Double-knitting Short Rows

Until recently, my entire reason for using short-rows was to create the bottom triangles in double-knit entrelac. While this is a worthy pursuit, there are a lot of other reasons to use short rows and perhaps you'd like to learn how to adapt a short-row pattern to double-knitting.

In this workshop, I'll teach you three different methods: a wrap-and-turn short-row, a shadow-wrap short-row, and, yes, double-knit German short-rows; there's a fourth bonus short-row technique in the handout as well!

This is a brand-new workshop and has no sample art yet; thanks for your patience!


(what to know)

You should have taken the Introduction or Advanced Beginner workshops or have facility with modern (two colors at once) double-knitting. You should also be familiar with at least one short-row technique in single-layer knitting, and be comfortable following charts.


(what to bring)

2 distinct solid colors (1 light, 1 darker) of plain yarn in the DK to worsted weight range and a pair of straight or circular needles in an appropriate size for your chosen yarn.
