Short Row Sweater

Short Row Sweater
Pattern: My Own
Yarn: Lion Brand Micro Spun, Patons Brilliant, Lion Brand Fun Fur
Needles: US 11
Info: A friend of my mother has a sweater that is made using this technique. My mom (seen here) brought the sweater home and asked if I could make her one because she liked it so much, and her friend couldn't find another one. When I first saw the sweater I was very intrigued and was kinda dumbfounded because I wasn't sure exactly how they did it. After a while I realized that the sweater was done completely with short rows. The sweater is made in one piece, the arms are knit in the round and have no "seams" as there is no right side up or down. Because the body of the sweater is round you can also have a "hood"
