Short Rows: Japanese Short Rows

This will be the last in this series for the time being. This week, I look at Japanese short rows.

This method looks really nice in stockinette stitch. In part because of the slipped stitch, and in part because of the minimal yarn used in the “wrap”. Marking the thread but not wrapping keeps that loop really small.
It’s fiddly to work, though- and you’ll need removeable stitch markers or bobby pins (or scrap yarn) to mark the working yarn at the turning locations.

I hope these short row videos have been helpful!

Until next time, Happy Knitting!
