Short Row Savvy with Laura Bryant
Short rows, the act of working a partial row and then turning, offer amazing possibilities to both shape knitting and for stunning graphic effects. You will learn the mechanics of the "wrap and turn" necessary to avoid holes that form when work is turned in the center of a row, and also the German method of short rows. We will explore short rows with contrasting colors for visual design elements; to create flounces and ruffles; to place fullness where desired, as in bust darts; and to accommodate a need for longer lengths, such as in backs that tend to hike up.

Optional materials fee: $2 for instructor-supplied yarn
