Class Description: Short row shaping is a very popular technique for creating curves, angles, and depth simply by turning before the end of a row! You may have noticed that short row instructions have become increasingly common in the latest designs. I know of at least six different ways to create short rows and in this series you will learn 5 of these methods (the sixth being to turn the work and simply slip the last worked stitch to the right hand needle) by working a swatch in class. We will discuss when each method is most appropriate to use and special considerations and adjustments for different fabrics (i.e. garter stitch, ribbing, etc…) or when knitting in the round vs knitting flat.
In the first class we will practice the most common method – wrap & turn (w&t)
Subsquent classes cover these methods in this order:
