I’ve been dropping hints about my new craftsy class for few weeks now and it’s getting very close to launch! I’m doing a giveaway for this new class, Essential Short Row Techniques, just enter the raffle on the Craftsy form here. The class will be launched in early March and I’ll post a link for you all once it’s live :-)
A few years ago I did a free mini-class with Craftsy on Short Rows. This class is the starting point for the new class. I covered short row basics in that class but it was information only (no interaction from me). Students still had a lot of questions on short rows. What do you do with short rows in reverse stockinette? What about ribbing or in the round or even with a lace pattern? My new class will look at all of these situations so you’ll be able to work short rows with all sorts of patterns. There is a lesson on German short rows, one of my new favorites! I’ll show you how to create slopes on either the right or left side of a fabric and how to change the slope with short rows. I’ll show you how to work a hat from side-to-side with short rows and how to work 2 different types of short row heel/toe.
This class will take you from basic short rows in stockinette stitch to being about to use short rows in almost any knitting situation! As you can probably tell I’m very, very immersed in Short Rows this year between this new Craftsy class and my Short Row Knits book. Actually the two go very nicely together as you can see the techniques in action on Craftsy and then use the book patterns to practice them with.
