10 a.m. - 12 p.m. Short Rows $75

Short rows are everywhere! Until you learn to work them, they can seem intimidating. Don’t let that fear keep you from casting on for an amazing pattern. Short rows are partial rows of knitting that are worked to shape or curve sections of a piece of knitting, without increasing or decreasing stitches. 

In this workshop, you’ll learn how to knit several different short rows methods. We will discuss the difference
between the methods and how to substitute your favorite. There is a short row method for you!

Intermediate Skill Level: must be able to cast on, bind off, knit, purl, read/follow a pattern, and work a variety of stitch patterns with combinations of knits and purls.
Materials list and homework will be emailed to you after registration.


1p.m. – 4 p.m. Nightshift Shawl $105 + materials for shawl (yarn and pattern not included) Choose this class and get 10% off your yarn purchase for the shawl. 

NightShift by Andrea Mowry has been on the “what’s hot now” page on Ravelry since it came out in 2018. It is still one of the most compelling projects out there. This project checks all the boxes: engaging project (watching the colors shift), larger needles (instant gratification), and a unique accessory (you knit that?!).

In this class you’ll learn the techniques used in this popular Andrea Mowry pattern, including sideways shawl construction, mosaic knitting, I-cord edging, I-cord bind off, increasing, decreasing, slipping stitches, and changing colors.

Adventurous Advanced Beginner (and up) Skill Level: must be able to cast on, bind off, knit, purl, work basic stitch patterns with combinations of knits and purls, simple increases/decreases, and follow written instructions.

Materials lists and homework for each class will be emailed to you after registration.
