I watched the video on this site but honestly, I cannot translate it into “circ” directions. LOL
Can someone post a step by step process for knitting in the round doing short rows with wrap?
I am working on a pair of longies (pants). I am at the butt of them and need to do short rows for it.
I have only done one other project before (a pony tail hat) so forgive me for asking for such detailed directions. I am a “have to see it to learn it” person. LOL
The pattern says:
[color=red]Knit 24 stitches and place marker (this will mark the side seam), knit across 48 stitches and place marker (this will mark the other side seam). Knit to end of round.
I suggest that these side seam markers be of a different color than the beginning of round marker, so that it is easy to distinguish.
Knit each round for 5 inches from top of cast on row. [/color]
[color=red]Begin short rows:[/color] [color=red]knit across 14 stitches. Wrap next stitch and turn.
Purl back to 14 stitches past the beginning of round marker.
Wrap next stitch and turn.
Knit to 16 stitches past beginning of round marker. (Be sure to knit the wrap with the stitch it is around when you come to it, to avoid creating holes and to “hide” the wrap) Wrap next stitch and turn.
Purl back to 16 stitches past the beginning marker. Wrap next stitch and turn.
You’ll notice that each time, you are now working 2 stitches past the previous wrap. Continue to work in this manner until you hit the side seam markers.
Then, the short rows are completed and you will return to working stockinette stitch in the round.[/color]
So, I’m guessing even though I am in “the round” I am still turning my work???
I’m SO confused! LOL
Any help is much appreciated! If you have links to videos that show how to knit short rows in the round I’d love to see them!
