Ok, so I am familiar with wrap and turn (and this website has a great video on it), but the pattern has me wrapping and turning and I have run out of stitches, but the pattern keeps going with wrap and turn. So I think I am doing it wrong and need some help.
The pattern is Classic Baby Cardigan on page 108 of Vogue Knitting Spring/Summer 2007 issue. I am on the collar part (almost done!). The pattern goes as follows:
You pick up and knit 63 sts evenly around the neck edge.
Next row (WS) p to last 20 sts, w&t.
Next row (RS) k to last 20 sts, w&t.
Work to last 14 sts, w&t.
Next 2 rows Work to last 8 sts, w&t.
Next row k all sts, including the wrapped sts.
Next row purl.
So here’s my problem: I thought wrap and turn for a collar is supposed to help build up the area around the back of the neck a little so it will fold over and lay flat at the sides. I also thought that when wrapping and turning, you keep stopping short of the end and then wrapping and turning so that you knit (or purl) fewer stitches on each subsequent row until you finally knit (or purl) everything across including the wrapped stitches. With the pattern above, I have no further stitches by the time I try to “work to the last 8 sts” unless I knit over a wrapped stitch. Am I reading this wrong? Does anyone have any advice? I checked the magazine website and there were no comments on an error.
My friend’s baby is almost here, and it is a newborn sized sweater, so I really wanted to get this done. :help:
