Hi, All:I have never knitted short row toes before...and I have to admit, I'm a little intimidated by them...that's probably why I keep putting them off...LOL. Does anybody know an easier and less painful way of how to do them? I looked on Knitty.com and their instructions for the short row and OMG...I don't think I want to tackle that! :shock: Can somebody please help? Thanks in advance
I love short row heels and toes! Here is a tutorial I found very helpful:
Let me know if I can help at all. They are so much fun!
I've just completed my 1st short row toe & it was relatively painless Although, I didn't use the regular short row toe, but the [http://hipknitism.com/classes/basic_ribbed_socks/lesson4.shtml]Sherman]( [url) heel/toe method, which worked like a charm I knit the toe exactly as the heel was done, I did my toe shaping on the same needles as the heel & it's then kitchenered together on the top of the foot like machine knit socks are done. You can see how the toe looked here before I grafted it together, the completed sock here. Oh, I knit my sock cuff down I highly recommend the sherman heel & toe as the 1st short row shaping on a sock
[color=blue][b]Wow![/b][/color] Thanks so much to both of you....These are so much easier to follow...I can't wait to try them!!! :cheering:
I learnt how to do W&T short rows here.
I love making toe-up socks this way.
