Short rows are the most under utilized shaping tool in knitting. It takes practice to get professional results. But short rows can make any shape, up to and including entire sweaters.

There is more to it than that. Lots more. So this weekend I’m diving into an extended course on short rows and I hope you’ll be intrigued enough to dive in with me.
