Short Rows Tutorial Part 2: Wrap and Turn Short Rows

posted in: short rows, techniques, tutorial | 4

Today I’m going to be showing you how to do the classic wrap and turn short rows. These short rows are easy to employ and don’t leave any holes in your knitting. They are not as invisible as other ways to wrap and turn, but are easy to work.

In this example I will be working 3 sets of paired short rows (to create a curve in the middle) on a swatch that is 30 stitches wide, and each wrap and turn will be two stitches from the end, then two stitches from the previous wrap and turn.

 Below you’ll see the 6 wrapped stitches after being knit with the wraps.

Tomorrow I’ll be posting step-by-step instructions for the yarn over short rows.

    Thank you for such great help here with all new ideas like this helps so much, as many of us have not knitted for many years some of these techniques you forget. Once again thanks, sorry I don’t think about web sight as I don’t post any thing just enjoy knitting again, so don’t see need.

    Thank you for such clean view of short rows. I have been doing a sweater with yarn overs and starting to understand the concept.
