How to knit a short row turn and sl1 but no mention of a wrap?


#1

Hi

I’m knitting some baby shorts and the nextvinstructions as me to k a few stitches then turn then sl 1

I’m confused does it want me to Sl 1 before I turn? I.e no wrap?
I’m a bit muddled

It’s a Debbie Bliss pattern

Without having the full instructions, I would assume it means to slip the first stitch after turning. There are so many short rows methods, and some of them do not require any wrapping. For example this one is a such one: https://happy-knits.blogspot.com/2009/10/no-wrap-no-gap-short-row-heel-tutorial.html

The short rows here will leave a pattern of holes. If you don’t want that, there are several other methods including w&t, German and shadow short rows to conceal the holes.
A couple of the projects on Ravelry alter the pattern to include a short row technique.
