In this class we will explore the basic mechanics of short row colourwork, how to balance a fabric, and consider how this construction technique influences colour and form. This is an ideal class for adventurous knitters interested in manipulation of fabric and/or considering how we can create colourwork from a different perspective. Samples will be provided for knitters to work through to enhance understanding, and there'll be room for knitters to start to explore their own designs.
Level: Adventurous beginner and above
Skills needed: We'll be covering german short rows and garter stitch - german short rows will be taught but an understanding of them will help.
Materials to bring: Knitting needles - flat or circulars as we'll mostly be working flat. DK, worsted or Aran weight yarn in at least two colours.
Any "homework"?: None
