What’s so Special about Short Rows?
Carol Feller has written the book on short rows, literally! Most knitters have heard about short rows, often they’re just an annoying extra you have to add to your work. But did you know that this simple technique can create magical results? You can transform flat surfaces into three dimensions, and add curves to straight lines. Come learn all about Carol’s favourite short row techniques, how she adds them to her knitting, and explore the wide range of ways they can be used in your knitting. What fun it will be to virtually visit with Carol at her studio in Ireland!
No homework is necessary but if you have some yarn and needles you can try a few of the techniques as she talks through them.
Bio: As with many Irish children Carol learned to knit while still in primary school and spent many years knitting cardigans for her dolls and occasionally herself.
Carol trained initially as a textile artist and then as a structural engineer. While both of these backgrounds are very different the influences can be seen in her design work which is well-shaped, flattering to wear and enjoyable to knit.
She is the founder of Stolen Stitches and has been widely published in books and magazines and travels the world teaching in yarn shops and fibre festivals. The classes she teaches cover a wide range of subjects from basics, cables and chart reading, through garment shaping and customization right through to short rows and colourwork.
