The features article “Beyond the Basics: Short Rows, The Sequel,” by Veronik Avery describes the most common ways that short rows are used in basic knitting patterns: (1) as a substitute for stepped bind-offs, (2) to add length to particular areas, (3) to create a pouch in place of darts or gussets, and (4) to shape a curved edge (on hats, skirts, etc.).
