    All of your sweaters are so nice. Do any of your sweater patterns include short rows at the upper back/neck area so the back is a little higher than the front? Just wondering which, if any, have the short rows before I purchase them. Thanks.

      Yep, some do and some don’t it depends on the pattern. Do you have one in mind? Cartography, Marshland, and Moraine don’t include short row shaping at the back neck (the modeled sweaters don’t have it)

      The patterns from our Strange Brew book that include short-row shaping: Mountain Mist, Icefall, Trek, Almanac, Compass, and the Strange Brew sweater recipe. The patterns that don’t include it (because it doesn’t work with the patterning): Moraine, Marshland, Compass. Hope this helps!
