Yet Another Short-Row Scarf

There are quite a number scarf patterns available on Ravelry, that use wedges of short rows. However, I was too lazy to search through them - so I just started knitting.

Techniques:

I used one skein (200 grams) of (probably) super bulky yarn and 8mm needles.

CO21 sts
Row 1: k
Row 2: k to 3 sts before end of row w+t
Row 3: k to end
Row 4: k to 3 sts before gap w+t (where gap is the last w+t)
Row 5: k to end
Repeat rows 4 and 5 until there are only 3 stitches per row
Row 14: knit all picking put the wrapped stitches
You have now completed the first wedge.

The picture shows how the wedges add up to a scarf. Since one wedge consists of 13 rows (i.e. an odd number of rows), each wedge starts at the opposite edge of the previous one.

Repeat rows 2 to 14 until you reach the desired length.
Bind off in the row 14 of last wedge picking up the wrapped stitches.

  1. I love this pattern but don't understand what w+t means. The photo info doesn't help me because I still do not understand that terminology. I think something got lost in translation? Can you help me, please??

    1. w+t is short for "wrap and turn"
      Here's a video that shows how to do it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G4GxFvi4KD0 - I put the info in the post as well

    2. Thanks for this pattern! Does the w+t is the same as the t+p?
      Thanks for an answer.

    3. They are both ways of doing short rows: w+t (wrap and turn) is one way of connecting the stitches at the gap (see http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G4GxFvi4KD0) and t+p (my abbreviation of turn and pull) another - called German short rows (shown here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P6n561SMZXQ).
      Both methods produce a similar result - it's just a question of which method you prefer. Just make sure that the stitch that is wrapped is the same that's being pulled back (i.e. creating the double stitch).
