W&t (!?!?)

Hello, all, I am working on a little toy and this is the first time I’ve seen this abbreviation. I understand that it isn’t an unusual instruction, I’m just lost at how to do it.

The pattern states:

wrap and turn, slip next stitch and bring yarn forward, slip stitch back to original needle, turn and work back the other way.

You can imagine my confusion.

Is there a better way to state this or does someone know of a video out there that can help me? Videos are best, as I can learn better from watching someone do it. :frowning:

Hopefully, someone can help me find something! Crossed Fingers

PS: I know that this is a sock thing, right? I’ve never done socks, so…Yeah…

It’s not just for socks. It’s one method used when doing short rows. Your directions are pretty clear … you just do what it says after the words wrap and turn. You are knitting “short rows” and won’t be knitting all the way to the end each time. There is a video here in KH for it.


Yep, just take it one step at a time and don’t worry that it’s different from anything else, it’s just unfamiliar to you. If you can’t figure it out from the video Jan pointed you to, here’s an article that may also help.

Oh! I must be blind. I couldn’t find that video at first! :slight_smile:
