So far, my Pasha the Penguin is coming out wonderfully…I just hope I did the w&t rows properly.
In the patterns, here are the instructions for the shaping:
Row 1 [RS]: K20, w&t.
Row 2 [WS]: P16, w&t.
Row 3 [RS]: K14, w&t.
Row 4 [WS]: P12, w&t.
Row 5 [RS]: K10, w&t.
Row 6 [WS]: P8, w&t.
Row 7 [RS]: K6, w&t.
Row 8 [WS]: P4, w&t.
Row 9 [RS]: K to end, picking up and knitting wraps together with respective sts.
Row 10 [WS]: P all sts, picking up and purling wraps together with respective sts.
My question relates to the last two lines of instruction, rows 9 & 10. What do they mean by “Picking up and knitting wraps together with respective sts”.
I just knit them regularly making sure I still had 24 sts because a few lines later, it says to CO 5, knit the row, CO 5 more to the end and purl the last row. After those two rows were done, it said I should have 34 sts so I know that I wasn’t supposed to do any kind of decreasing.
But, that whole “Picking up and knitting wraps together” line really confuses the heck outta me.
Thanks for any insight into this!
