POM POM PRESENTS – GERMAN SHORT ROWS

pom-pom-presents

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 offcrochet 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.

You’ll find this technique used for the shapely shoulders in Pom Pom projects such as Carlu, Serafine and Nouri.

If your pattern asks you to W&T (wrap and turn) you’ll now know what to do!

Thanks again to Blue Sky Fibres for their support and for their beautiful Spud & Chloë.

    What a great little tutorial. I’ve used W&T stitches in multiple projects and very much appreciate another way to mold my needlework into the necessary shapes. And wow – That Spud & Chloe fiber is luscious.
