Is There any Abbreviation help here?
I love this site because it shows video clips that are extremly helpful for us new knitters. But I couldn't find anything to show me if I'm doing the 'w&t' wrong. I did see by viewing the clip that I was doing the 'ssk' wrong .

Also , in the instructions for the felted clogs that I'm making it doesn't explain how to read and use the work in Parentheses ever well. I'm making a size 8 and this is an example of what I mean....

Row1:k1,m1,k24(27,30/30,33) and what does this meanwhen it saysat the end of a row

(45,51,55/63,67sts total on needle) what count do I go by??


Nana,

There is a glossary page on the site (here) - it is the glossary tab at the top of the page.

Hopefully someone else can help with the clog pattern - I haven't made those yet!

The numbers in the parenteses are how many you need to knit/have for the size you are making.

For example, a pattern will say size 6(7,8,9,10) and the stitches will correspond to the place in the parentheses. If each size had 10 more stitches than the last, it would say 10(20,30,40,50). It helps to highlight which size you're making throughout the pattern so you don't mistakenly read the wrong number.

I'm not sure if there's a video of wrap and turn, but this knitty article - http://knitty.com/ISSUEsummer03/FEATbonnetric.html - has several pictures that demonstrate how to do it.

Amy does have a vid for wrap and turn, it's how it finally clicked for me, by sitting there with my yarn and needles and following her stitch for stitch... It's here if you still need it.

If you are making a Woman's size 8 (medium) you would use the number that comes right after the open paren. i.e. 10(20,30/40,50). The slash line delineates the women's from the men's sizes women's small (medium large/men's medium, large). At the end of some of the rows the pattern will remind you how many stitches you should have on the needle. In that case you would look at the second number after the open paren (10,20,30/40,50) This really helps in the beginning to know if you've messed up!!

Hope this helps.

I checked out the Glossary here. Why isn't the term 'W&T' on there?? It's in one of my patterns. I can't fine in in my knitting books either.

Nina, Thank You Ever So Much! Omg, does that clear things up for me. Do you know,I went back over the whole pattern and no where in the pattern did it tell me that....Why? That isn't something a newbie like myself would know!

Hi!
So glad that helped!! Now, look at the first page at the bottom. W&T and M1 are explained there. For a W&T you slip the next stitch to the right needle (as if to purl) without purling it. Then bring the yarn to the front between the needles. Then slip that slipped stitch back to the left needle. Then turn your work completely around.
