I think after reading this, I will now give short rows a try. It’s been something that I have wanted to try for a while now. Thanks!

Thanks - I could not understand any instuctions but yours!

The sweater I am working is knitted in the round from the top down. Short rows across the back and sleeves(which are also increasing in size at the same time) begin after a three-inch yoke. I can't seem to avoid holes in some places and crowded stitches in others . . . Any suggestions? Thank you.

Judith, sorry for the late response. I was at a spinning retreat and then got sick after that.

For the sleeves check out my blurb on shaped cap sleeves (http://www.purlwise.com/2004/02/post_1.html#comments). It explains how I did short rows on a top down sweater. It has a link a post I did about "snugging" up stitches.

For the stitches on the back, I'm not sure what to do other than pick up more stitches on the first row and then decrease them on the second.

Hope that helps,
