View Full Version : Short Row Toe
05-13-2006, 01:40 PM
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

:D 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[/url] 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 (http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y119/rebeccame/2006%20a%20new%20year%20in%20KNITTING/DSCN1238.jpg) before I grafted it together, the completed sock here (http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y119/rebeccame/2006%20a%20new%20year%20in%20KNITTING/DSCN1259.jpg). Oh, I knit my sock cuff down :D I highly recommend the sherman heel & toe as the 1st short row shaping on a sock :thumbsup:

I learnt how to do W&T short rows here. (http://wendyjohnson.net/blog/sockpattern.htm)
I love making toe-up socks this way. :thumbsup:
