NOTES

WRP-T (WRAP AND TURN)
Keeping yarn in back, slip next stitch purlwise from left needle to right needle. Bring yarn to front. Return slipped stitch to left needle. Turn work so wrong side is facing you.

To see this technique in action, visit our Short Row Tutorial and follow along with the wrap and turn on the knit side section (at 0:30 seconds), except do not bring the yarn to the back before you turn.

KNIT WITH WRAP
Keeping yarn in back, pick up the wrap with the right needle from front to back and then insert the needle into the stitch knitwise. Knit the stitch and wrap together.

This step is described at minute 3:29 of our Short Row Tutorial.

CONSTRUCTION
You will knit this piece lengthwise.

Due to its construction, the unblocked dimensions are fixed to a set ratio. The length of the scarf can be altered by casting on any number of stitches, and the width dimensions will always be approximately 90% of the length. If wet blocking, the piece should block out to an approximate square.
