Work In Progress: Every Way Wrap

Happy 2013 folks! Hope this new year is prosperous and productive for everyone!

Found this pattern in an old issue of Interweave Knits while thumbing through my knitting magazine collection. I initially started it with the British wool yarn that I bought at Rhinebeck a couple months ago. I soon discover something wasn’t quite right. The cable pattern design wasn’t showing up like the display picture. The pattern requires use of worsted yarn knitted at a size 9 needle to meet gague. I discover after googling the wool yarn I had bought online that it’s actually sport weight yarn.

Briefly I was bummed, as I loved the variegated color and how it was appearing knitted up thus far. But soon found another stash of wool that I was able to use; some Brown Sheep Wool I had bought from Rhinebeck the previous year and never got around to knitting with.

And then I run into another snafu. While at a recent knit-up gathering in Brooklyn, a friend who previously had knitted with the pattern before said she remembered there was some errata with the cable directions, something I was completely unaware of. After a bit of googling I realize there indeed was a published error, but managed to find a correction via someone’s post in a knit forum. I’m exhausted. At this point it’s now my third time casting on for this pattern. Fortunately I’m on vacation and had some time to spend figuring out the changes and finally made some significant progress.

I’m quite happy with the results thus far. The only issue I have now is that I’m probably short of yarn and I may need to track down at least one more skein. I should be finished hopefully by the end of the month. Tell me what you think.

    Beautiful!!! I love it! I hope you find the additional skein you need; it would be a shame not to finish it.

    Third time’s really a charm!!!!

    Could you tell me where you found the corrected cable chart for the EVERY WAY WRAP. I have been searching the internet. I found sites saying there is an error , but the links to interweave does not show a corrected chart. I am bummed that I purchased this pattern only to find that the chart is incorrect.

    I am attempting to make the “every way wrap”. I just completed the first row of the cable panel chart and the moss stitch for that row. Now I’m confused. The next row says to “keep 1 stitch inside garter edging at end of RS rows and beginning of WS in rev St.” I don’t know exactly what that means and I have no idea how to do this. Also I’m not sure what I’m doing with the first 5 stitches in this row.
    I know how to do basic knitting but with patterns the lingo confuses me. Can anybody help me before I give up?

      Haven’t looked at the pattern in a while, but I’ll see if I can explain it. It’s a little difficult to do without a visual.

      If you have a picture of the knitted item from the pattern, you’ll see each edge of the shawl has 4 stitches of garter stitching. The quote you’re referring to talks about 1 stitch that serves as edging to distinguish the garter stitch border & the start of the moss pattern.

      It’s not as difficult as it sounds. Basically that one stitch is a stockinette stitch. If I’m describing it correctly, on RS rows that stitch is knitted and on WS rows it’s purled.

      Hope this helps. Let me know how it turns out.
