German Short Rows; Eins, Zwei, Drei with Laura Barker
German short rows involve no wraps, pins, or other accessories. At the short-row turn, we create a double stitch. This double stitch is visibly bigger than the surrounding stitches, but when worked in a subsequent row,it is transformed, filling the short-row gap beautifully on the front and back of your work. Class will also cover places to use German short rows, how they compare to other short-row methods, and how to substitute them in patterns. Finally, you'll learn how to fix a double stitch that goes rogue.
