Short-rows have unapologetically taken over knitting patterns. Designers are using them to create everything from turning a heel, incorporating bust shaping, or simply to create a unique shape in a pattern with interesting construction. Whether you are just discovering short-rows or have been working them for a while this class will uncover the mystery of when to use which technique and how they differ. In this we class will cover in depth the Wrap and Turn (w&t), German, and Japanese Short-Row methods.
