i found the info that helped me Smiley from www.fruitychick.com

i was trying to only have 4 sts total unworked instead of 4 at the end of the p row and 4 at the end of the k row.

by marking the beginning of needle 3, this is pretty easy! you end up with 4 sts after the wrap on needle 3 and 4 sts after working the k row that are "unworked" this is when you switch to the k3 turn, work turn st instructions.

wrapping a stitch usually means stop working just before the st to be wrapped, bring yarn to the opposite side as you've been working(i.e. yarn in front if you were knitting, yarn in back if you were purling), slip st to be wrapped, bring yarn back to regular side, slip st back, then turn to work the next st--but be sure to maintain tension!  A loose wrap usually results in holes.

There's  a video of a short-row wrap on http://knittinghelp.com/knitting/advanced_techniques/ (scroll down).

thank you! Smiley

unfortunately it isn't so much the art of wrapping, but the bits between the stitch count which is causing confusion for me.

I love the socks http://magknits.com/Oct07/patterns/rainbow.htm

however my brain seems to have a block against them.

i can't get on with her way of describing the wrap.
if changing wrap method, i have presumed that you k or p one less than she states then work wrap method of choice (as most wrap methods don't require you to k or p the stitch with which you will work the wrap on the next row first)

so the first bits would be k turn, work turn st
2p turn, work turn st
2k work wrap with st 3k turn work turn st
is this correct?

if it is,then i can't seem to get the bit right where it says "work until 4 sts remain unworked"

i've spent all weekend knitting, frogging, reknitting frogging, playing with the pattern-pen and paper in hand etc etc

several people on ravelry seem to have mastered them, so i do think that it's my brain overcomplicating things, but if someone could type out the instructions in long hand for a few rows, it would be great!

If you do substitute needle, you will want to make sure you rotate your needle around.  If not, it will have an obvious size different in your item. 

The other thing you can try is use your two dpn plus the circular needle.  Then you can knit with three needles arranged in a circlar and the other end of your circular as working needle.  Hope it makes sense.

Have fun.  Smiley

the odd sized one would automatically be rotated when knitting in the round. your circular sub idea is very clever!!
