Ready to explore knitting in a new way? Short rows open up a whole new world of possibilities. By forming multi-directional bands of color by short rows and combining feather & fan, garter and other stitches, this wrap brims with motion and spirit.

The principal of short rowing is simple: knit back and forth on a partial row leaving unused stitches on the needle until later. In more traditional designs, one eventually knits both groups of stitches evenly, carefully marking directional changes to ensure equal rows and a perfect balance. That’s not the free range style. Here, free-flowing, organic, movement rules and shapes appear as though grown of their own volition. ‘Mistake’ is not a word in my vocabulary since precise symmetry isn’t the goal so much as ‘eye balance’.
