Ready to get your needle tips around the latest in our series of video tutorials? By now you’ve had a go at i-cord bind off, the afterthought technique, three needle bind off, crochet provisional cast on and kitchener stitch – now it’s time to master German Short Rows.
Short rows are a way to add an extra wedge of fabric to your knitting. Rather than knitting across a row to the end, you’ll turn in the middle of your work and use a clever stitch maneuver so there won’t be any holes! By working back and forth with short rows, you can create a beautiful curve of extra knitting that can really transform the fit of a garment.
If your pattern asks you to W&T (wrap and turn) you’ll now know what to do!
