Additional notes:
·        Knit Knat designs will use CYC standard sizing beginning Spring ‘06, Please make sure that you use these design +. Full details can be found here:

·        US spellings are our standard.
·        Abbreviations that begin a sentence should be capitalized
·        Use “inches”, not inch symbol [“] universally
·        Use “work” [not “knit”] when describing following a specific pattern for a specific measurement.
·        For multiple instructions, indicate as follows: 12[13, 14, 15]
note: no space between first number and bracket
·        Do not use fractions. Please use decimals or write the fractions in words (i.e. one-quarter or .25)

This style guide is a complilation of standards from across the industry and are used as a guide for ease in publishing.
