I’ve never heard of this abbrev before: W&T. Stands for Wrap and Turn.
This is a part of the pattern:
Row 1 [RS]: K to last 2 sts, W&T.
Row 2 [WS]: K to end.
Row 3 [RS]: K to last st before wrapped st of previous row, W&T.
Repeat these 2 rows 1[2, 3] times more. 3[4, 5] sts have been wrapped.[/I]
It’s part of a wedge so I presume there is supposed to be an increase by one st per each w&t. However, when I looked it up, W&T does not seem to be an increase.
Their definition is:
[I]Wrap and turn. Bring yarn to front of work between needles, slip next st to right-hand needle, bring yarn around this st to back of work, slip st back to left-hand needle, turn work to begin working back in the other direction.[/I]
Now, when I turn my work around to start moving back in the other direction, my yarn is to the front. As I am knitting, my yarn needs to be in the back. Do I wrap my yarn around the needles (kind of like YO) to create the extra stitch?
