Short-rows are a wonderful knitting technique to have in your arsenal of knitting skills. You can use them to make bust darts, add height at the back of the neck, make those longer back hems that are all the rage, and simply add length or additional room wherever you need it in your knitted garment.
Craftsy.com is well-known for their wonderful online classes, and it's just introduced a new FREE class from Carol Feller, all about short-rows. Here's some information about this invaluable class.
