Knitting Techniques: Short Rows
What’s a short row? What’s a wrap and turn? This class is a great opportunity to learn this essential knitting skill so you can create beautiful shapes in your knitwear.
Choose your short row project from either the Ravi Nua sweater or the Waiting for Rain Shawl! Both projects are great examples of short row shaping; pair either of these with the beautiful Nua yarn and you will have a super soft and light garment that you will love for years to come.
Skills needed: This class is for knitters who are comfortable with the knit stitch and the purl stitch.
