Confusion with a pattern - need help please!
I am working on a scarf (http://www.patonsyarns.com/pattern.php?PID=2702) and it states to do a "wrap turn" stitch.

My confusion comes in when I wrap and then turn, I'm not certain I am doing the rest correctly.

1. For Odd Rows 1,3,5,7,9,11, etc. - I should knit, correct?
2. For the EVEN rows, when I wrap and turn, leaving the remaining stitches unworked, it seems like I am not working them at all. And when I am supposed to work them, is it then that I am supposed to pickup the slipped stitch to avoid the hole?

It doesn't seem like it makes sense as I'm practicing it.

Can someone help me understand better? Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

I can't seem to get on the Paton's site to see the pattern, but I'll try to help.

When you work short rows, you don't work all the stitches--just up to the wrap & turn. At some point, you'll probably be instructed to work across all the stitches, and that's when you'll pick up the wraps.

Hi Ingrid - thanks so much for responding. Here is the pattern in word (see below):

I think the part that is confusing is the "note" as well as what to do with the odd numbered rows, and the unworked stitches bc when I practiced it didn't seem as though I was fixing the hole. Should I be purling when I turn or really knitting? I'm sorry with all of the questions....the pattern is not explained well.
************************************************** ******************
INSTRUCTIONS
Note: To avoid a hole when knitting slipped sts, knit the stitch 1 row below together with the slipped stitch.
Cast on 12 sts.
**1st and alt rows: Knit.
2nd row: K10. Slip next st to righthand needle. Bring yarn around slipped st to front of work. Slip st back to left-hand needle - Wrap made. Turn. Leave rem sts unworked.
4th row: K8. Wrap. Turn. Leave rem sts unworked.
6th row: K6. Wrap. Turn. Leave rem sts unworked.
8th row: K4. Wrap. Turn. Leave rem sts unworked.
10th row: K2. Wrap. Turn. Leave rem sts unworked.
12th row: Knit all sts.
Rep 1st to 12th rows twice more.

Knit 1 row.**
Rep from ** to** 5 times more. Cast off knitwise.
Pom-pom (make 2).
Wind yarn around 4 fingers approx 40 times. Remove from fingers and tie tightly at center. Cut through each side of loops. Trim to a smooth round shape.

OK, I think I see what you mean.

All rows are knit. When you work the odd-numbered rows, that's when you are supposed to knit the stitch below with the slipped stitch. I've never heard of doing this with a wrapped stitch, but I don't recall doing w&t stitches in garter stitch (K ever row). That may be the difference.

Since you're only working on 12 stitches, you may want to try leaving the wrap in place but working the stitch below. That may pick up the wrap, too. If that doesn't work, then maybe only knit the wrap with the stitch. See which looks better.
