Short Rows: German Short Rows

This week we’ll look at German short rows. I really like this technique, because it’s easy to perform, easy to see where your short rows are, and easy to resolve the short rows. It isn’t always the best choice for a particular fabric, but when I’m not extremely concerned about the look of the fabric (at sock heels, for example) they tend to be my go-to short row method.

Here’s a video showing how they are worked:

I hope this was helpful! Next week we’ll look at shadow short rows.

Until next time, Happy Knitting!
