Measuring
Mark off inches (or cm) on the edge of your copy of the pattern so that you don’t need to haul a ruler or tape measure around all over the place.

If you find yourself without a ruler or tape measure, scrounge up a piece of standard office paper, which in the US is 8.5 x 11 inches.  Fold the paper to get 4.25 inch and 5 inch measures.

Crossroads Stitches

Crossroads and Throughput are techniques I "unvented," to use the concept of Elizabeth Zimmerman for uncovering a technique that might have been discovered before. Generally, in sharing a technique like this, the unventor proposes really cool projects that knitters will see and want to replicate. I've been scratching my head for years (both figuratively and literally), trying to come up projects for these in addition to the ones you see here.

Having exhausted my creativity in trying to hatch projects to highlight these techniques, I leave it to you, Dear Knitter, to see what you can come up with. I'm tremendously eager to celebrate your applications and extensions of these two techniques. Please post them on Ravelry with a link to Crossroads & Throughput, so that we will have a gallery of your own unventions.
