Bristol Ivy - Short Rows

  • Water of Leith Centre 24 Lanark Road Edinburgh, Scotland, EH14 1TQ United Kingdom (map)

Short rows are a very handy way to add shaping to your knitting in both conventional and unexpected ways. Use them to turn a heel on a sock, better tailor a garment to your shape, or add un-expected twists and turns to accessories. In this class, we’ll discuss the mechanics of short rows, try out different short row techniques, and think about when and where to use them. Experience needed: decreasing.

Level: Advanced beginner

Skills needed: Students should be familiar with decreases

Materials to bring: Smooth, non-haloed, light-colored worsted weight (heavy DK/8-ply) yarn and appropriate needles (approx 4-5mm).

Any "homework"?: Students should cast on 30 stitches and work about an inch in stocking stitch prior to class, ending ready to work a RS row.

Class size: 19

Extra note: This class takes place on Wednesday EVENING!
