German Short Rows Knitting

German Short Rows Knitting


Welcome to my channel, I’m Kristina and
in today’s video I will show you one more short Rows method – German short rows.
This is one of my favorite short rows method before I discovered Japanese
short rows. If you are interested I will leave the link below you can go and
watch, but today I will show you how to do the short rows. It is also very easy
and neat technique where almost the.. short rows are almost invisible in your
knitting. So, let’s star!t Let’s say the pattern says knit until 5 stitches left
on the needle, so. I need to knit three more and now I need to turn my work, so..
what I do I just turn the work on the other side.For the German short rows the
working yarn always should come in front of your knitting. I turn and now the
working yarn is in front of my knitting so what I do now I need to slip this
stitch as to purl on the right hand needle. I do this and here where the
trick comes – I need to create a double stitch by pulling the working yarn. You see
I am pulling the both legs of the previous from the previous stitch in the
row creating a double stitch is how it looks just don’t pull it too tight and just
leave the tension is all the other stitches on the needle and next I’m
doing the purling because I’m knitting stockinette and now I just continue to
purl until my pattern says that I need to turn. Let’s say I knit and I need
to turn on the right side this what I do I turn and as I said now the working
yarn is behind the knitting you need to bring it to the front and do the same
procedure you slip as to purl the stitch on to the right hand needle and now you
need to create the double stitch again, so, I just put the working yarn like that To create the double stitch here. On
the right side it will look funny but don’t worry! Later you will see that
that’s fine, that’s how it should be. I just continue knitting and I will show
you how to work off the German short rows. German short rows you will not miss
you will see it immediately this is this funny double stitch and you treat it as
one so I want to wor off the stitch and I just knit it as normal knit stitch. There you go and I continue knitting. So, I worked off one short row. I will
show you how to do on the right side. Here I am on my wrong side of knitting
and I need to purl 2 more until I come to my short row stitch. Here it also
looks like double stitch. This funny-looking stitch you will not miss
iti so, and this one we also just purl – we treat the stitch as one and we just purl
it, that’s it and we continue knitting as usual. This is how it looks on the wrong
side and here is the right side. You see this little indicator which says
like one stitch is over two rows – these were our short rows, but in knitting it’s
almost invisible, especially after washing and blocking. Here I also did
before some short rows, obviously, you can spot them that’s why I leave the link
below for the Japanese short rows which are even neater technique than German
short rows. Thanks for watching!!! Please press LIKE and SUBSCRIBE to my channel
