STITCHES United 2019 Classes
Back To STITCHES United 2019 Class List

NEW
Thursday 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
5388 Easy German Short Rows; Eins, Zwei, Drei 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.

1089 Intermediate Shorty the Short-row Bear Shorty is a colorful 4″ teddy bear which uses German short rows to create a big round tummy, a bottom so the bear can sit, no-sew ears, pointed toes, curved arms, and contrasting colored pads on the hands and feet. The body is worked sideways then stitches are picked up to add the appendages. Shorty is the Baby from my Three Shorty Bears pattern, and can be substantially completed in class, using approximately 4g of each of 5 colors of worsted yarn found in a mini pack or selected individually. The class includes full Three Shorty Bears pattern as a free download with instructions for the Mama & Papa bears, using the remainder of the mini pack, about 100g total.
