Short rows allow you to add length to certain areas of your knitting without adding it to an entire row, creating curves and three-dimensional shaping. Learn to create short-rows through five easy-to-learn methods: wrap and turn knitting, the yarnover method, German short-rows, Japanese short-rows, and twin stitch shadow wraps. We’ll discuss how to use short row shaping to custom tailor garments for your body.
