Tips & Techniques
Short rows, the act of working a partial row and then turning, offer amazing possibilities to both shape knitting and for stunning graphic effects. You will learn a basic “wrap and turn,” necessary to avoid holes that form when work is turned in the center of a row. We will explore short rows with contrasting colors for visual design elements; to create flounces and ruffles; to place fullness where desired, as in bust darts; and to accommodate a need for longer lengths, such as in backs or fronts that hike up.
Technique Requirements: Knit/purl; cast on/bind off; increase/decrease; have knit a few accessories
