My Dartmeet shawl uses German short rows to insert a wedge at each end of the shawl. In the photo above you can see the short rows worked in garter stitch and below you can see a section of short rows worked in a simple lace pattern. Don't worry, you actually stop the lace pattern a few stitches before you turn so the lace pattern isn't affected by the short rows.
In the video below, I work short rows in stocking stitch but as Dartmeet is worked in garter stitch, you basically treat each row as a right side row.
