Short-row shaping is literally knitting a “short,” or partial, row before turning and working back in the other direction. It allows you to knit three-dimensional shapes or curved edges. I use it in these patterns to shape necklines and hemlines. There are many methods of knitting short rows, but the Shadow Wrap is by far my favorite. It is not only virtually invisible, but also quite easy to work, once you memorize the steps.

For Shadow Wraps on the wrong side, see WS SWSR with audio and WS SWSR without audio.

I have complete 1 round of SWSR. I have knit and done a shadow stitch on an right side, purled back and done a shadow stitch on purl side. I just knitted back to right side shadow stitch. I knitted them together. I am now confused what to do next my pattern says knit 7 and do shadow stitch. Do I do the knit 7 after I did the K2tog and then turn
Thank you for your help

My question is, what does “2 I-cord sts on each Front edge….” mean?
Thanks for your help
