Wrapping or yo?
Hi everybody. Im having trouble figuring out this pattern. Is a lace of the Knitting on the Edge book. It is called Mary's lace.

Well the isntruccions are:

Row1 K3, (yo, k2tog) twice, k2, k8 wrapping yarn arround each st 4 times, k2, yo 4 times, k2.


OK, to yo (yarn over) is lto wrap the knitting needle with yarn. Agree? How do I wrap a stitch???

the only way I imagine that is to pull out a stitch and wrap it with yarn, put it again in the needle, knit it, and all over again, 8 times.

Please!!! What is the difference???? How do I wrap a stitch 4 times?

Hi Isamar!

I think instead of wrapping the yarn once on each stitch, you are supposed to wrap the yarn around the right tip 4 times and pull these 4 loops through.

See if this makes sense with whatever you have to do on the next row.

I was thinking that.. you must need the row 2 instructions:


Row 2 K3, p1, k1, k2, sl 8 dropping extra wraps sl the first 4 sts over the last 4 sts and onto the LH needle, then sl the last 4 sts to LH needle and k8, k3 (yo, k2tog) twice, k2.

I bet this is an interesting stitch pattern!

It looks like what I said holds true. Instead of wrapping the yarn once on each stitch, wrap it four times and pull those four wraps through the one stitch.

On the next row, you'll drop the extra wraps and only keep one stitch.

When you knit a regular stitch, you insert the needle, WRAP the yarn and pull it through, right? Just wrap 4 times instead of one. There's no special technique, just more of what you would normally do to knit a stitch.
