I’m sure this isn’t innovative. I have no doubt that lots of people already do it this way. There seemed to be some interest a few weeks ago when I mentioned that I do my short rows without wraps so I planned to show you how I do it exactly. When I had to do the short rows finishing up Sprout, I took some photos of how I handle short rows on right and wrong sides.
First – when the directions say wrap and turn. Turn and then slip the next stitch. The fancy stuff comes in when you need to work the stitches back in.
When we need to work and work in the stitches, work up to the space including the st that you slipped, you’re now at the break.
That stitch I’m pointing to is the one that you need to pick up and place on the LHN
This is a piece of the finished fabric that has 2 of the short row pick ups. You can pick out where they are if you blow up the picture (click to see it bigger). Otherwise as a full sweater, it’s not a noticeable short row pick up at all.
