Write a review

Short Rows: do those words make you wince?  Short rows are used to create shaping in knitwear, and because it involves working just partway across a row and then turning, a thing has to happen to prevent holes at the turning point. That thing is a Short Row, and it is not hard, and despite what a pattern may say, you can choose which method you wish to use.  This class will cover three of the most common ways to work short rows, what it means to "resolve" a short row stitch, why the different methods work, and which ones may be better for certain yarns.  You should know how to cast on, knit, purl, and bind off


Wed. July 24, 3:00 - 4:00


Smooth, light-colored worsted or DK weight yarn and appropriate needles to match


Three ways to work short rows.

    "I'm so excited to finally find my perfect local yarn store. They carry such an amazing range of yarns, from locally sourced to small batch sheep to skein to naturally dyed. I've been twice (so far!) and I'm always greeted so nicely. It doesn't feel clique-y or snobby as some shops do. Their range is really amazing and so far I've gotten sweater yarn and yarn for 2 different shawls here. Dawn is great with color advice too. Highly reccomend!" - Google Review
    "I couldn't leave this shop a high enough score. 10000/10. The instant I walked in, I was given a warm greeting and was immediately helped. I went in for sock yarn but, was overwhelmed by all the amazing local yarn. I love that they have a direct relationship with their yarn artisans. She even stayed a few minutes past closing when I was having problems picking just one skein. Never felt rushed or like she wanted me gone. She took the time to make sure I was getting exactly the righ.t product and even put my skein into a cake That's an amazing service that I've never been offered before. I can't say enough good things about this place. Ill definitely be making the trip there more often!" - Google Review
