Short Row resources

I collected together some videos of the techniques we talked about at guild.

Cat Bordhi Wrap and Turn

Ysolda does the same thing as Japanese short rows using scrap yarn instead of pins, she calles this technique Wrapless short rows.

(Note: I think she makes an unfair comparison as the left side short rows often don't look as good as the right side, but her instructions are good and clear)

"Thanks Ma" from Cat Bordhi's Sweet Tomato Heel

And here is a Free Craftsy Class on short rows. 

It discusses Wrap and Turn, Yarn over, and Japanese Short rows, but also has a section on how to work them in shoulders, sleeves, and bust lines, so those of you wanting more specific information on how to add them for your own shape might find it there.
