Wrap Stitch??
Hi All! I'm new to this website, but I have found the information here extremely helpful. I have just recently tried to expand my knitting skills from the basic knit and purl and have bumped into a stitch that I can't quite figure out how to do properly.

It's called a wrap stich and I have included the pattern row below:

Row 1 (RS) K 1, *(bring yarn to front, slip next
4 sts, wrap, place slipped sts back on left needle, wrap around) 3 times Wrap st made, k 6; repeat from * to last 2 sts, k 2.

I don't think I'm creating this properly because it is getting bulky, hard to maneuver, and seems to be creating new stitches. If anyone could help me, I'd appreciate it.

Thanks!
Lisa

Row 1 (RS) K 1, *(bring yarn to front (as if you're going to purl), slip next
4 sts (all you have to do is move the sts from your left needle to your right needle w/o knitting or purling them), wrap (put the yarn behind your needle as if you're going to knit the next st), place slipped sts back on left needle (move the same 4 sts back to left needle), wrap around) 3 times Wrap st made, k 6; repeat from * to last 2 sts, k 2.

I don't think I'm creating this properly because it is getting bulky, hard to maneuver, and seems to be creating new stitches. If anyone could help me, I'd appreciate it.

Thanks!

I wouldn't worry about the bulk too much b/c you are essentially squishing 4 sts together. But creating new stitches? I don't see any incs in the instructions so I'd worry about that. Perhaps your yarn is in the wrong place relative to the next st your going to work. For example: if your going to knit a st, you don't want the yarn in front of the work; that will create a new st.

I hope that helps a little...

Thank you for the help - instead of just bring the yarn from front to back I was wrapping the yarn around the needle again creating another loop on the needle.

Another quick questions...on the next part where I knit 6, do I treat the wrapped stiches as 1 or still as 4 individual stitches?

Thanks again!
