Short rows are a fascinating knitting technique that can turn a heel, create a toe, add a little extra length to a sweater or raise the back of a neckline.  Yet this simple technique is misunderstood, and feared, by many knitters.

In this class you will learn how to execute short rows as a basic technique. You will learn the difference between German short rows and Wrap and Turn. You will explore how short rows can create the heel of a sock and also can be used for the toe.  We will explore simple uses for short rows: slipped into an existing pattern to enhance the fit of a garment or enhance a design element.
