How to knit short rows with wrap on wrong side (WS)

Tags: short rows,

In this DROPS video we show how you can knit short rows with a wrap on the wrong side (WS).

When knitting short rows you can shape the garment by making soft curves or give a better fit by creating bust darts. Short rows are partially knitted rows before turning. By turning with a wrap you avoid a hole at the turning point.

Short row from WS: Work number of sts told in pattern, place yarn in back of work, slip following st purl-wise, place yarn in front of work, slip st back on left needle, turn and work the row back. When working next row and getting to the st with wrap; work wrap and stitch together as one stitch and then finish row.

You must read the pattern to be able to follow. You’ll find patterns where you can use this technique by clicking on the pictures below.

The video above can be used in the following patterns

Dear Mrs Gentempo, I'm not sure about the pattern you are talking about, can you please post your question on the pattern you are working on? Remember also you can always get help from the store where you bought the yarn, even per mail or telephone. Happy knitting!

Bonjour Mme Cochard, d'après les informations que vous indiquez ici, je comprends qu'il vous d'abord tricoter 2 rangs sur les 6 premières m, puis 4 m de plus soit 2 rangs sur les 10 premières m, puis 4 m de plus soit 2 rangs sur les 14 premières m etc. S'il s'agit d'un modèle DROPS, n'hésitez pas à laisser un commentaire sous la page de ce modèle pour une réponse plus détaillée. Bon tricot!
