The Japanese Short Row Shoulder

Anyone else do this? I just finished the Right Front and gave it a shot. I think it might work out so that I can do the 3 needle bind off. This is my first adult garment and I am a bit nervous about the finish work and want to do a nice job.

Hope to finish this knit before it's too warm to wear it. Oops--too late. It was in the 80's this weekend!!

Juls... I'm assuming that is a front that you have pictured there. I'm not sure what you've done differently, but I know on my fronts the 10 stitches that you hold for later are all part of the cable pattern... the 2 purls, then 6 knits, then 2 purls. It seems that you've bound off part of your cable, but you will need it to make it join the top of the hoodie.

Does that make sense?

As for the japanese short row shoulder, I'm not sure what you mean. I did do some short rows and a modified three needle bind-off, but not sure if it was the Japanese version.

Man.. I need to take a post some pictures soon! Gotta fun some yarn to seam that matches and won't break as easily as the yorkshire tweed I'm knitting it with. :)

I am planning on doing the short row shoulders but I haven't gotten there yet! I read about the different versions (including Japanese) on Nona's blog. Sounds good to me though!

i did short row shaping on the shoulders and then the three needle bind off. i think it turned out really well! the color your using is really sweet, i love it!

I love your color too. What yarn is that?
I did short row shaping and the three-needle bindoff on the shoulders, but I should have practiced first and made sure I really knew what I was doing. There were some holes! I fixed them when I picked up the hood, but it's not perfect.
