Short rows are a very handy way to add shaping to your knitting in both conventional and unexpected ways. Use them to turn a heel on a sock, better tailor a garment to your shape, or add unexpected twists and turns to accessories. In this class, we'll discuss the mechanics of short rows, try out different short row techniques, and think about when and where to use them.
