Help with short-row shaping please!
I've knit several pairs of socks, so I do understand the concept, but I'm not seeing it come through in the knitted piece. I tried the regular method and wrap and turn, and neither worked for me.
It's for a pair of bloomers in the Little Girlie Girl set in March 08 Creative Knitting. No corrections are listed on their site. This is the part where I'm having problems:
(I have 51 stitches on the needle here and this is waist shaping)
Row 1: Knit to last 3 sts, turn.
Row 2: Sl 1, purl to last 3 sts, turn.
Row 3: Sl 1, knit to last 3 sts, turn.
Rep rows 2 and 3 twice more...
If I strictly slip and turn, I end up with 3 basically unworked stitches and a gaping hole on each side of the row. I tried "wrap and turn" but the stitch I was wrapping wasn't a stitch I was supposed to work.
V V V V V V V V V...... V V V
Those bolded V's represent the stitch that was getting wrapped - but I wasn't ever supposed to work that stitch.
Can anyone help me please? Thanks in advance!
