Tips & Techniques
Class Details:
The short row has many useful functions when it comes to shaping your knitting. It has become a common technique to see in patterns, but many knitters struggle with finding a method that works well for them. In this class we will practice and compare four different types of short rows focusing on the necessary specifics to make them as invisible as possible in your work. Gudrun will also give a broad description of how short rows are used in knitting, but primarily this class is about practicing the different variations in the hope that you find one you like and solve any mysteries you may have previously had with holes in your short rows! Technique Requirements: Knit/purl; cast on/bind off; increase/decrease; have knit a few accessories
Supplies for Class:
200 yards of worsted-weight yarn (please do not use variegated or very dark yarn). US size 7 (4.5mm) straight or circular needles. It is important that you work at a gauge appropriate for the yarn you are using. A looser gauge will always allow the short row to be more visible in the knitting so aim for a tighter gauge. Change needle size if necessary
