  • k1 wrapping yarn twiceK1 wrapping yarn twice on RS, p1 wrapping yarn twice on WS; drop extra wrap on next row
  • k1 wrapping yarn 3 timesK1 wrapping yarn 3 times on RS, p1 wrapping yarn 3 times on WS; drop extra wraps on next row
  • p1 wrapping yarn twiceP1 wrapping yarn twice on RS, k1 wrapping yarn twice on WS; drop extra wrap on next row
  • p1 wrapping yarn 3 timesP1 wrapping yarn 3 times on RS, k1 wrapping yarn 3 times on WS; drop extra wraps on next row
  • yo wrapping yarn twiceYo wrapping yarn twice on RS and on WS; drop extra wrap on next row
  • yo wrapping yarn 3 timesYo wrapping yarn 3 times on RS and on WS; drop extra wraps on next row

With these new additions, keeping tabs on all the stitches that the site recognizes is no small task! To make life a little easier, the Contribute and Edit pages now feature a series of convenience buttons, grouped into tabs and emblazoned with symbols:

Hover over button, and a tooltip giving that symbol’s abbreviation appears. Better yet: click on a button, and its abbreviation gets inserted into the ”Written instructions” text input area. Hopefully, this’ll make contributing and editing stitch patterns somewhat less onerous.

Enjoy!
