Yesterday I decided to go off-pattern with my short rows. I’m working modified short rows again today but this time I’m following the pattern! I’m working my second WestKnits’ Batad! I really love this pattern, it’s so fun to knit and the short rows are easy peasy! Instead of messing with the whole wrap & turn and picking up the wraps, the pattern simply turns, eliminating the wraps entirely! It leaves a hole in the fabric and that’s okay! It’s a design feature (a real design feature not a “design feature”, if ya know what I mean.)
It doesn’t look like much yet, but it’s grown a lot since Monday. You can clearly see the short rows are working, one side is much longer than the other! I expect to be wearing it very soon!
