"Fake" Short Rows
Wrap It Right
A printing error caused some kit patterns to have the right-hand edge cut off,
changing some numbers. If you think you have one of these patterns, please Contact Us for a

Synchronicity: Shape edges: Knit all rows and at beg of every RS row, slip 1st st, k 1, psso, k2, pass 1st st over (2 sts bound off).
At end of every Row 3, work to last 2 sts, kf&b, k1 (1 st increased).

Row 9: P 5, k 1, *p 9, k1*, repeat ** across, end p 5.
Pat 3505 Scallops Cape: 2nd page, 2nd column:
18 sts. Row 11: k 1, (ssk, p 1) twice, k 2 (p 1, k 2 tog) twice, k 1.
poncho worked in k 2 tog mode--try working rnd 2 first, then rnd 1.
The following explanation about the design may be helpful:
The idea is that an extra stitch is added every other rnd on both sides
of the marked stitch. The marked stitch is the center of front and back;
an extra yo is added every other rnd either side of that marked stitch;
and whether you knit a stitch first or go directly into k 2 tog depends
on how it lines up with the rnd before.
Here's the rule: A k 2 tog will always be worked with the previous
yo first on the needle and the previous k 2 tog 2nd on the needle.
If the first st after the marked st is a yo, then the first action will
be k 2 tog, yo. If the first st after the marked st is an actual st,
then it will simply be knitted and then proceed with k 2 tog, yo around
to next marker. The same holds true for any
extra stitches before the marked st (at end of section)--if there is
one lone st, simply knit it and after the next yo is added, it will
get worked into the pattern.
it states Next Row: *K1, K2 tog*, rep** across - 30 sts.
It should read Next row: dec 10 sts evenly spaced across—30 sts.

Clarification for neckline decreases:

2 tog (dec made), k 1 *k 2 tog, yo* repeat **, end k 1.
Row 2: k 1, *yo, k 2 tog* rep **.

Row 4: rep row 2.
Row 5: k 2 tog (dec made), *yo, k 2 tog*, rep **, end
Row 6, 7, 8: rep row 2.
Pat 3611 Right Front size XL should be 70 sts
Pat 3802 Materials should be 2 Kashmir (not 1)
Pat 3813 Stitch multiple should be 14 plus 4; Cast On should be 116.
First interlocking should begin when ready for a WS row (not RS row).
Second interlocking will begin when ready for a RS row.
Pat 3912 Knit Fisherman's Rib pattern stitch: add row 2: sl 1, *k 1, k 1 in row below*, rep **.
Pat 4104 After body increases and neck decreases, ready for armholes: numbers should be 144 (160, 172, 184) sts. Split for armholes: Work across 30 (36, 39, 42) sts, BO 8 sts, work across 68 (72, 78, 84) sts, BO 8 sts, work across rem 30 (36, 39, 42) sts. If you have worked more neck decreases, you may have to adjust the front numbers, but the back numbers remain the same. After cont armhole and neck decreases, back (shoulder) numbers should be 56 (58, 62, 66) sts.
Pat 4107 Back
neck is 28 sts. Front bind off should be 14 sts from center for each
front; rem sts become shoulder seam.
Pat 4203 Clarification:
scarf is in garter, it is not necessary to pick up the wraps after short
rows have been worked.
"4 st increments" indicates that all wrap and turns are done
4 stitches apart. As you increase along one edge, eventually there will
be 4 more stitches in the total and hence another wrap and turn short
row. Again, as sts increase eventually there will be another 4 sts and
so another wrap and turn short row. As the stitch count increases, the
wedges of short rows become larger. If you miss on one, it won’t
matter as the shaping does not require precision.
So, in the beginning you work to last 4 sts, w & t, then work to
last 8 sts, w & t. When 4 more sts have been added, you will wrap
and turn at last 4 sts, then at last 8 sts, then at last 12 sts. When
4 more sts have been added, w & t at last 4 sts, last 8 sts, last
12 sts, last 16 sts, and so on until you have the total number of sts
as specified for your size.
