Hi there, my dilemma is an abbreviation , here it goes , w3 - wrap next 3 sts by yrn to make a st, k3 sts then slip the yrn over the last 3 sts just knitted , it’s a cable jumper iam knitting , but this has me stumped , any help please …
Can you please tell us the pattern name and post the link if possible? Don’t post the pattern here.
The pattern is by woolcraft …
Is there a pattern name? It’s so helpful to be able to see a photo and to check errata.
This sounds like the pattern definition of a w3.
w3 = wrap next 3 sts as follows: Yarn round the needle (yrn) to make a st,
then slip the yrn over the last 3 sts just knitted
So make a yarn over or yarn round the needle depending on whether you’ve just completed a knit or a purl st. You want to create a loop over the right needle in any case. Knit the next 3sts from the left needle to the right. Slip the yarn over (or yrn) over the 3sts just knit and off the right needle.
Thankyou , just knitted it , it all makes sense now , simple when you know how , cheers …
