I understand the wrap and turn part, but am not understanding the "working tog wrapped st." part. Just plain knitting that stitch and what I end up with (after two sets) doesn't look bad, seems like scarf will curve on one side, but picture doesn't look quite like that.

This is called wrap and turn short row shaping, the german short row shaping does not have a wrap. The reason your project has a curl to it is because you are not working the short row shaping correctly. There is a good tutorial here- https//www.craftsy.com/knitting/article/wrap-and-t == urn/

This is called a german short row. You tube has a tutorial under German short row.

I am not sure what "wyib" means. I am guessing "with yarn in back"???

wyib means with yarn in back.

This is great! An adorable scarf with short row shaping-can't wait to get started!

if you google "wrap knitting", there are lots of you tube videos on it. It really does not look that bad after watching a couple videos, but the knitter should have explained it.

I don't know what a wrapped stitch means can someone enlighten me please?

wrap and turn-you are wrapping the last stitch you work without actually knitting it. when you get to the stitch to be wrapped, you bring your yarn forward as if to purl, slip the stitch to be wrapped from left to right hand needle without actually knitting it, then you put the yarn back between the needles to its proper position and work back the other way. There are you tube videos that demonstrate how to wrap and turn. hope this helps.

I do not consider myself to be an experienced knitter but I feel that I have past the beginner stage. With that being said, this patter is making no sense to me. I think I understand what it means to wrap a stitch but what does working tog wrapped stitch mean. If you knit them together, you will lose a stitch on each row. Could someone please clarify

usually when knitting back on short row shaping you would stop at or before the wrapped stitch the pattern is simply telling you that you continue working past the wrapped stitch and that it is expected.

ty for asking that question forenaught 9755157 I was wondering the same...and I am not a beginning knitter.

Can you explain what you mean by wrap stitch? Thanks
