Short rows are a fun and simple technique for shaping your knitting that allows you to knit a gentle curve or slope by adding extra length of fabric to parts of your knitting. Short rows can be used for almost any shaping: the shoulders of sweaters, the heels of socks, custom-fitting the bust area, or perhaps ad a gentle curve to the bottom of a sweater.
In this workshop we take a look how to use short rows in more untraditional places too; to shape a shawl, add a wedge, or even instead of intarsia! During this workshop you will learn:
- Different types of short rows
- How to use short rows for fit
- How to use short rows for shape
- Short rows in different stitch patterns and how to choose the best technique
Small balls of yarn, for example leftovers from previous projects, in small variety of colors. Needles suitable to work with you yarn (needles you can use for small circumference knitting in the round and for knitting flat).
