Mastering German Short Rows: SA Aug 13 & 20, 4-6 pm
|Availability:||In stock (2)|
German short rows are a commonly used technique to add shaping to a garment or create gorgeous curves with colorwork, but can trip a lot of knitters up. In this workshop we’ll work on Piace, a striking wrap whose patterning is created entirely through german short rows. By the end, this technique will be your best friend! We’ll also get some practice with working a slipped i-cord edging and working stripes without having to cut our yarn.
