Class Description

 The Long and Short of It:  Comparing Shore Rows will examine 5 different short row methods (Wrap and Turn, Japanese, Yarnover, German, and Twin Stitch.)

A knitter who knows how to use short rows can change the shape of a garment, create a wedge, or even turn two-dimensional knitting into a three-dimensional sculptural form. What an amazing technique! At this workshop, taking place in person on July 13, Patty Lyons, nationally recognized knitting instructor and technique expert, will teach five different ways to knit short rows.

Prerequisites: This is a class for intermediate-level knitters who can cast on, knit, purl, bind off, and work these in a pattern without supervision. Students have a basic understanding of what a short row is and how it works. Knowledge of one short-row method is helpful, but not required.
Class Materials: Aran- to chunky-weight yarn in a light color and a contrasting color, so it’s easy to see the stitches (no variegated yarn!); needles in a size appropriate to the yarn; locking stitch markers and/or coil-less safety pins
Homework: Cast on 17 stitches and work stockinette stitch for 1 inch, ending ready to work a RS row. Review this intro video to familiarize yourself with the concept of short rows.

This is a paid intermediate-level workshop with opportunity for 15 students to work closely with Patty. If you are interested we urge you to respond quickly to reserve your spot. 

Class Size: Limited to 15 participants
