  • This is SO just what I needed! Read, enjoyed, appreciated and bookmarked! Thank you.

  • Perfect! Thank you

  • Asa Tricosa used short rows extensively in her Ziggerats. Which one of these methods conforms to what she recommends? She also talks about Japanese short rows. Thanks.

    • I’m sorry, I don’t know the details of the Ziggurats… perhaps someone else can weigh in on that?

  • So helpful! Thank you!

  • So helpful to echo others
    Thank you

  • Is the conversion from w&t to German short rows different if you’re going short to long instead of long to short? Thanks!

    • It’s exactly the same either way!

  • When you resolve a (German) short row in the round, on the right side, that you’ve set up on the purl side, how do you avoid a hole? I resolved 3, but one of them was wonky. I’m not sure what happened, but I couldn’t fix it! (going to stitch it shut)

  • Funny business! Ha, love it. Thanks Kate.

    I did W&T for years and always hated how noticeable the wraps were. Then I discovered German short rows and they are now a firm favorite, they are as close to invisible as it’s possible for short rows to be, IMO.

  • Love your descriptions Kate. They made me smile 😀
