No-wrap Short Rows with Courtney Spainhower
Short rows are one of the most useful skills any knitter could use for shaping--they can ensure a neatly fitted sweater, neck, or sleeve.
Many knitters still struggle to obtain a tidy turn. Courtney will introduce knitters to her favorite way to work short rows--the one exclusively used in her designs.
When working these no-wrap short rows, students will learn to execute the technique for fabrics worked flat or in the round, and to read the fabric so that stitch markers aren't needed to mark turns.
__Knitting Basics: Sharp scissors, Notebook, Pen or pencil with eraser, Stitch markers, Tapestry needles (large and small), Tape measure, Small calculator,
__Bulky yarn to practice with
__US 10, 10.5, OR 11 16” circular needle
__ US 10, 10.5 OR 11 straight needles (or a second circular needle, if you prefer)
Using your 16” circular needle and bulky yarn, cast on 64, place marker, and join to work in rounds.
