Q:Hi, I'm working on the Dagmar sweater and have a quick question re the wrap and turns at the back, should I be picking up and knitting the wrap stitches together with the main stitch when I come back to them? Or should I just be leaving the wraps where they are? I haven't done much short row shaping before and the internet is telling me many differing things! Loving the pattern, thanks in advance, Jenni
Hi Jenni, thanks for purchasing my Dagmar pattern. The wrap that you do at the end of each short row is wrapped around the next st on your left needle, which is in turn transferred back to the left needle, so the wrap itself is not a stitch on your needle, you don’t have to do anything with it :) the only function of the wrap is to avoid a hole in the fabric where your turn and work on next row.
This video here shows you exactly how you do it! :)

Summer knit - Molly pullover
For those early summer days, this lightweight cotton sweater is perfect paired with denim shorts or over a floral dress. The lace inlay details at the yoke and bottom hem is the eyecatcher - and a simply way to embellish an otherwise plain sweater.
A beautiful day for treasure hunting!

Ingrid knit cardigan
A little preview of my new design - Ingrid Cardi, a lace cardigan knitted in a fingering weight alpaca yarn, with textured patterns and small ruffle edges all around.
Now it’s time to go out and enjoy the spring! :)
