Having trouble with your ruffled wrap, am only gettig a triangle for the ruffle no wrap
What am I doing wrong
Christine: Are you doing the short-row (i.e., work only part-way across the row, turn and go back) part of the pattern? that’s what will give you the ruffles. Be sure to wrap the stitch as you do the short rows to prepare for when you come back and knit the whole row (to avoid getting a hole at that spot). Interweave Knits has some handy info about short rows and wrapping the stitch (with a clear image) on their site http://www.knittingdaily.com/glossary/short-row-wrapping-stitches.aspx I like to think of this as “wrapping the yarn around the ‘post’ of the stitch” before turning and going back to knit the now-shortened row. Does that help? Let me know.
The pattern is meant to be one in which you can find a flow and just into the groove and enjoy knitting it. I know you’ll get it.
Lisa:) We went to Concordia togehter. I’m knitting, but only traditional patterns. I enjoyed reading your blog! A big Norwegian hug:)
Mette: Great to hear from you! I’ll send you an email. Big hug right back atcha!
