I cannot find definition or video for an abbreviation "kwtog"

I am working short rows but have come up against an abbreviation I cannot decipher. That abbreviation does not come up in any listing I have found on line. It is "kwtog"

This is a ruffled scarf using short rows.

The instructions are as follows:

CO 22 sts. Work setup row as foll: Sl1 as if to knit(kwise) with yarn in back(wyib), k 10, pl11. Change to aptt and work as foll:

Row 1: Sl 1 kwise wyib, k8, w7t, purl to end.
Row2: Sl 1 kwise wyib, k6, w&t, purl to end
Row 3: Sl 1 kwise wyib, K4, w&t, purl to end.
Row 4: Sl 1 kwise wyib, k4{kwtog, k1} 3 times, purl to end.
Rep rows 1-4 until piece measures 86" along the unruffled centerline, or desired length. BO all sts.

My problem lies in Row 4. after k4 {kwtog,k1}

I think the kwtog means knit wrap together, then k1

I would appreciate any help you may offer.



Hi Linda,

Here are the definition for knitting sts for this ruffle scarf I've found;

"Pattern: Ruffles by Amanda Blair Brown

Stich Guide:

Wrap and Turn (w&t): Slip next stitch to right needle as if to purl, bring yarn between needles (not over, between), return slipped stitch to left needle, bring yarn back between the needles, turn work-- one stitch wrapped.

Knit wrap and wrapped stitch together (kwtog): Insert tip of right needle under the wrap as if to knit, then into the wrapped stitch, and knit both loops together (the wrap and the stitch)."

Happy Knitting!
