stitches are on the left-hand needle; thread over twice, narrow, knit one.

Knit 3, purl 1, knit plain all but two; then purl 1, knit 1.
