A “short row” is simply what happens when you work across a row but don’t get to the end. The pattern instructs you to go almost to the end (maybe one or two stitches before), and then turn around and go back. This creates a domed shape that is good for heels and other curvy parts of the body.

You Taught Me How to Read my Knitting

I just wanted to say that you are unbelievably awesome. You have a way of so calmly explaining (and showing) but also of teaching. I love the way you made the wrap and turn make sense. For years I've been writing down hieroglyphics, putting in markers to note where to W&T, often messing it up, and you, in your gentle way, explained it. It makes sense. You taught me how to read my knitting rather than just follow charts or counts.
