After Chart B on Raupen Wrap

There were a couple of questions on Ravelry about working Chart B and the Beads and Buds section after that, so I’m posting this here in case anyone else has the same question.

After you finish chart A, you will work Chart B (with 4 garter sts at each end and in the center) until all rows of Chart B have been worked twice.  So you work rows 1-8 of chart B, then start over on row 1 and you will have to repeat the box section more than once because you’ll have more stitches on the second time you knit those rows.

Then after that, the center 4 sts go away.

To set up the Beads and Buds, you work this row:

K4, sm, work Chart C, pm, k3, (k2, bead-k1, k1) across to 3 sts before last marker (removing the center 2 markers when you come to them), k3, pm, work Chart C, sm, k4—4 sts increased.

The bold part goes all the way across between the chart C sections and when you get to those center 2 markers, just take them out and keep going as written in the bold section. You’re placing a marker at the beginning and end of this Beads and Buds section instead. But they’re not near the center.

Chart C is those “corner” triangles that are just beginning as you work the Beads and Buds. The Chart C corners continue up to the border.

Hope this helps!

  1. This is a summary of how the second repeat of Chart B goes:
    Work garter edge.
    Starting at the edge of Chart B, work across the row to the red box.
    Work the stitches in the red box.
    When you get to the end of the red box, go back to the beginning of the red box and do it again.
    Work stitches that come after the red box, ending at the other edge of Chart B.
    Work centre garter column.
    Starting at the edge of Chart B, work across the row to the red box.
    Work the stitches in the red box.
    When you get the end of the red box, go back to the beginning of the red box and do it again.
    Work the stitches that come after the red box, ending at the other edge of Chart B.
    Work garter edge.

    For example, the first row of the second repeat of Chart B goes like this:
    Knit 4 for garter edge
    Ignore stitches 1 & 2 of row 1 of Chart B (they are grey because there is no stitch there until later in the chart)
    Work stitches 3-15 of row 1 of Chart B (this is what comes before the red box)
    Work stitches 16-29 of row 1 of Chart B (this is what is in the red box)
    Work stitches 16-29 of row 1 of Chart B again (repeat the red box)
    Work stitches 30-39 of row 1 of Chart B (this is what comes after the red box)
    Ignore stitches 40 & 41 of row 1 of Chart B (they are grey because there is no stitch there until later in the chart)
    Knit 4 for centre garter column
    Ignore stitches 1 & 2 of row 1 of Chart B (they are grey because there is no stitch there until later in the chart)
    Work stitches 3-15 of row 1 of Chart B (this is what comes before the red box)
    Work stitches 16-29 of row 1 of Chart B (this is what is in the red box)
    Work stitches 16-29 of row 1 of Chart B again (repeat the red box)
    Work stitches 30-39 of row 1 of Chart B (this is what comes after the red box)
    Ignore stitches 40 & 41 of row 1 of Chart B (they are grey because there is no stitch there until later in the chart)
    Knit 4 for garter edge.

  2. Thanks for making clear we are to work the 8 rows again. But what is the ” box section” ? Working 25 sts.of row 8 again will yield an additional 12 sts, which together with the other side’s new 12, plus garter sts will yield 110.

    But there are 12 sts left over from row 8. ( Presumably it takes 25 sts from row8 to start over the pattern ,right? That leaves 12.)what do we do with those?

    Thanks for a great series. Anne Solomon

    • No, there’s no place where you just slip 12 sts. You will work chart B between the garter stitch sections. So there is 4 garter stitch, then chart B, then 4 garter stitch, then chart B, then 4 garter stitch. I am guessing those are the 12 sts that you are confused about.
