Machine Knitting Abbreviations

First up on the Masters Level 1 Program is a discussion about machine knitting abbreviations. (One of my personal irritations with printed patterns .... I'm struggling to stay off my soap box)

We've been asked to define approximately 80 abbreviations.

In doing the required research (no guessing allowed), I came across a few amusing abbreviations that aren't included in the program.

  1. Fig of 8
  2. pc
  3. sd
  4. J & B (you have to have been around for quite a long time to know this one ...)
  5. COBH
