how do I do this increase?

I am making a pattern that reads:

m1, k7 (6,6,10,11) 2 (0,4,2,2)

Does this mean m10 2 times (I am making the third size in parenthesis)?

Thanks,

Sue

Thank you so much Ratcha! That makes perfect sense! Sometimes you can't see the woods through the trees....

You might be sorry I found your site! Ha!

short row help
by: Ratchadawan

Hi Sue,

Row 1: K to the last 9 stitches before the marker, w&t
Row 2: P to the last 9 stitches , w&t
Row 3: K to the last 2 stitches BEFORE THE WRAP, w&t
Row 4: P to the last 2 stitches BEFORE THE WRAP, w&t
Repeat rows 3 and 4 until 12 stitches are left unwrapped at the center chest.


Before the wrap means before the wrapped sts that you wrapped on the previous row before you turn your work. That what's w&t mean "wrap and turn".

On row 3 and 4 work until you come to 2 stitches before the wrapped stitches not 2 sts before marker. Work toward marker on each row and always 2 sts less than previous row.

Row 1: K to the last 9 stitches before the marker, w&t
Row 2: P to the last 9 stitches , w&t
Row 3: K to the last 2 stitches BEFORE THE WRAP, w&t
Row 4: P to the last 2 stitches BEFORE THE WRAP, w&t
Repeat rows 3 and 4 until 12 stitches are left unwrapped at the center chest.

You should have the same numbers of stitches between the markers. That's right but you have to work wrap and turn toward the center until you have 12 sts left unwrap.

If you need to see how the short row is done, you can check out YouTube videos. There are many good videos you can watch.

Short Rows - help!
by: Anonymous

Now I am stuck with knitting the chest in short rows on this doggie sweater patten for my daughter's dachshund. The instructions read:

Row 1: K to the last 9 stitches before the marker, w&t
Row 2: P to the last 9 stitches , w&t
Row 3: K to the last 2 stitches BEFORE THE WRAP, w&t
Row 4: P to the last 2 stitches BEFORE THE WRAP, w&t
Repeat rows 3 and 4 until 12 stitches are left unwrapped at the center chest.

Well, I am clearly doing this wrong because I continue to have the same amount of stitches between my two stitch markers…..

At Row 3 and 4 I just knitted until I got to 2 stitches before the marker (like rows 1 and 2) but the instructions say BEFORE THE WRAP, w&t on Rows 3 and 4- what does BEFORE THE WRAP mean?

Thanks in advance - I am having a brain cramp!

Hi Sue,

[m1, k7 (6,6,10,11)] 2 (0,4,2,2) times

Yes, you would do (m1, K10) 2 times.

Glad you've figured it out.

how to make this increase
by: Sue

Thank you! I think I figured it out but these are the instructions:

[m1, k7 (6,6,10,11)] 2 (0,4,2,2) times

I am making the L size so I interpret this as m1, k10 2 times

So glad I found this page for future reference!

Hi Sue,

m1, k7 (6,6,10,11) 2 (0,4,2,2)

It's not very clear to me. What do you have for The whole row.

This is like m1, then k10, then 2 something,... what comes after that. Is it "times".
It could be m1, k10 2 times.

Would love to see the whole row of instruction.

Thanks!!

Ratcha
