Last summer I bought a new addition to my growing knitting library and a new skill to my knitting repertoire. Short rows! It’s a knitting method that uses increases and decreases to create totally new shapes and designs. As you can see above, I knitted a couple of fun wavy-edge scarves in 2 different variegated yarns. This particular pattern comes from one of my new favorite books; I picked mine up at a knitting shop, but it’s also available online in various places:
This “Knitter’s Dozen” series is great. The selection of patterns is usually pretty nice, and this particular edition shows some near ways of using some of the new yarns in those gorgeous colorways. I had a fantastic time knitting these, and plan to make more.
