I think it means wrap and turn but I'm not sure. It happens mid row. If it is wrap and turn, how do I do it?
It does stand for wrap and turn and this is how you would do it in the middle of a row:
W&T = Wrap and turn; knit to the point where the pattern says to turn. Bring your yarn to the front of the work, slip the next stitch from the left hand needle, take your yarn to the back of the work, Slip the stitch back to the left hand needle. Turn your work and place the yarn at the back of your work before knitting to the beginning of the row.
I hope this answered your question. Good luck and enjoy!
