    I’ve nearly finished knitting your lovely Ravi Junior for my youngest granddaughter. I wondered which short row method you used on the yoke section, as I didn’t pick up the wraps having disliked the wrap and turn method on this garment and reading that you could just not pick them up with it being garter stitch. Your rows which pick up the wraps look much nicer than mine and give a more definite line, which I think adds to the attractiveness of the pattern. I’d like to knit this for another grandchild, so I’d really appreciate it , if you could let me know. Thanks Ingrid

    In the garment I did I used the Japanese Short Row Method. However my current favourite for short rows in garter stitch is the German Method which works really well!
