Caeles KAL Week 2

Share Button

Hi Everyone!

How did the swatching go? Are you ready to cast-on? The pattern begins at the back and includes working a couple of short rows right at the beginning. If you’ve never worked short rows before, there’s nothing to be nervous about. They’re exactly what they sound like – knitting to a certain point in a row, stopping short, and turning and going back. For this pattern, you’ll also be wrapping and turning, so you don’t leave a hole.

Check out our video on short rows using wrap and turn:

We found that as we were working those short rows, we picked up and worked our wraps as we came to them instead of when the pattern indicates. This way, you don’t have a wrap spanning several rows. Once you get to the stitch you wrapped, just knit the wrap with the stitch you’re working as Dena shows in the video.

Continue working the pattern to the armhole shaping and next week, we’ll demonstrate the different increases that are used there.

If you haven’t had a chance to purchase the pattern yet from Twist Collective, you can do so here.

Happy Knitting!

    Beginning knitter here … What’s the point of a wrap and turn?

    A wrap and turn is worked when creating short rows. If you don’t do the wrap and just turn (and then knit the wrap with the stitch as you reach it again), you’ll be left with a hole in your knitting, which can be a lovely design feature, but isn’t used in this pattern.
