Short Rows: Yarnover Short Rows

This week we will be looking a yarnover short rows. These are easily substituted for wrap and turn short rows. They aren’t too tricky once you get the hang of making the yarnovers, but hiding the yarnover can be a little tricky.

Here’s a video showing how to work these:

I don’t use these very often – I find wrap and turn to be easier, but they are another option!

Next week we’ll look at the last in this series for now – Japanese short rows.

Until then, Happy Knitting!


Short Rows: Shadow Wrap Short Rows

Today we’re looking at another short row technique – shadow wrap short rows, also called mother-daughter, or twinned stitch, short rows.

I really like these, especially for sock heels. (As long as there are a few full rounds worked at the heel between the two wedges. It gets too bulky working the next wedge right after the first wedge otherwise.) It’s easy to see where your short rows are, since the twinned stitches are easy to see on the needles, and it’s super easy to resolve them.

Here is a video showing these:

I hope this was informative!

Next week we’ll look at Yarnover short rows.

Until next time, Happy Knitting!!
