...when, why, and how to use them!
In this class you will learn several different techniques for short rows to add shaping to your knitting and where to use them. You will learn how to add shaping to a neckline worked in the round, how to shape shoulders, bust darts and hem lines. Examples of my designs that use this method of shaping will be available to view in class.
Skills needed: Knitting in the round
Materials to bring: notepad and pen, knitting yarn and matching circular needles (dk or worsted weight will work best), safety pins or locking stitch markers, darning needle, crochet hook (same size as knitting needles) and some waste yarn.
Any “homework”?: 1. Neckband (starting point for short row use in neck shaping): cast on 40 sts and join to knit in the round. Work 4 rounds in 1x1 Rib (k1, p1), then knit 1 round. Stitches should be left live on the needle.
2. Bust darts and hem lines: cast on 28 sts, work 6 rows in Garter stitch, then 4 rows in Stockinette stitch. Stitches should be left live on the needle.
