Help w/Rowan Iris: short rows/wrap
I have been working on a Rowan Iris pattern (a shrug) and have ripped it out several times now--the part I am having trouble with is the short row/wrap. I think I have finally gotten it down--mostly. The garment I am making is here:
http://www.laughinghens.com/knitting...ernpageid=1116

Here's the "problem": (the garment is st st on RS)
On the LEFT front of the garment, the RS looks like st st, and I cannot see the wrapped stitch at all from the RS.

On the RIGHT front side of the garment, I can see where I wrapped the stitch on the RS of the garment--the wrapped stitch lays tightly around another stitch, and is not very noticeable, but still, it is there.

Now, from the picture in the book (which is on the web site above), I cannot really tell which is correct. Should I be seeing my wrapped stitch on the RS of the garment? In another incarnation of the LEFT front, I could very obviously see my wrapped stitch, and the wraped stitched created a "slanted line" on the RS, and together all the wrapped stitches formed a bit of a design. I decided this wasn't right (based on the pic in the book) and ripped it all out. I wish the pic was a bit clearer.

Does anyone have any ideas on how this is really supposed to look? This is my first knitting project (well, now my second because I set it aside during the holidays in order to make a baby blanket), but I fear that by the time I am done with it, shrugs will no longer be in style!!!

Thanks in advance,

melissa

Are there instructions after all the wraps are done to knit across, picking up the wraps? That's usually the case. The wraps do show, and usually a pattern will have you go across the row with the wraps and knit them together with the stitch above them.

Yes, it states that on following rows, knit (or purl, for right front) the wrap and the stitch together.

If the wrap is supposed to show, then I guess I need to rip out my left front side, as the wrapped stitches are not showing AT ALL. Wonder what I did wrong. . .

If you did the wrap on the purl side, it won't show on the front. Look for it on the purl side and lift it up on your left needle to knit/purl it with the other stitch.
