An essential skill

Short Row Shaping aka Partial knitting is an essential skill for all machine knitters.
Partial knitting is just as it sounds knit part of a row of knitting instead of the entire row. Instead of knitting just squares and rectangles, short row shaping is used to shape your knitting.

Here are a few uses
  • Shoulder Slopes
  • Bust Darts
  • Curved hems
  • Shaping heels and toes of socks
  • Mitered corners
  • Knitting Circles

NOTE: We use the terms Partial Knitting and Short Row Shaping interchangeably
