I'd like to finish this blanket before the baby comes so I finally cast on. (No, the scarves aren't done, but progress is made daily...though little side projects keep creeping up. Of course.) I have read some grumbling about the Curlicue Coverlet, but the majority seem to think the pattern is fine, just pay attention. One modification I am following is to do a provisional cast on so that there is no seaming, just a nice 3 needle bind off at the end. That works very well for me!
So here is my first issue. The first section is quite easy to do. Some short rows and wrapped stitches, not my favorite aesthetically. They are always loose, and there's that whole lift up the wrap and knit it with the stitch thing. I want to make sure that when it is time to knit these wrapped stitches, it's very clean. Any recommendations, since these stitches are more loose? Is it enough, truly, to knit the wrap with the stitch? Should I also knit through the back loop of the live stitch? Suggestions welcome!
