And they didn’t hurt at all! This is the shoulder of the vest. The little line is the picked up stitches. The little bumps are the German Short Rows. I’m thinking with blocking this will all be less visible.
I used both the video from PetiteKnit and a blog post from TinCanKnits to work out the short rows. They are insanely easy. I’d describe them as a mistake a new knitter would make moving the yarn across the top of the needle instead of between the needles. Then the little double stitch that is made is knit as if it were one stitch. Easy! I will never do the confusing strangled stitch kind again.
