Short Rows: Wrap and Turn

Last week I posted about wrap and turn short rows in garter. But usually when wrap and turn short rows are used, we hide the wraps. Here is a video discussing these short rows, and how to hide the wraps on the different sides of the work.

Next week we’ll look at German short rows.

Until next time, Happy Knitting!

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!
