Shorty the Short-row Baby Bear

Shorty the Short-row Baby Bear

With Laura Barker April 9, 10am-12pm CDT Shorty, a colorful 4" Teddy Bear, is a study in German short rows. They help create a round tummy, a bottom so the bear can sit, no-sew ears, pointed toes, and curved arms. Add contrasting colored pads on the hands and feet and no one can resist! Class sessions will be recorded and remain accessible online to registered students of the class for 7 days following the event.
Edgy, Easiest Entrelac Ever

Edgy, Easiest Entrelac Ever

With Laura Barker April 9, 4-6pm CDT Have you wanted to learn entrelac, or tried and been confused by different slanting rectangles and those beginning, ending, and edge triangles? Let's take full advantage of the intrinsic shape of the rectangles to create a zig-zag edged scarf: there's no need to learn any triangles. Class sessions will be recorded and remain accessible online to registered students of the class for 7 days following the event.
Rising Tides Mini

Rising Tides Mini

With Laura Barker April 10, 1-3pm CDT From the cover of Knitter's 125, Winter 2016 and into your wardrobe. This knit looks like a complicated argyle stripe pattern but is really the result of short rows repeating along the scarf length. Class sessions will be recorded and remain accessible online to registered students of the class for 7 days following the event.
Upstairs and Down, Short-tier Entrelac

Upstairs and Down, Short-tier Entrelac

With Laura Barker April 11, 10am-12pm CDT Upstairs and Down is a reversible scarf of ribbed entrelac rectangles, no triangles. The colors form stairs in the pattern and this orientation highlights entrelac's woven appearance. As you begin your scarf, you'll also learn the ribbed cabled cast-on and Laura's double half-stitch pickup method for a fully reversible scarf. Class sessions will be recorded and remain accessible online to registered students of the class for 7 days following the event.
German Short-Rows: Eins, Zwei, Drei

German Short-Rows: Eins, Zwei, Drei

With Laura Barker April 11, 4:00-6:00pm CDT German Short-rows involve no wraps, markers, or other extras. Learn to work them in stockinette and how to fix them when the unthinkable happens. Laura will also explain how to substitute them in patterns that call for other methods. Class sessions will be recorded and remain accessible online to registered students of the class for 7 days following the event.
