Class Details:

“Wrap & Turn” is not a dance move, it’s a fabulous way to create shapes with your knitting. Short rows are used for sock heels, they’re common in shawls to create, and to create ruffles. In this class we'll review four or five common methods of working short rows (and hiding them, just as important!): wrap, German, Yarnover, Shadow, Japanese. We'll talk about which methods are best suited to different situations, and how to substitute one method for another in a pattern.

Technique Requirements: knit/purl, cast on/bind off, increase/decrease, suitable for knitters with no short row experience, but also for those with some who want to improve and expand their skills



Supplies for Class:

Scrap light-colored medium-weight yarn and 4-5mm/US #6-8 needles, 8 removable stitch markers or small safety pins
