Short Rows: Wrap and Turn in Garter

I’m starting a series of videos on short row methods. The first video focuses on wrap and turn short rows – without picking up the wraps. This is my favorite method to use for garter stitch, since I think it looks the absolute best of all the techniques in that fabric.

You can use this method in other fabrics as well. It will leave a noticeable purl bar, so keep that in mind. It may look fine in some lace fabrics, or if you want to draw attention to the short rows.

Next week I’ll cover wrap and turn short rows where the wraps get picked up and hidden.

Until next time, Happy Knitting!
