I am swatching the Rectangular Square Cover Shawl from Knitpicks to make sure I understand the pattern. Each row begins WYIF, S1 as if to P, K5 (or K7). I know that WYIF is with yarn in front, but since the next stitch is K, which needs yarn behind, I don’t understand what this is doing. Is it just creating a bar where the yarn goes across the slipped stitch when I move it to the back? I hope I’m explaining this right…would appreciate any help as this is my first attempt at laceweight.
