I tried to make this scarf and got stuck on the part where you have to pick up all wraps.
what does that mean?
Is there a video of this whole scarf and not just the wrap and turn method?

I don't understand when they say to pick up all wraps and place them on the right needle, transfer them back to the left needle and knit them together. Would you be able to help me with this? thank you in advance for any help you can give me.

Is there somewhere to find the wrap method written out. I have watched the video and just don't get it. Thank you.

What a lovely scarf! It is very different from any I've seen. I'm definitely making this one for myself. Thank you so much for sharing.
