How much do you know about short rows? More and more popular knitting patterns are using this fascinating technique for both fit and fashion. In sweaters, short rows can shape the back of the neck, create rounded fronts, lengthen the back or sides, angle cuffs, shape collars, and more. Short rows are used not only for shaping but also creating fun three-dimensional textures and artistic colorwork that looks like a free-hand painting. Want to make geometric shapes like wedges, circles, and waves? You need short rows. The more you learn about them, the more you see where to apply them. In this class, learn 4 easy ways of working short rows (wrap and turn, German, Japanese, and shadow), how to substitute your favorite method in a pattern, how to calculate the sequence of short rows, and how to use them to make different shapes.
