    2. German short rows using Double Stitches

    3. How to resolve the second double stitch when resuming knitting in the round

    Resolving a final double stitch (DS) when resuming knitting in the round after working short rows can be tricky. It requires a special maneuver to fully connect the “back and forth” parts to the “in the round” parts.

    Expert knitters Ysolda Teague and Patty Lyons have done excellent teaching work around how to resolve this last DS. My own maneuver does not fully eliminate the gap created, but I find it’s good enough. You can level up your skills even more by checking out the following links to Ysolda or Patty’s work on this issue.
