Short-row Magic with Patty Lyons
You’ve learned how to short row, you’ve even done it in a pattern, but how do you apply it to your own knitting? Learn how to use this little bit of knitting magic to adapt patterns to fit you better. Learn how you can replace existing pattern elements such as neck shaping, armhole bind-offs, and shoulder shaping. We will also explore how you can add functional elements to your garment such as creating bust darts or raising the back of a yoke sweater, as well as adding decorative elements to existing patterns such as shawl collars and shirt-tail hems. Short rows truly are magic!
Note: Short rows will not be taught in this class. Knowledge of any short-row technique is required.
