knitting into wrap and stitch short rows
:XX: when knitting into wrap and stitch, do you knit wrap and stitch together or do you just knit stitch and pass knit stitch over with wrap? I've seen it demostrated both ways. Is one better than other ? Thanks , Kristi

I've only seen it done when you knit the two together. That's what Wiseman says to do in the Knitter's Book of Finishing Techniques.

I enjoy reading, quilting (started 10/11/2003), bread baking, purse making, making fabric bowls. I use to macramé and decorate cakes.
I started hand knitting (10/01/2005) and got my embroidery machine for Christmas 2005. I had 2 Bond Incredible Sweater Machines given to me in Feb. of 2007 that I'm really enjoying. http://susies1955.myphotoalbum.com/

short rows with wrapped stitches
THanks for the reply. I got the information about just knitting the knit stitch and passing it over with the wrap off of the website knittingatknoon.com under "short rows" video clip. If you check it out , tell me what you think! Thanks again, Kristi

If the item is not going to be felted, I prefer to knit the wrap with the stitch. I think it makes a more invisible short row. If you're felting something, like our favorite clogs, then you don't need to pick up the wrap at all and you can't tell.

Happy Knitting :XX: :XX:
