One of the most versatile yet amazing techniques of all time is the short row technique. It is the process behind creation of a range of intriguing designs that primarily comprises of knitting a row halfway and then reversing the work to go back again and repeat the same stitches. This is what is repeated again and again to form rows after one another. It goes beyond saying that you can come up with a number of patterns using the short rows. To carry out the short tow technique, it is always recommended that you use the circular needles as it limits the risk of losing the stitch when you perform the reverse process.
