Friday 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.

4121 Intermediate Upstairs and Down, Short-tier Entrelac Yarn pooling is fascinating—socks, short-row scarves, and entrelac all come to mind. How about entrelac short rows! Or should that be short tiers? The result; "Upstairs and Down" published in Knitter's Magazine 115, Summer 2014, is a reversible scarf of ribbed entrelac rectangles, no triangles, in a mostly rectangular shape. The woven nature of entrelac is highlighted by this orientation, but the colors form stairs in the pattern, emphasized at the ends of the scarf.

4122 Easy Rising Tides Mini The Rising Tides scarf graced the cover of Knitter's Magazine 125, Winter 2016. Although it looks like a complicated series of waves, it is the result of repeating short rows across the length. You will create a mini version to learn the crochet cast-on, and the T&DS (turn and double stitch) short row, sometimes known as a German short row.
