Jacket help!!
 
Hey everyone. Having a problem with a pattern I purchased on craftsy... I contacted the pattern maker, but wondering if someone would have some insight to how this is supposed to be. Worked top down.cast on provisional method.
1. No where in the pattern does it say how many stitches to cast on. It starts with row 1 (rs) k16 (or more for larger size ), join a ball of yarn and bind off 26 neck sts ( or more per size) k 16

Row 2: (ws) purl
Shape shoulders:

Row 3&4: work 3 (or more per size) sts past neck opening, wrp-t.

What is wrp-t? Wrap what?

This is my first attempt at a garment other than a hat. I know I can do it, I just need that extra push and help. Thank you!

I've never seen wrap and turn written that way. It's usually w&t. You use them for short rows to add shaping. There is a video in the video section.

Do you have a link and/or pattern name please?

Hi Jan,
Link is
Crafsty.com/project/view/balsam-jacket/28922#
Had to type that in wouldn't let me paste. Hopefully that works. Thanks for explaining wrp-t. Makes sense now.
And I was thinking since the first row starts k16, Join second ball of yarn and bind off 26 neck sts, k16. 16+26+16=58 should I cast on 58 sts or whatever is appropriate for directed size? Makes sense in my head but I need confirmation lol

And also, when its indicated to wrp-t in the pattern.. I watched the video you posted and I guess you work that wrp-t once back then back again?

Hmm...it looks like a pretty large neck so it would have to be more cast on then 58 I'd think...I'm not sure. Sometimes the cast on number is written in the section above the actual pattern...is that possible?

Have you done W&T before?

I'm hoping someone else has the pattern, too.

Wish I could post a photo of the pattern from my phone..
Anything before the first row says:
sizes
Materials
Needles
Other notions needed
Gauge

Then notes on the short rows and set in sleeves, buttons, waistband etc.

I have not done w&t before, the video you posted makes it seem pretty easy.this is my first garment. And I'm determined!! Haha

Also, fOr the size I need to make, I'm thinKing the co is 64...? If I'm doing my math from the first row explanation

You can't post the whole pattern anyway due to copyright issues. It's okay to post a few lines if you have trouble though.

I'm not sure of the answers. Hopefully you'll hear from the designer!
