Please... someone must know about short row wrapping:
I realize that I do not have to wrap my stitches (I've practiced the YO and Japanese short row methods using NonaKnits blog: http://nonaknits.typepad.com/nonaknits/tips_and_techniques/index.html...). I would just like to learn more about proper wrapping technique. I've visited many blogs or sites that show technique (including KH). But, they all seem to vary.
Based on my internet search, I found two different ways to wrap a stitch: 1) Move the yarn, then slip; or 2) Slip, then move the yarn.
The first method wraps a knit-side stitch from front to back (therefore, back to front on the purl side). The second method wraps a knit-side stitch back to front (therefore, front to back on the purl side).
Is one method better than the other or affect the appearance? I'm concerned with getting a mirror image on each side. Most patterns I've seen use only one method exclusively. However, I did see a considerable number of sock patterns that used method #1 for the knit side and method #2 for the purl side.
Also... Which method wraps the stitch tighter? A tighter wrap is better, right?
