Class: Learn to Knit Short Rows with Kim Langley at our store on September 22th from 1:00-3:00pm

$ 35.00

Short rows are a fascinating knitting technique that can be used to turn a heel, create a toe, add a little extra length to a sweater or raise the back of a neckline. This simple technique, however, is misunderstood and feared by many knitters.

In this class you will learn how to execute short rows as a basic technique. You will learn the difference between German short rows and Wrap & Turn. You will explore how short rows can create the heel of a sock and how it can be used for the toe. We will explore simple uses for short rows including: slipped into an existing pattern to enhance the fit of a garment or enhance a design element.

Required prerequisites: Knit, Purl, Cast On, and Bind Off.
