Japanese Short Rows

VIDEO TUTORIAL

Japanese short rows are my favourite method for working short rows. They use less yarn than the wrap and turn method, resulting in an almost invisible turn.

Need a pattern to practice this new technique? Try out the Ebb & Flow blanket from my book, Tempest. It’s the perfect beginner’s project for practicing short rows.

Eventide was also mentioned in the video. The shoulders and back neck are shaped using short rows.

Japanese short rows can be substituted in any pattern that calls for the wrap and turn (W&T) technique. Here are a few more Holli Yeoh patterns with short rows.
