Adding the Short Rows


I’m just at the point where I’ll be starting the short rows and I thought some of you might want to see what the top looks like before they’re added.
A side view shows it best. There’s about an inch and a half gap between where the sweater falls at the side and where it falls in the center of the sweater. That gap will be filled with the short rows.
The length of the gap is how you determine how many short rows to do. I know I need to fill in 1.5 inches, which equals 9 or 10 rows at my gauge. I need an even number of rows so I’ll do 10 rows, or 5 short row wraps per side.
I’m off to do the short rows now, and if I have a chance I’ll snap another pic right after I’m done with them so you can see the transformation.
