How to Knit Short Rows Part 1 – Wrap & Turn

This post is the first half of a two-part tutorial on how to work short rows in knitting. While it is written specifically as support for my face mask pattern (you can grab a copy for yourself here if you would like), this knowledge can be easily integrated for use in other projects as well. Please note that the face mask is worked in k1, p1 ribbing, so this tutorial shows the short rows worked in k1, p1 ribbing also.

You can watch a video version of this tutorial immediately below, or scroll down for written step by steps with accompanying photos…

Short Rows Part 1 – Wrap & Turn:

Step 1: Work across your row until you reach the stitch you will wrap…

Step 2: Bring yarn between the needles, to the front…

Step 3: Slip the next stitch purlwise, from the left needle onto the right needle…

Step 4: Bring yarn between the needles, to the back…

Step 5: Turn work {keeping yarn to the front after the turn}…

Step 6: Slip the stitch purlwise, from the left needle onto the right needle…

Step 7: Bring yarn between the needles, to the back of the work…

Step 8: Wrap & Turn complete!
Continue working in pattern {k1, p1 ribbing in this case} until your next wrap & turn, you reach the end of the row, or you’re ready to work Part 2: Pick up & Knit!
