Wrapped yarn-over stitches


Jag kommer snart att ha med ett mönster i en stor nättidning, därför tänkte jag förklara en del speciella sticksätt jag använder. Tidningen är på engelska, så därför får det bli det.

Since I use som pretty unusual stitches in my patterns sometimes, I will try to explain some of them. Today, wrapped yarn-over stitches. I've never seen them anywhere, I dreamed them up on my own. If you have seen them before, please let me know, it would be very interesting.


Wrapped yarn-over stitch, knit

Hold yarn in front.

Slip the knit yo-stitch purlwise.

Stitch slipped.

Reach through the yo below from the back to the front.

Fetch a loop of the yarn.

And pull a new stitch trough.

With left needle, pull the old stitch over the new one.

Result: A stitch knit through the back loop, with the yarn wrapped around the yarn-over below.


Wrapped yarn-over stitch, purled

With yarn in back, slip stitch as if to purl through the back loop.

Reach through the yo below from the front to the back.

Fetch a loop of the yarn.


And pull a new stitch trough.

With left needle, pull the old stitch over the new one.

Result: A twisted purl stitch, with the yarn wrapped around the yarn-over below.

Easy as pie, right?

  3. Hello Maria,

    This looks to be an excellent way of doing yarn overs. Do you use a special way to pick up the wraps? Or - in my fascination to get through the idea, did I miss that? You must have a very clear mind to have been able to think this through before it is completed! Congratulations on your successful new way to do wrapped stitches. Also your Lingerie Socks and others are absolutely wonderful in the use of techniques.

    Thanks so much for sharing these ideas of techniques and sock patterns. Also for putting them into such great English. Your sock designs are dreamy.

  4. Thank you dove! I enjoy doing things a bit differently.

    Not really sure what you mean by picking up the wraps - once the wrapped stitch is done, it is left like that, not being picked up. If you could clarify your question, I could try to answer.

    Best
    Maria
