I just came up with this. Very easy to do on my swatch, and it looks good. The real question is: what does it feel like on a garment? And how will it block?

I'm going to give this a try on my current project and will let you know.

Speaking of new ways to work short rows, Knitting Daily just posted a blog entry about a new (to me, anyway) way to work them. I haven't tried it yet, but I plan to give it a go on my next swatch to see if I like it.

Here it is:

I looked at it, too, and thought it was too hard. Try German short rows, there are videos on Youtube. The video with the lime green swatch is good.
