Short rows:
You work short rows along the edge.
Work double stitches according to the German short rows​ technique.
Pull the working yarn up and over the stitch on your left needle, pull to tighten and you have created a “double stitch” (2 stitches). Slip this double stitch on to your right needle. Knit or purl the double stitch together in the next row.

Increases:
Pick up the strand between 2 stitches with your left needle and knit through back loop.

Picot edge:
At the end you work a crocheted picot edge along the outside edge of the bib.
