  • Which way do you cast on? Right to Left (Clockwise), or Left to Righ(Counter Clockwise)?

  • Is there any way you could do a video on the following section of the pattern, I don’ understand it, thanks so much,

    *Move the stitches as follows. Go to the peg with the YO (ewrap).

    With the right hand, remove the YO (ewrap) from the peg and hold it.
    With left hand, remove the loop that is on the peg (same peg that had the YO).
    Place the loop from the right hand on the empty peg.
    Transfer loop from the left hand to the right.
    Lift the loop from the next peg (to the left) and hold it with the left hand.
    Repeat steps 3 to 5: 3x.
    Place the last loop on next empty peg.**

  • I’ll try to explain it in another way.

    You will need a stitch holder (a safety pin works) for this method. Let’s say you are doing the shawlette.

    Assume you are on the first section. You have 4 pegs on the left, (pegs 18, 17, 16, and 15) peg 15 has the YO (an extra ewrap, correct?

    Place the YO (the ewrap) on a stitch holder and leave it there.

    Move the loop on peg 18 over to its neighbor empty peg to the left, peg 19. You have just moved one of the stitches over one spot.

    Move loop from peg 17 to the peg vacated previously (peg 18).

    Repeat the same process with loop on peg 16, (moving it over to peg 17).

    Repeat the same process with loop on peg 15( move it to peg 16) Peg 15 is empty.

    Place the ewrap that is in the stitch holder on peg 15.

  • Hi Raelyn,
    Cast on from left to right so that the first row is from Right to Left.
