I was searching for the circular shawl that was shown on the Laura Bryant segment, and I found Prism Yarns 4203 Spriral Scarf or Wrap on the Patternfish website.  I think it looks like what was shown on the show, and the description says it uses short rows.

I would appreciate written-down instructions for the short-row techniques; Eunny went a little fast for me. Or am I expected to buy the DVD?

Where would I find the patterns for the circular yoke sweater shown in the first and last segments of Get Shorty.  Also, on Laura Bryant's segment she put on a wrap done in short rows --- I found the scarf and plan to make it soon but I would like to find the other two.  Can you help?

Thanks, Charlotte
