How much do you know about short rows? Many modern knitting patterns use this fascinating technique to shape shawls and especially sweaters, creating rounded fronts, longer backs or sides, angled cuffs, shaped collars, and more. Making different geometric shapes like wedges, circles, and waves require short row; the more you learn about them, the more you see where to apply them. Not only short rows are used for shaping, they can be involved in creating fun three-dimensional textures in one or more colors as well as artistic color work that looks like a free-hand painting. Interested in this technique? Join us and learn four easy ways of working short rows, how to replace a method used in the pattern with your favorite, how to calculate the sequence of short rows, and see how they are applied for making various shapes.
